In this, high-end smartphones and Apple and Microsoft Windows Devices will encourage the highest demand.
Gartner said, 9 percent of the smartphones sold by 2021 will be able to work with the 5G network. And In the coming season, most buyers will pay attention only to the utility rather than price, and therefore the sale of high priced devices will accelerate."

Robert Cozza, director of research at Gartner said, "We expect that Apple's sales will be faster than the other market in 2018, in which the introduction of new models will be a major contributor to the trend of changing the phone." Cozza said, We estimate that by the year 2021, 9 per cent of smartphones will be sold with 5G support. "
