Etisalat selling first 5G handset

31 May 2019

United Arab Emirates (UAE) fixed and mobile operator Etisalat has launched its first 5G-capable smartphone, the ZTE Axon 10 Pro. The telco, which has been working with Huawei and Ericsson on its 5G rollout, claims to have already deployed a 5G-enabled network and plans to have 600 5G base stations in service by the end of this year. While it has still to announce a commercial launch of 5G services, Etisalat says consumers buying the new handset will ‘enjoy free access to the 5G network’ with the ZTE device.
