Accoding to the information, the 3.45GHz midband 5G network will be compatible with a limited number of flagship devices, which have been launched in the year 2022, meaning new devices only.
A new list has surfaced online, where you can check out the high-end flagship phones (Samsung and Apple) and hotspots that will be eligible for the AT&T 5G network.
- Samsung Galaxy S22
- Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus
- Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra
- Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4
- Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4
- Apple iPhone 14
- Apple iPhone 14 Plus
- Apple iPhone 14 Pro
- Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max
- Netgear Nighthawk M6
- Netgear Nighthawk M6 Pro
Only the above devices will be compatible. The Samsung Galaxy S21 series, Galaxy Z Flip 3, and Galaxy Z Fold 3 smartphones are also not on the carrier’s compatibility list.
In August 2022, AT&T reportedly announced upgrading its recent 5G device list to include the iPhone 12, Samsung Galaxy S21, Google Pixel 6, and iPhone 13 series smartphones to support the 3.45GHz mid-band spectrum.
But AT&T assistant VP of corporate communications, Jim Green, said an incorrect list of 3.45GHz compatible devices was inadvertently provided and then incorrectly confirmed during the fact check.
Flagship AT&T devices not on the above list will still be able to connect to the company’s 5G network, including C-band 5G which operates in the same frequency. But the carrier is planning to use both 3.45GHz and C-band to build a strong mid-band network across the country to provide an amazing experience.
