5G is no more away from your doorstep. Today Huawei announced its first 5G chipset for smartphones at MWC 2018. Companies are showing their creativity and innovations at the global tech event named Mobile World Congress held in Barcelona, Spain. Huawei is in full mode to rule over the event. The company has recently introduced a new range of tablets as well. And with the big announcement of 5G, it took eyes on the future of the network.
The company introduced its first mobile level 5G chipset named Huawei Balong 5G01 chip which will likely to support a new 3GPP standard for 5G network. This chipset will allow a user gain a downloading speed of upto 2.3Gbps. As the size of the chip is currently out for its fit in a smartphone, thus it will limit to hotspots only.
Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei says that the company has invested over $600 million in the network technology which will allow users to get 5G technology linked with their regular works like from self-driving cars to a wide range of smart home devices. Huawei claims that they will be the first company to offer “an end-to-end 5G solution through its network, devices and chipset-level capabilities.”
This is not the first time when 5G chipsets are in highlight, about a year ago Intel announced its 5G modem for connected devices like cars and drones. And during last week the company announced that they have successfully partnered with Microsoft, Lenovo, Dell, and HP to install Intel’s 5G model in their upcoming laptops by late 2019.
Global chipset brand Qualcomm announced its own speedy Snapdragon X24 chip earlier this month which will help people to upgrade from LTE network to a new era of the fast system.
With these announcements and launches, it seems like the time of 5G network connectivity is very close. Tech device makers and network provider have already started working the upgrade to this 5G network connectivity. And with this much momentum, we will surely go to have trail over the 5G network by the end of the passing year.
