Voice is still the king of communication in a 5G world and there will be even more consumer and enterprise use cases developed where high-quality voice and communication services experiences are crucial.

5G voice is the regular mobile phone call service that service providers offers on 5G smartphones. This may sound very basic, and from a user point of view it is, you make voice calls on your new 5G devices like you have always done on your mobile phone. But for a service provider, there are a lot of mobile network evolution aspects to consider behind the scene, to secure a high-quality mobile voice service everywhere. To enable service provider voice calls on 5G smartphones and other 5G devices, the network infrastructure used for 4G voice (VoLTE) today will also be used to enable 5G voice calls.

AT&T expands its 5G network to 22 new cities and introduces mmWave 5G+ in some markets

This is the same 5G technology that Verizon is using, and it requires customers to be in very specific locations to connect to it. But when you can get it, AT&T promises speeds up to 2Gbps. Only the Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra support mmWave on AT&T and not the carrier’s variant of the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G.
