In 2019, 5G-enabled devices were first coming to the market. And now, in 2022, it is pretty mainstream. The shift from 4G flagship devices to 5G has been so smooth that many people hardly noticed it. Yes, the main reason 5G is not exactly taking all the hype in these new devices is that network providers worldwide cannot provide everyone with 5G network connectivity. Especially in India, it will probably take a couple more years even to be mainstream. Only selected parts of some countries now have access to 5G connectivity.
But that does not mean that you cannot future prove yourself. If you want a device that lasts a couple of years and can support a 5G network when it becomes available and is manufactured by one of the most trusted manufacturers of smartphones, Samsung, you have come to the right place. Samsung was the first company to launch a 5G smartphone last year, and it was the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G. Since then, many other smartphone manufacturers have joined in, and we now have a wide plethora of phones with 5G connectivity. But for most people, Samsung is still a brand they trust, and if you are also one of them, we have compiled a list of all 5G smartphones from Samsung so far and picked the top Samsung 5G mobiles for 2022 to make your decision easier.
