DNB removed Samsung Galaxy S21 series from its 5G supported devices

Back in December 2021, Digital Nasional Berhad (DNB) officially launched 5G services in Malaysia but only in limited areas such as Putrajaya, Cyberjaya and a few spots in Kuala Lumpur. At the same time, the company also released a list of 5G smartphones that are supported including Samsung devices.

As you can tell by the headline, DNB actually removed the Samsung Galaxy S21 5GGalaxy S21+ 5G and the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G from the list. No reason nor statement was given at all so we don’t know what really happened there. Whatever the reason is, we can’t see this as progress since the Galaxy S22 series is currently on pre-order in Malaysia.

Now that the Galaxy S21 series has been deregulated to the “upcoming 5G support devices”, it’s now alongside other Samsung devices that have yet to be approved by DNB. This includes the Samsung Galaxy A22 5GGalaxy A32 5GGalaxy A42 5GGalaxy A52 5GGalaxy A52s 5GGalaxy Flip 3Galaxy Fold 3Galaxy M52 5GGalaxy Note 20 Ultra 5GGalaxy S20 FE 5G and Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G.

Besides Samsung, the Apple iPhone 12 and 13 series are also on the list. According to the timeline, all these smartphones should get 5G support by the first quarter of 2022. We have one and a half months to go so we can only wait and see.
