However, over the past few months there is one more thing associated to 5G network that is gaining a lot of attention too - the smartphones which have already been released with compatibility to the 5G network. They might be relatively expensive for now considering the fact that 5G would remain exclusive for quite some time but in the end, these are the phones who will take you to the future by actually being “smart” enough.
