by Ville-Petteri Ukonaho | Apr 22, 2022

• Africa is the 5G laggard and will have lowest penetration of all regions in 2027.
• The mmWave is still mainly used in North American market.

• Apple is the leading mmWave device vendor as all its US variants (except SE-models) support the technology.
• The mmWave is still predominantly a premium and high tier device technology due added cost to device BOM thus it won’t penetrate to low tiers anytime soon.
