On October 1st at the India Mobile Congress, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the availability of 5G services in India. Both Airtel and Jio have already announced their deployment strategies and begun deploying 5G in a few towns. In the midst of this, consumers' Android or iOS handsets must be 5G compatible in order to use 5G services, and OEMs must send an OTA update to activate the functionality. Now, Motorola, a company owned by Lenovo, has disclosed that a software update will be delivered to its 5G-capable smartphones, enabling customers to connect to the 5G network on their gadgets.
