Flagship Devices are Driving Shipments of 5G mmWave Smartphones to 128 Million in 2021

The 5G smartphone market is accelerating at a substantial rate.

The network options of both 5G sub-6 Gigahertz (GHz) and mmWave, can enable ultra-fast data throughput using very short-range networks.

The use of mmWave in smartphones has been limited at best so far, this is about to be altered. According to ABI Research, the global 5G smartphones market is set to grow in 2021, reaching over 500m units.

An integral part of the foreseen growth is the expected to raise shipments of mmWave-enabled phones.

Implementing mmWave technology in tight combination with 5G New Radio (NR) sub-6 GHz and dual connectivity with LTE can provide new business opportunities and enhanced mobile experiences while supporting advanced mobility features.
