The latest carrier to launch in the USA is T-Mobile. What phones will it support along with the 5G plan rates and what is the area covered by T-Mobile 5G? Here are all the answers to any of your queries over the network.
Which phones support T-Mobile 5G?
As of right now, T-Mobile is in the early development stage of 5G and hence only a single phone has been confirmed to support 5G network. The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 5G is the device which can run a T-Mobile 5G sim card. Galaxy S10 5G will have a 6.7-inch AMOLED display, Snapdragon 855 processor, 256GB storage and 8GB RAM.
There are reports that T-Mobile is working with other smartphone makers and will soon announce other 5G supported devices. While there are many phones such as OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro which is exclusive to T-Mobile in the US, is expected to have 5G soon.
Coverage Maps and city roll-out
While other 5G carriers work on the high-frequency mm-Wave, T-Mobile has adopted an entirely different approach. T-Mobile has a combination of 28 GHz mm-wave and a lower band 600 MHz wave to provide 5G network all over the US region. Last year, T-Mobile announced that it will bring 5G to more than 30 US cities including New York, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas.
Once it is done with the larger cities, it plans to bring 5G into rural areas. T-Mobile has promised that it will cover 95% of the entire country once its 5G network is installed and fully operating.
T-Mobile 5G Plans
As of now, T-Mobile has not revealed any information about the 5G plans and how much it will cost. It is still at an early stage and there are not many rumors about the detailed plans for T-Mobile 5G. One thing is sure that T-Mobile will have unlimited usage plans an option, as given higher speeds in the 5G network, there is no point in using limited data.
