Android Police reported last year that AT&T would be the first carrier to say it has a 5G network, but the site called it “complete bullsh*t,” as it was merely 4G LTE features (4x4 MIMO, advanced carrier aggregation, and 256 QAM) under an upgraded name. The telecommunications giant is now doubling down on their “marketing nonsense” and potentially confusing users by swapping their phone’s 4G indicators out with “5G E” (“5G Evolution”) ones. AT&T announced a raft of 4G LTE features like 4x4 MIMO and 256 QAM earlier this year to speed up its network in select markets. That's all well and good, but it chose to call the enhanced 4G experience "5G Evolution," which is patently ridiculous. This is marketing nonsense, but most consumers probably didn't encounter it much. They will soon—AT&T phones will start showing a "5G E" icon in the coming months.
