5G is available in the US, and customers were forced to benefit from the services of one of the carriers. Samsung has released its Galaxy S20 models. All the models released in the US are 5G enabled. This means that the customers of Samsung will be free to benefit from the 5G service everywhere in the country just by buying a SIM card.
The quality of the service will differ with the model
There are three models introduced, Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra and the Samsung Galaxy S20+. These phones will offer great speeds for the 5G network they choose. They come with support for mmWave and sub-6GHz 5G networks. However, Samsung Galaxy S20 is not that quick, but it can still work.
The Samsung 5G devices will work with all the available 5G networks in the US. Keep in mind that the 5G bands from the US are n2, n5, n41, n66, n71, n260, and n261. They are all supported by the Samsung Galaxy S20 series models. They also come with support for DSS (Dynamic Spectrum Sharing).
But there are also some limitations you need to know of. You cannot use the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra and the Samsung Galaxy S20+ with the 5G connectivity because the network may not be supported in other countries. You will only be able to get 3G or 4G, and it really depends on the country. You also need to keep in mind that an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S20 will not use the Verizon 5G service because this service does not come with support for the mmWave technology. The cross-border use has an issue with these devices: the phone that’s sold through the carriers is the Samsung Galaxy S20+, with Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC. It does not come with support for bands n77 and n78., which are the ones that operate in most of the countries.
