If they have one of the latest Android devices and it connects to a tower that’s enabled with 5G Evolution, they’ll soon see a “5G E” indicator pop up on their screen. Initially we’ll roll this out on a handful of devices, with more devices showing the indicator in spring 2019.As it turns out, iPhone owners might soon be glaring at a 5G E symbol themselves. As pointed out by MacRumors, some iPhone owners who installed the second iOS 12.2 beta have noticed that the 4G symbol has transformed into 5G E, as evidenced by the photo below. Incidentally, the E in 5G E stands for "Evolution" and, per AT&T, supports "peak theoretical wireless speeds for capable devices of at least 400 megabits per second." That's a nice speed bump, but there's no getting around the fact that the 5G E symbol above is purposefully misleading. AT&T has been widely criticized for its little 5G E tactic, but there's no indication that the company cares or is even the least bit interested in reversing course.
