Supply chain and chip shortages aren’t stopping IT vendors from flooding the market with 5G-capable smartphones, tablets, and laptops. Check out 10 of the coolest 5G devices you can find today.

The Latest And Greatest

5G, the latest generation of cellular technology, promises blazing-fast speeds and significantly lower latency connectivity. It’s powering brand-new use cases that are exciting and delighting both consumers and business users alike, especially at a time when companies are embracing new forms of connectivity to grow their businesses and think outside the box.

Far from a must-have, cellular connectivity has been historically thought of as a secondary option, and only when the primary connection failed. 5G, however, is turning that thought process on its ear because not only is it one of the fastest, most robust connectivity options the world has seen so far, but it’s power technology well beyond what current mobile technology even allows. It lets applications and communications running on 5G connect and share data in near real-time. It’s opening the door for the acceleration of the shift to autonomous vehicles and the remote monitoring of crops, health and safety, to name a few use cases.

5G went from buzzword to mainstream last year when devices harnessing the latest cellular connectivity option really started hitting the market. While the global supply chain crisis is causing problems for manufacturers struggling to get their hands on the components and chips needed to support 5G, the usual suspects are still coming out with 5G-capable smartphones, laptops, tablets, and 2-in-1’s, including Apple, Samsung, and HP. Also joining the fray with 5G capabilities are market newcomers or manufacturers based outside of the States, like Vivo and Nokia.
