Since the launch of the first 5G smartphone several manufacturers have announced that they are working on their 5G models. So far, the 5G phones that are on the market are high-end phones and with prices above the budget of many users, but it seems that this will change soon. According to a report published by Digital Trends, HMD Global is working on a 5G smartphone that will be priced cheaper than current 5G phones. Juho Sarvika, Global Product Manager HMD revealed that the Nokia 5G phone will cost half of today's 5G phones and will arrive next year in the United States.
Currently, 5G phones in the US UU. They have prices that are around $ 1000. Such is the case of Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G that sells for $ 1300. While the LG V50 ThinQ 5G version costs approximately $ 1000. However, iQOO Pro 5G smartphones are still the cheapest and will be available for around $ 650. There are reports that Nokia's next 5G mobile phone will sell between $ 500 and $ 650.
Speaking of Nokia's 5G smartphone, Sarvikas said: “as we enter the market, we can take 5G to a cheaper market; I hope our price is half the price of the current 5G mobile phone. ” However, HMD will have to compete with companies like Motorola that plans to launch cheaper 5G mobile phones next year.
At the moment, the name of the Nokia 5G smartphone that Juho Sarvika refers to is unknown. For this year, the arrival of Nokia 7.2, Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 5.2 phones for the IFA 2019 is expected and by the end of the year the arrival of the Nokia 9.1 PureView 5G. (Source)
