    I've read that too! I would think when the 5G phones don't sell well, they will lower the price. 5G phones should be coming out next year. It will be interesting to see how the sales go.

    It will never happen. If there’s a premium for 5G, it will be a fee from the carriers, not a cost added to the device itself. They mentioned similar yada yada yada with 4G and it didn’t happen then either.

    Don’t buy anything first gen. There will be flaws in it. There always are. Wait a few generations and it will be worth it.
