5G-Devices January 2022: Executive Summary

Key facts

The number of announced 5G devices has risen by 8.9% in the last month to reach a total of 1257 devices. Of these devices, 857 are understood to be commercially available representing 68.2% of all announced 5G devices. This is an increase of 21.7% in the number of commercial 5G devices over the last quarter.

By end-December 2021, GSA had identified:

  • twenty-two announced form factors.
  • one hundred and eighty vendors who had announced available or forthcoming 5G devices.
  • one thousand, two hundred and fifty-seven announced devices (including regional variants, but excluding operator-branded devices that are essentially re-badged versions of other phones), including at least 857 that are understood to be commercially available:
  • six hundred and fourteen phones (up 42 from October), at least 545 of which are now commercially available (up 39 in a month).
  • two hundred and ten FWA CPE devices (indoor and outdoor), at least 98 of which are now commercially available.
  • one hundred and seventy-four modules.
  • eighty-one industrial/enterprise routers/gateways/modems.
  • fifty-five battery operated hotspots.
  • twenty-eight tablets.
  • twenty-eight laptops (notebooks).
  • eleven in-vehicle routers/modems/hotspots.
  • eight USB terminals/dongles/modems.
  • forty-eight other devices (including drones, head-mounted displays, robots, TVs, cameras, femtocells/small cells, repeaters, vehicle OBUs, a snap-on dongle/adapter, a switch, a vending machine and an encoder).
  • six hundred and seventy-six announced devices with declared support for 5G standalone in sub-6 GHz bands, 468 of which are commercially available.

We can expect the availability of devices to continue to improve and for more information about announced devices to emerge as they reach the market. Based on vendors’ previous statements and recent rates of device release, we might expect to see the number of commercial devices getting close to the 1000 mark by the end of Q1 2022. GSA will continue to track and report on 5G device launches during the coming year. Its GAMBoD database contains key details about device form factors, features and support for spectrum bands. Summary statistics are released in this regular monthly publication.
