Full list of 5G Devices in Annex 1
The number of announced 5G devices grew rapidly in 2020, accompanied by a corresponding rise in the number of commercially available 5G devices. By the end of the year, 559 5G devices had been announced, of which almost 60% were understood to be commercially available. This is an increase of 25.9% in the number of announced 5G devices in the last quarter, while the number of commercially available 5G devices has now reached 335, representing an increase of 50.9% in the last three months.
By end-December 2020, GSA had identified:
- twenty announced form factors.
- one hundred and eight vendors who had announced available or forthcoming 5G devices.
- five hundred and fifty-nine announced devices (including regional variants, and phones that can be upgraded using a separate adapter, but excluding operator-branded devices that are essentially rebadged
- versions of other phones), including 335 that are understood to be commercially available:
- two hundred and seventy-eight phones (up 27 from October), at least 233 of which are now commercially available (up 28 in a month). (Includes three phones that are upgraded to offer 5G using an adapter.)
- one hundred and eight FWA CPE devices (indoor and outdoor, including two Verizon-spec compliant devices not meeting 3GPP 5G standards), at least 35 of which are commercially available.
