2. Check out your Smartphone’s Retail Box
Many phone manufacturers try to include 5G band information in their retail boxes. To find out more about 5G band support, it is a good idea to check the box. You should check the radio information at the back of your box. You should indicate NR, New Radio (5G), or SA/NSAband. Manufacturers may also refer to the 5G frequency band.
You can see that all BBK Electronics brands, except for OnePlus, mention the 5G band information in their phones’ retail boxes. Realme, Oppo, and Vivo all include the complete list of 5G bands supported on their smartphones on the back, as well as a variety of details such as the IMEI number and SAR values, RAM+ROM configuration, and more.
We looked at all the famous smartphone makers, including Motorola, Google, and Nothing, and found that no one mentioned the 5G band support on their retail boxes. It is disappointing that smartphone buyers must go to great lengths to obtain 5G band information for their phones.
