Discover the 6 best phones with 5G in 2020
The 5G connection is already becoming a reality around the world. China currently has the largest 5G infrastructure. Brazil is still in its infancy, so it is still not worth investing in the best 5G phones in 2020.
Even if purchasing a 5G phone is not a recommendation for us at the moment, if you are eager for technological news, you may already be looking for the best phones with 5G. To help you in this task, we have gathered the 6 best models that are available or that should arrive this year in Brazil.
From the list below, only the first two options are already available in the Brazilian market. The other options have not yet reached our market, but it is possible that they will be launched in the last quarter of the year.
So check out our list of the best 5G phones in 2020 below!
1. Motorola Edge
Motorola Edge is the first and only smartphone among 5G phones available in the country. The other alternative is its Plus model, with better specifications, but in short the same cell phone.
This premium device from the manufacturer comes equipped with an impressive 6.7-inch screen with Full HD + resolution – 1080 x 2340 pixels – and OLED lighting. Motorola Edge carries Qualcomm's Snapdragon 765G processor and the Adreno 620 mobile graphics card.
The cell phone has two variants. Both have 128GB of storage – expandable using memory cards – but one brings only 4GB of RAM, while the other has 6GB.
2. Motorola Edge +
The most powerful version of the previous phone, the Motorola Edge + is also one of the 5G phones on the list and is already available in the Brazilian market.
It has the same screen settings as the previous smartphone. The difference is in the better specifications, bringing the Snapdragon 865 processor. This is the most powerful version of Qualcomm to date, as well as the Adreno 650 graphics card.
Regarding memory and storage, Motorola Edge + brings only one version, with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of space to store your photos, videos and other files. On the other hand, this device cannot have its storage expanded with memory cards.
3. Samsung Note20 5G
Not yet launched in our market, the Samsung Note20 5G will be the first device of the Korean manufacturer in Brazil among phones with 5G. Although the Galaxy S20 has 5G versions, they were not launched in Brazil due to the unavailability of the connection.
Therefore, the Note 20 and its Ultra edition will be the first to arrive in our country with compatibility to 5G connections.
A premium smartphone, it features a screen with Super AMOLED Plus technology of 6.7 inches and Full HD + resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels.
With Android 10, its processor is Samsung's Exynos 990. The graphics card to allow you to enjoy Android games is the Mali-G77 MP11, also developed by Samsung itself.
It is possible that it comes with two variants, according to the RAM and storage you choose. While both have 8GB of RAM, but one has 128GB of storage, while the other will allow you to store up to 256GB of files.
4. Samsung Note20 Ultra 5G
Even more powerful version of the Note20, the Ultra edition will also arrive in Brazil with compatibility to the 5G connection.
It will come with an impressive 6.9 inch screen, with Dynamic AMOLED 2X technology and 120Hz frequency in Full HD resolution, also ideal for games. Its maximum resolution is 1440 x 3088 pixels, but using it will cause the frequency to drop to 60Hz, not so interesting to play.
Also coming with Android 10, it carries the same processor and graphics card as the previous phone. The RAM and storage gains a significant improvement.
The three variants of the device have 12GB of RAM, but with storage of 128GB, 256GB and 512GB. You can expand storage by inserting memory cards.
5. iPhone 12
The next generation of the iPhone will reach the American market later this week, on October 23, 2020. Apple has not yet announced an arrival date for Brazil, but we estimate that it will arrive here later this year.
First generation of Apple devices compatible with 5G connections, the iPhone 12 caused controversy by not including a plug charger and a headset in the box. On the other hand, it will come with MagSafe, a device attached to the rear that allows you to magnetically fit iPhone accessories.
Its 6.1-inch screen will arrive with Super Retina XDR OLED technology, in addition to Full HD + resolution of 1170 x 2532 pixels and 460 density.
It will also arrive with the next edition of Apple's operating system, iOS 14.1. Likewise, the new Apple A14 Bionic chipset will also be included, along with the Apple GPU.
With 4GB of RAM in all its variants, only the storage will differ, with versions of 64GB, 128GB and 256GB, without the possibility of expansion by memory cards.
6. iPhone 12 Pro
Closing our list of the best phones with 5G we have the iPhone 12 Pro, the most powerful version of Apple's next generation. Like the standard edition, it will also be compatible with 5G when it arrives in Brazil.
With the same screen, processor and graphics card as the conventional iPhone 12, the iPhone 12 Pro will differentiate itself by better cameras than the standard edition. In addition, the three variants will have 6GB of RAM, more than the previous one.
The storage options are also better: 128GB, 256GB and 512GB, respectively.
And the Mini and Pro Max versions?
Scheduled to reach American consumers in November, the arrival of the Mini and Pro Max editions of the iPhone 12 is unknown here. That is, it is possible that they would land in Brazil only in 2021, which is why we did not include them in the list.
Still, it is worth mentioning that the four versions of the iPhone 12 will be compatible with 5G. That is, if these two versions arrive in Brazil this year, they are two more alternatives among the best phones with 5G here.
Is it a good time to get one of the best phones with 5G?
As we mentioned at the beginning of the article, we don't recommend worrying about getting the best 5G phones yet, unless you live in the few places where your distribution is starting. Still, it is important to mention that only a selection of the most powerful phones will arrive with the technology.
Because they are very expensive and inaccessible, perhaps it is best to take advantage of some of these cost-effective phones and invest in smartphones with a 5G connection a few years from now.
