5G has started taking shape in South Africa with a total of three telecoms launching the service for commercial use. With speeds averaging 288Mbps and 503Mbps, anyone who values fast speeds is bound to be attracted to 5G.

Unfortunately, not all smartphones support 5G. A limited number of devices have been launched in the country supporting the next generation of connectivity but due to this small number, the devices are still expensive and lack choice.

For instance, the Samsung devices in South Africa are not 5G compatible, only Huawei and LG have so far partnered with telecoms to avail their 5G capable devices. While this light will definitely grow longer as Samsung launches their Note flagship lineup and Apple introduces iPhones that support 5G, for now, these are the smartphones that support 5G networks in South Africa:
