Recently we gave you the reasons why we thought that the price of smartphones had hit a ceiling. Devices like the iPhone 11 corroborated it and even the users themselves, choosing mid-range devices such as the Samsung Galaxy A to the detriment of other range stops.
However there is a great but. 5G can be the perfect excuse for brands to raise the price of their terminals. A new technology that will allow firms to charge us more for practically the same. Motorola already warned, its new devices with 5G will not be cheap. However, and luckily, not everything is lost for those of us who have little money in our pocket and we also want to try 5G.
MediaTek allow the launch of cheap phones with 5G
