Airtel has released 5G in major cities around India. I was excited that my handset would be able to support 5G. But when I opened the Airtel App it showed that the manufacturer has to release a software update on 5G. I was upset. I searched for solutions but didn't find anything.

If they still need to roll out the update on 5G software for ASUS ROG Phone 5s, please do it soon.


  • Strange your problem, there is much need for an update but from Airtel for 5G SA mode, meanwhile the Rog5s must work in 5G NSA with the following frequency bands.

    Il y a au moins une bande de fréquence compatible (3300MHz), vérifie que 5G SA ne soit pas coché

    The 5G bands are those of the ROG5s version C according to the ASUS site, published at the release in Android 11, it is to be hoped that asus did not break them with Android 12 :)

    If you are good in NSA and it still does not work, try a manual search for the 5G network, it should show you the Airtel 5G and 4G antennas then go back to auto

    Airtel website states that the software isn't released to support 5g.

  • I would want the moderators to look into this. And also dont push any random update that corrupts our phone

  • Asus Zenfone 5z will receive 5G software update or not.

  • Come on guys. Release the 5G software update for ROG phones.

  • Please don't worry, they shall send the software update by end of December,2023. And that update shall ensure you buy a new phone

    @Jiaszzz_ASUS @Mattias_ASUS S @keren_ASUS will you guys please have the courtesy to atleast share on the company's behalf about the software update to enable 5g?

    All major brands have either released the update or have given proper schedule for rollout.

    Its only Asus who hasn't! Please respect for what we have paid.

  • But in my rog 5 airtel 5g was working in Siliguri, West Bengal and same thing is showing in my airtel thanks app.


  • Yes, I got the same 5G notification in Raidurg, Hyderabad - the place where most of the major Tech companies are located.

    I have speed tested too and managed to get stable high speed compared to 4G+ VoLTE.

    But the Airtel application still shows that the device needs to roll out an update for 5G that Airtel SIMs need.

    @Jiaszzz_ASUS @Mattia@Mattias@Keren @Mattias could you please look into this?

    And people stop spamming the discussion with problems other than Airtel 5G. If you want to complain about your issues regarding the phone you can start a new discussion.

  • I'm currently not in Siliguri or any 5g enabled city that's why I said 5g WAS working on my rog5.

  • @CH_ASUS @Falcon @allModerators please look into this matter and request ASUS to roll out an update soon

  • No point, even if you write an email to the CEO of Asus
