These are some of the most affordable 4G and 5G-enable smartphones available to people living in South Africa.

South African residents can buy a 4G-capable smartphone for as little as R599, while pricing for 5G devices in the country starts at R2,299.

However, after consulting with mobile network operators, the deadlines were extended, and carriers were given more freedom in planning the shutdown of their legacy networks. “Some operators have indicated that they will commence with the shut down of 3G in June 2024 in support of the policy.”However, the department noted that these dates depend on the outcomes of a risk assessment study to be published within a year of the final next-generation radio frequency spectrum policy’s publication.

These devices aren’t the best-specced when it comes to memory, storage, and chipset hardware. However, they offer affordable access to 4G and 5G connectivity. Those who opt for the Hisense U607 or Vodacom Kick 5 Plus will be locked to Vodacom’s network, while those who buy a Hisense U31 from PEP can only use MTN’s network.
