According to a document release from foi.gov.ph. But may not be accurate as with what they indicated for globe, aside from 78 maybe which is a more universal sub6 5G band.
Mine didn't. Bands were gone. I had to do the steps again to make them appear. Also as tribalfs said that we now have an option for NR5G CA. So maybe we can connect to multiple 5G bands now? I am still exploring the new UE settings menu to check if there are other changes.
I have a dual sim model and Smart shows 5g connection. My other sim is GoMo and I haven't seen it connect to 5g yet, but that can be attributed to the horrible reception in my location.Mine didn't. Bands were gone. I had to do the steps again to make them appear. Also as tribalfs said that we now have an option for NR5G CA. So maybe we can connect to multiple 5G bands now? I am still exploring the new UE settings menu to check if there are other changes.
I just saw a method for opening the menu again for Android 11. I saw this on the US thread.
Just check the code on my N9810 BRI
This method only works on Qualcomm versions
I use *#*#276633683782#*#* on Google phone dialer
and it brings up a service mode screen.
Press  RF Test and choose  PREF MODE SET
（or other options also works ）
It will show Please use *#2263# for mode set
Then just tap three dots on right top menu and choose back
It will bring you back to the main menu.
I can finally go to UE settings with this.
4. Go to UE SETTING&INFO -> SETTING -> PROTOCOL -> NAS -> NETWORK CONTROL -> BAND SELECTION -> BAND SELECTION SIM * -> NR5G Band Preference -> (enabled ones are marked with asterisks)
If not yet enabled, select each then -> GO MAIN -> APPLY BAND CONFIGURATION. Exit then reboot
The following are the mobile 5G bands being used in the Philippines from foi.gov.ph:
- Smart: 1, 3, 5, 8, 40, 41 and 78
Update: According to this article in smart website, they are using NR28, NR41 and NR78 with 5G CA.
- Globe: 1, 3, 8, 28, 40, 41
Update: According to Globe's website, they are using NR41 and NR78
View attachment 5327677
-DITO: 1, 28, 34, 41, 78
The 5GNR bands missing is in N9860 are 5, 8, 34 and 40. Theoretically, our device should work in 5G sites utilizing 5GNR bands 1, 3, 28, 41 and 78 which our device is capable of. Otherwise, 5G will not work.
Add the following DITO's IMS APN (in addition to internet APN)
DITO IMS APN:
APN type: ims
APN protocol: IPv4/IPv6
APN roaming protocol: IPv4/IPv6
DITO INTERNET APN:
Name: DITO Internet
Update: Confirmed working on TGY and BRI
It was a consolidated effort. Also the only necessary part on enabling 5G is the first part. I just included the next 2 parts to increase signal strength and diversity stuff. Although I don't understand what they do fully, I've researched a little and enabling them will not hurt battery life while increasing the strength of signal. Correct me if I'm wrong on this.xUtsumi and kent800129.....Greetings form the UK
Huge thank you to your both.
I had almost givem up with this dam phone. Although it is my wife's , no 5g had stopped me importing one for myself.
