Number of commercial 5G devices increase of 23.9% since December 2021

The number of announced 5G devices rose by 1.9% in May 2022 to reach a total of 1,400 devices. Of these, 1,062 are understood to be commercially available, representing 75.8% of all announced 5G devices. This is an increase of 23.9% in the number of commercial 5G devices since the end of December 2021.

Highlights this edition include:

192 manufacturers with announced available or forthcoming 5G devices 1,400 announced devices, including regional variants, but excluding operator-branded devices that are essentially rebadged versions of other phones. Of these, at least 1,062 are understood to be commercially available.

Not all devices are available immediately and specification details remain limited for some. We expect devices to continue to become more widely available and for more information about announced devices to emerge as they reach the market.

Based on manufacturers’ previous statements and recent rates of device release, we might expect to see the number of commercial devices approach the 1,200 mark by the end of the second quarter of 2022. GSA will continue to track and report on 5G device launches during the coming year. Its GAMBoD database contains important details about device form factors, features and support for spectrum bands. Summary statistics are released in this regular monthly publication.
