Huawei To Unwrap First 5G Smartphone in 2019

In the Global Analyst Summit, the Chinese company revealed its plans to unveil the first 5G-enabled smartphone probably in the Q3 of 2019. Interesting, this would make debut in the Huawei Mate series smartphone. Rumors claim that Huawei Mate 30 will be the first 5G smartphone. This will have the Huawei’s own 5G modem that is suitable for the smartphones.


Previously, the company has launched the bigger 5G modem, Balong 5G01 that is known to be too large to fit into the smartphones. So, Huawei is working on the 5G modem that is designed especially for the handsets. Since the Mate series handsets normally launch in the Q4 of every year, it is likely that Huawei Mate 30 will appear at the same time.

Huawei's Mobile Wi-Fi HotSpot

Apart from this, Huawei also confirmed the launch of mobile Wi-Fi hotspot for attaining 5G speeds. The interesting point is the same Huawei modem is integrated both into the upcoming smartphone as well as in future Wi-Fi hotspot. With this announcement, we expect even other smartphone manufacturers to come up with their 5G plans. Furthermore, Huawei claims that it is even experimenting on the AI-enabled camera that can render 25 times higher image processing even in the complex environmental conditions. It would be capable enough to identify hundreds of faces simultaneously.


Currently, Huawei Mate 10 features the AI capability through the neural processing unit thus handling multiple AI tasks with an ease. The upcoming AI-enabled device would be much faster and efficient than the present generation AI-based smartphone. Since the upcoming generation would be completely based on  5G technology, it is quite a big challenge for Huawei to come up with the best 5G smartphone. Considering the line up of Huawei smartphones (Huawei P20), the upcoming Mate series will be Huawei Mate 20 this year. And probably the 2019 flagship will come up with the name Huawei Mate 30. There is even a chance that being a 5G smartphone a major milestone for the company, it may prefer a new lineup.
