  1. Are there any carriers currently using 5G?
    Reply

    Verizon is one carrier that claims to offer 5G service. However, it's a nonstandard form of the 5G network, so whether or not, it is actually 5G is up for debate. Currently it is only offered for its home service, but with the release of phones like the Samsung S10, that is about to change. So, expect 5G mobile phones from Verizon as early as this year. Verizon will offer the Samsung Beyond X and the Beyond Bolt - two versions of the Samsung Galaxy S10. Both phones will offer 5G service, and presumably a 5G Galaxy Note 10 could be released this year as well.

  7. What other potential 5G phones will be released?
    Reply

    A number of ambitious smartphone manufacturers are looking to help bring the 5G network to mobile users sooner rather than later. The OnePlus CEO, Pete Lau, has already indicated the company's interest in releasing a 5G phone as early as 2019, so we can likely expect the OnePlus 7 or OnePlus 7T to be a 5G phone. Additionally, Oppo's newest phone and the Sony XPERIA XZ4 could potentially be 5G offerings. Vivo will also launch a 5G phone in 2019.

  8. Which companies won't likely release 5G phones in 2019?
    Reply

    From what we know, Apple doesn't seem to be in any hurry to rush out a 5G model just yet, which means you won't likely see a 5G phone from Apple until as late as 2020. However, we won't know more till later in the year. Additionally, Google has not yet commented about any 5G plans, so its probably safe to assume there won't be anything from them anytime soon. But if their usual released schedule is any indication, the Pixel 4 will likely be unveiled later this October and it could potentially be a 5G phone. Time will tell.
