Connectivity

It’s been more than a year and a half since Samsung began regularly launching new smartphones with support for high-speed 5G connectivity. Apple, on the other hand, held off on enabling 5G support until its iPhone 12 release--with all four models in the series, including the iPhone 12 Pro, featuring 5G capabilities. That puts the iPhone 12 Pro on par with Samsung’s Galaxy Note 20, which--like a string of Galaxy phones before it--comes with 5G by default. (Side note: The arrival of 5G iPhones isn’t necessarily a bad thing for Samsung. That’s because Apple “really helped drive 4G when it adopted the technology, and I expect the same here,” said Lynnette Luna, principal analyst at research firm GlobalData Technology.)

In terms of 5G service, the Galaxy Note 20 and the iPhone 12 Pro will both offer support for the two major varieties of 5G. Those include the more widely available version, known as sub-6GHz, and the less-widespread but higher-speed version of 5G, known as mmWave (millimeter-wave).
