Its been awhile since I heard any new news about 5G.

5G phones have been out awhile however not all countries have a fully working 5G network.
Take India has an example it has the second largest mobile market in the world but still no 5G network.

So majority of 5G phones sold in India are running on 4G network. By the time 5G becomes main stream
new phones will be out with better 5G support. So the millions that paid extra for 5G version phones in India just fell of the hype and marketing BS.

Early adopters tax similar to Windows 11 users. :LOL:
