According to the 9To5Google report, the C-Band 5G is said to bring 5G to the masses, and this tech has the ability to really deliver on the speed promises that carriers have touted for years. However, Pixel 6 owners will have to wait a bit longer to access C-Band 5G from Verizon.
C-Band promises to deliver faster speeds than sub6 or LTE networks, but at a wider range compared to mmWave and without some of the pricey hardware that phones need to connect to those networks.
Now it’s come to the Verizon point, it is reported that Google’s Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are not “fully certified” for accessing the new network just yet.
Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are the only two Google phones that would support C-Band 5G, but not quite the only Android phones. Samsung’s Galaxy S21, S21+, and S21 Ultra along with the Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 all support the new network. Apple also supports C-Band on iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 models.
