Oops. Samsung Galaxy S20 will not support 5G from Plus and Play

Because Polish 5G is not exactly 5G.

Very bad news for people who pre-ordered Samsung Galaxy S20 + 5G or Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G smartphones. Through Twitter, Orange spokesperson, Wojtek Jabczyński announced that these devices in Poland will not support the frequencies 2100 MHz and 2600 MHz, on which they launched "5G" Play and Plus networks. The devices of the South Korean manufacturer will work only with the "real 5G", which in Poland does not work.

5G in Poland? Only theoretically

If anyone bought any of the new products in order to check how 5G works in the first Polish cities, it will be a taste. Mentioned devices will detect the 5G network only when in Poland this network will be launched on the frequencies 3.4 – 3.8 GHz. For now, there is infrastructure in our country operating on a modified 4G network, which really … well, is still a 4G network. Is it the fault of the equipment manufacturer or rather of the operators offering "5G" rather than 5G for now?

Regardless of the answer given to the questions given, it should be remembered that in Poland the current "5G" infrastructure can be easily used by users of last year's Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G (it can be bought now at funny money), and soon a new one Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro.

We recommend that you stop shopping for more expensive smartphones with 5G modems for now. In time, these devices will stop and the network in Poland will develop. Currently, spending extra money for a 5G modem is pointless.
