Etisalat and Du starts selling 5G smartphones
June 2, 2019

You can purchase one right now.

The two telecom providers in the UAE, Etisalat, and Du, have already started selling ZTE Axon 10 Pro. This Android smartphone is one of the first commercially available devices that support the new super-fast 5G network. Du will also be selling a 5G variant of the Huawei Mate X.

5G networks can allow a maximum download speed of up to 1 Gbps with latency reaching only 1 millisecond. Etisalat customers can purchase the smartphone right now, while Du customers have already initiated a pre-order earlier last month where a lucky few will receive the devices for free.

5G from dubai

The ZTE Axon 10 Pro features a 6.47-inch screen with 12 GB of RAM running on Snapdragon 855 processor. It supports dual SIM and IP68 water and dust resistance. If it’s not your top choice for a 5G device, don’t worry as more devices will be unveiled later this year.

It is mentioned that 5G devices can avail of existing data packs, so we’re assuming the prices remain the same. It wasn’t also mentioned which areas will have the 5G coverage.

If you have a 4G device don’t worry since 5G will take a while to be adopted by the masses. That being said, if you prefer having the latest and greatest cellular technology then go ahead and purchase the device at any Etisalat or Du center.
