Premium smartphones that run on a 5G network are expected to hit the market in April, a few weeks later than their original release schedule, due to problems with parts supply and test runs, industry sources have said.

Samsung Electronics Co. is expected to release its 5G version of the Galaxy S10 either early next month or in mid-April, with LG Electronics Inc also forecast to sell the V50 ThinQ that supports 5G networks around mid-April, according to the sources, yonhap news agency reported late on Monday.

Mobile network operator EE said on Wednesday that it will launch Britain’s first 5G service in six major cities on May 30.

EE will switch on its 5G service in London, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Belfast, Birmingham and Manchester later this month, the Xinhua news agency reported.

The company also said that it will roll out 5G rapidly from Wednesday, with more than 100 new 5G sites per month being added, providing 5G in more cities: Bristol, Coventry, Leicester, Nottingham, Sheffield, Liverpool, Hull, Leeds, Newcastle and Glasgow.

Some media reports claimed that EE will launch a 5G network “without Huawei technology as originally planned”.

But a spokesperson from BT, the parent group of EE, said: “As we have previously stated, Huawei will continue to supply our 5G radio network infrastructure — they remain a valued and innovative supplier.”

Under the new 5G network, EE said that some customers will break the one gigabit-per-second milestone on their 5G smartphones. The fastest speed possible when EE launched 4G in 2012 was just 50 megabits per second.

“This is the start of the UK’s 5G journey and great news for our customers that want and need the best connections,” said Marc Allera, CEO of BT’s consumer division. (IANS)
