Samsung today announced that it will push an OTA update to all its 5G smartphones in India by mid-November. Apple also confirmed that a similar update is coming and it will hit iPhones in December.

The information comes after a meeting in India attended by government leaders such as the Telecom Secretary and the MeitY Secretary. Smartphone manufacturers were asked to push updates enabling the 5G services on devices that can operate on standalone (SA) 5G networks.

The statement from a spokesperson said that Samsung has the widest portfolio of 5G devices in the Asian country and that the company is working “closely with carrier partners” to enable Indian consumers to experience 5G seamlessly.

This will allow users of the said phones to enjoy the next-generation connectivity currently provided by two major companies – Airtel and Reliance Jio.

Airtel 5G Plus is currently running in eight Indian cities – Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Siliguri, Nagpur and Varanasi. Reliance Jio is currently in a beta trial phase in four cities – Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata and Varanasi and its True 5G services will be available in these metropolitan areas first.
