Apple has no plans to launch 5G-enabled device before 2020 - report

Tuesday 4 December 2018 | 09:25 CET | News
Apple will wait until 2020 before bringing a 5G smartphone to the market, Bloomberg reported, citing sources familiar with the company's plans. Samsung said recently that it will be launching a 5G smartphone in the US with Verizon early next year. As it did with 3G and 4G, Apple will hold out for up to a year after initial deployment before introducing 5G enabled devices.
