New 5G devices 64 in total, excluding regional variants and prototypes not expected to be commercialised
14 new 5G devices added to the GSA GAMBoD database in the last month:
Since the start of 2019 the number of 5G devices has grown rapidly; starting with a few announcements, and then gathering pace as operators in various parts of the world brought their first commercial 5G services to market. As more services go live during 2019, we can expect the device ecosystem to continue to grow quickly. GSA will be tracking and reporting regularly on 5G device launch announcements. Its GAMBoD database will contain key details about device form factors, features, and support for spectrum bands. Summary statistics are released in this regular monthly publication. By the end of May, GSA had identified:
Not all devices are available immediately and specification details remain limited for some devices.
One other potential, but – as far as GSA has been able to determine – not officially announced, 5G device is the Netgear Nighthawk M2 5G Hotspot: reported by secondary sources as planned for Telstra’s network. In addition, Honor has said it is working on an as-yet-unnamed phone due for release in 2H 2019, and earlier versions of the Huawei indoor CPE containing the Balong 5G01 chipset are, according to the vendor, still being used in selected pre-commercial trials.
GSA would welcome information or news about any new 5G devices. Please send any details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
