5G phones are expected to be in Market soon


5G phones are on their way... and it will be here a year earlier than predicted. Nearly two dozen companies said Sunday, 5G New Radio , a flavor of the next-generation wireless network that's expected to be the global standard, should be available for large-scale deployments in 2019.

The technology is expected to be 100 times faster than our current 4G LTE wireless technology and 10 times speedier than what Google Fiber offers through a physical connection to the home.

The companies who've vowed to reach a standard for 5G for that timeframe included a mix of wireless carriers, chip providers and handset makers -- such as Qualcomm, Intel, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile parent company Deutsche Telekom.
