An earlier report revealed that based on Apple support documents, it was suggested that 5G on iPhone 12 might not work while dual SIMs are in use. This seemed like a rather strange thing because why wouldn’t it work, especially if the iPhone 12 already supports 5G on a hardware level, and if you’re subscribed to a 5G plan?
One of the features of Apple’s newer iPhones is that it supports dual SIM. One SIM card slot will be a physical one, and the other will be an e-SIM. This allows users to use two different SIM cards and numbers of a single device, making it ideal for separating work and personal, and also when traveling overseas.
At Apple’s event today, the company has taken the wraps off their brand new iPhone 12 lineup. It seems that the rumors were right because Apple has indeed announced four new models in the iPhone 12 series, which includes the iPhone 12 mini, the iPhone 12, the iPhone 12 Pro, and last but not least, the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
When Google announced the Pixel 4a last month, the company also announced that they had a couple more handsets on the way in the form of the Google Pixel 5 and the 5G version of the Pixel 4a. If you have been looking forward to either handset, you’ll be pleased to learn that the phones have since been announced.
One of the upcoming features of the iPhone 12 is that it will support 5G connectivity. Some analysts believe that this could be a huge deal for Apple and could help boost iPhone sales. However, interestingly enough, a survey conducted by Decluttr has found that maybe Apple users care less about 5G than we think.
One of the rumored features of the iPhone 12 is that it will come with support for 5G. Now thanks to a post by Evan Blass, he shared what appears to be a leaked promo email from a carrier (unspecified) that basically confirms it. In addition to confirming the feature, the email also hints at a possible launch date.
When we think of 5G smartphones, we think of high-end devices that can sometimes be rather expensive. Thankfully, we won’t have to wait years for more lower-end 5G capable smartphones to hit the market because Samsung has recently announced the Galaxy A42 5G, a 5G smartphone designed for the masses.
Back in 2019 when the first 5G smartphones were rolling out, they were pretty much exclusive to flagship devices, which meant that they weren’t exactly what many would consider to be affordable. Thankfully, 2020 seems to have improved on that aspect, and if you’re after a 5G capable handset that won’t break the bank, Motorola might have something for you.
At one point in time, BlackBerry was the darling of mobile phones and almost everyone had a BlackBerry. This is thanks to its unique hardware keyboard along with exclusive services like BBM. If you were a fan of BlackBerry, you might be interested to learn that the company is planning on making a comeback in 2021.
Right now there is a bit of confusion as to when the iPhone 12s will be launched. Some believe that the phones will still be announced in September but could be released later, while others believe that the launch could take place later. Now according to a tweet by Jon Prosser and also Qualcomm, it looks like we can expect the new iPhone 12s in October.
Earlier this year, Samsung announced the Galaxy Z Flip, the company’s second attempt at a foldable smartphone which came in a clamshell form factor. The phone, despite launching in 2020, did not come with support for 5G, although we have heard rumors that the company was planning on introducing a newer model with 5G.
It is widely expected that the iPhone 12 launching this year will support 5G connectivity. However, at this point in time, there are two different types of 5G tech used by carriers – mmWave and sub-6GHz, so the question is, which of these technologies will be used by the iPhone 12?
If you’ve ever worn a face mask, you might have noticed that some of them come with a thin piece of metal in the upper portion of the mask. According to the latest conspiracy theorists, this thin piece of metal is apparently a 5G antenna that the government is trying to hide inside of our masks.
Google is set to launch their new smartphone, the Google Pixel 4a. Initially, there were rumors that the handset could be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 chipset instead of the Snapdragon 765G chipset, which meant that the phone would not support 5G. This was a bit disappointing.
According to the rumors, Apple’s iPhone 12 will feature support for 5G. In a new report from DigiTimes (paywall), the publication is claiming that Apple’s partner TSMC is expected to begin production of the A14 chipsets this month, which we suppose isn’t too surprising, but what’s interesting is the claim that TSMC will also be making Qualcomm’s X60 modem that will find its way into the iPhone 12.
Lenovo Flex 5G Laptop Landing Worldwide This WeekEditor's Pick
Lenovo was the first PC OEM to demonstrate a 5G laptop at COMPUTEX 2019 with its Project Limitless 5G technology demonstration with Qualcomm, then announced this product at CES 2020 as Yoga 5G.

In the past few years, HTC has been relatively quiet on the smartphone front. However, it seems that the company is ready to step back into the spotlight as they have since officially announced their first smartphone for 2020, which is also their first 5G smartphone. This comes in the form of the HTC U20.
Right now none of Apple’s devices support 5G. That is expected to change later this year when Apple is set to launch their first 5G devices in the form of the iPhone 12. However, for iPad users looking for 5G connectivity, then you might have to wait until 2021 because according to a tweet by @L0vetodream, a 5G iPad Pro is set to drop in either Q1 or Q2 2021.
5G was heralded to be the next big thing in mobile connectivity and technology. However, there are some people who don’t believe this to be true, and believe that 5G is somehow leading to health complications. More recently, there are some who are buying into a conspiracy theory that claims that 5G could somehow spread the coronavirus.
Google’s Pixel 5 is largely expected to be announced later this year. It will be the company’s flagship phone for 2020, except that there is mounting evidence to suggest that the handset will not be sporting flagship hardware If you were rightfully assuming that the phone could come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset, think again.
