List of Affordable 5G Smartphones under 20K in the Philippines this 2021


5G is the fifth generation of wireless technology, and will offer ultra-high connection speeds. The new generation of mobile network connectivity is starting to become available in the Philippines and it will be the next big thing to hit the internet.


The 5G coverage in the Philippines is still limited to most urban areas as of this writing. But considering how local telecom companies are proactively adapting the technology, we expect more areas in the country to gain 5G access as weeks, months and years pass by.

Future phones will be able to stream live 4K video to multiple devices, download your favorite movie in a matter of seconds and even wirelessly charge your battery using super high-speed connections. 5G phones have become more affordable, so if you’re looking for a smartphone with support for this latest technology, this list if for you.

Just remember that this list consists of smartphones that were officially brought to the country by their respective manufacturers, with the right SRP and after-sales support. They also support the 5G network offered in the country. We’ll be updating this list as more 5G phones get introduced locally.
