Digital Nasional Berhad (DNB) has announced that the Samsung Galaxy A73 5G is now compatible with Malaysia’s 5G network. This comes after Samsung had pushed a software update that enables local 5G support for the Galaxy S21 and S22 series.
Yes 5G is currently the first and only telco to offer 5G services in Malaysia. If you’re a subscriber on a Samsung Galaxy A73 5G, you’re advised to check for a software update under Settings > Software Update. With the latest update, you should be able to connect to the 5G network if you’re within DNB’s coverage areas.
So far there’s no update yet for other 5G-ready Galaxy A models such as the Galaxy A33 and A53. Even the foldable models such as the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 are still not supported yet.
At the moment, DNB’s 5G network is available in selected areas of Kuala Lumpur, Cyberjaya and Putrajaya. They have recently expanded their network to cover selected areas in Johor Bahru and Selangor.
