5G Devices: Member Report – July 2021

Executive Summary

Key facts

The number of announced 5G devices has continued to grow, reaching 873, an increase of 24.2% over the last quarter. Of these announced 5G devices, 63.8% are understood to be commercially available. The number of commercial 5G devices has grown by 29.2% over the last quarter, to reach 557 commercial 5G devices.

By end-June 2021, GSA had identified:

twenty-two announced form factors.
one hundred and thirty-one vendors who had announced available or forthcoming 5G devices.
eight hundred and seventy-three announced devices (including regional variants, but excluding operator-branded devices that are essentially rebadged versions of other phones), including 557 that are understood to be commercially available:
four hundred and thirty-one phones (up 15 from May), at least 381 of which are now commercially available (up 31 in a month).
one hundred and fifty-eight FWA CPE devices (indoor and outdoor), of which 56 are now commercially available.
one hundred and nineteen modules.
fifty-three industrial/enterprise routers/gateways/modems.
thirty-nine hotspots.
fifteen laptops (notebooks).
sixteen tablets.
ten in-vehicle routers/modems/hotspots.
thirty-two other devices (including drones, head-mounted displays, robots, TVs, USB terminals/dongles/modems, cameras, femtocells/small cells, repeaters, vehicle OBUs, a snap-on dongle/adapter, a switch, a vending machine and an encoder).
four hundred and eighty-five announced devices with declared support for 5G standalone in sub-6 GHz bands, 332 of which are commercially available.
Not all devices are available immediately and specification details remain limited for some devices.

We can expect the device ecosystem to continue to grow quickly and for more information about announced devices to become available 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 surpassing the 625 mark by the end of Q3 2021. GSA will be tracking and reporting regularly on these 5G device launch announcements. 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.
