Vi, Jio, and Airtel recently announced 5G services in India. Services are now available in a few cities as a result of the 5G rollout. While 5G-enabled handsets and 5G services are available in cities, many 5G smartphone users cannot use 5G services. It is due to the fact that some smartphone manufacturers have not enabled 5G services on their devices, but a software update will soon fix this issue.

On Wednesday, Samsung announced all 5G-enabled smartphones would receive an OTA update by mid-November 2022, allowing Indian consumers to experience 5G. Airtel 5G Plus, currently the only 5G service available, is compatible with nine Samsung handsets, despite Samsung having one of the largest portfolios of 5G devices.

Airtel 5G is available to Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4, Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4, Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, Samsung Galaxy S22, Samsung Galaxy S22+, Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, Samsung Galaxy A53 5G, and Samsung Galaxy A33 5G users.

“Samsung has pioneered 5G technology development since 2009 and took the leading role in standardizing 5G technology globally. In India, Samsung has the widest portfolio of 5G devices. We are working closely with our operator partners and are committed to rolling out OTA updates across all our 5G devices by mid-November 2022, enabling Indian consumers to experience 5G seamlessly.”
