Want to check if your mobile phone will support 5G service or not? Here’s a way to find it out
A new era of mobile devices with extremely fast internet was heralded by the inauguration of 5G services in India on Saturday, October 1. On the 5G network, internet capacity and speed will be at least ten times higher than they are on the 4G network.
India has now joined a select club of countries, including the US, Korea, UK, Japan, China, and countries in Europe, that provide 5G networks.
The adoption of 5G technology will have a significant positive impact on society. It will be possible to achieve large data speeds, extremely low latency, and extremely reliable communication.
Some of the locations where this service has started to run include Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Madras, Ahmedabad, Chandigarh, Delhi, Gandhinagar, Gurugram, Hyderabad, Jamnagar, Kolkata, Lucknow, Mumbai, and Pune. The 5G network is now operational as of October 1. Reliance Jio, Airtel, and Vodafone-Idea launched this service in India initially. Initially, confirm that your outdated phone is compatible with the 5G network.
Airtel first told its customers that they simply needed to make sure their mobile handset supported 5G technology rather than switching from their present 4G SIM card to a 5G card.
Here is how you can check if your phone supports 5G or not.
To check if your phone is a 5G phone or not, Airtel users should use their mobile device to go to Google Play and download the Airtel Thanks app. The 5G Plus banner will then appear on the front page of the app when you launch it after that. Whether or not your phone supports 5G will be indicated here.
After tapping the banner, a new page will open. If you reside in one of the cities where this service was first offered, the company will explain. Additionally, the business will examine the mobile device’s 5G compatibility. Airtel will now request that you visit the settings. You can select 5G as your preferred network by clicking here to enter the settings’ network tab. After that, 5G signals will start to reach phones.
