5G phone sales to take off next year and hit 1 bln by 2025

Thursday 3 October 2019 | 14:16 CET | News
Global 5G smartphone shipments are set to soar in 2020 after a slow start this year before accounting for nearly half of all phones sold within five years, according to research from Strategy Analytics. The lack of usable networks is putting off early adopters of 5G devices but the rate of less than 1 percent of phones sold in 2019 is set to grow to nearly 10 percent in 2020 thanks to the availability of more mid-range devices, especially in China.
