Your Cheat Sheet to the Best 5G Mobile Phones in Singapore
After years of rumours and anticipation, 5G mobile phones are finally on our doorstep. The insanely fast mobile data speeds made possible by this crazy tech are becoming a reality as Singapore’s new 5G network finally began rolling out across the country in 2021. The public is expected to get complete access to a standalone and fully kitted out 5G network within a few years, which makes it a massive factor to consider when forking out for a new mobile phone this year.
Options for 5G phones were limited when it first crept into the headlines, but now there are a boatload of awesome devices to choose from that support 5G data. Whether you want to be an early adopter or just future-proof yourself for an eventual network upgrade, you’ll have no trouble finding the perfect 5G mobile phone in Singapore.
Samsung 5G phones
Samsung phones are leading the pack when it comes to 5G thanks to sheer numbers, with a range of network-ready phones that you can pick up today. There are models to suit anyone from flagship addicts to bargain hunters, making it easy to snag a Samsung 5G phone in Singapore no matter your budget. The S20 and S21 series both come 5G-ready, along with a bunch of other awesome models in their catalogue:
High-end phones with big displays
Affordable, pocket friendly alternatives
Tablets and foldables
Picking up a new 5G mobile is pretty simple for iPhone lovers, with every model in the iPhone 12 series 5G compatible. The launch of four mobile phones in this family gives you plenty of choice depending on your priorities: the 12 is an overall crowd pleaser, the 12 Mini is the perfect pocket-friendly 5G iPhone, and the 12 Pro and Pro Max are ideal for power users.
Oppo 5G phones
If you’re on the hunt for a 5G Oppo phone, you want to be looking at the Reno series. The Reno 5 and Reno 5 Pro have been Oppo’s main focus when it comes to 5G, though future flagships from this growing brand will probably follow suit. While there may not be as many 5G Oppo phones to choose from right now, it’ll be hard to walk away from these two phones once you see the cool features packed into each of them.
Huawei 5G phones
Are Huawei phones more your pace? You’re spoilt for choice in terms of 5G, with a number of models already compatible with the network being rolled out across Singapore. The P40 series and Mate 40 Pro are some of the craziest flagships around, while the Nova 7 SE offers plenty for the more budget conscious among us.
Flagship phones for power users
OnePlus 5G phones
As if you weren’t already swimming in 5G phones to choose from, we’d be foolish to leave OnePlus phones out of the party. The brand is praised for breaking barriers with affordable mobile phones that boast designs you’d expect in a top-shelf flagship. The Nord N10 and 8T are no exceptions, packing tons of features and future-proofing you with 5G readiness.
