Rumors released this week suggest that Huawei plans to launch a smartphone next year that supports the fifth generation of mobile networks, 5G. According to a Chinese insider, it is possible that the next line of Mate 60 or P60 handsets, both expected to be announced in 2023, will support the technology.
This month the Asian manufacturer made the models of the Mate 50 family official, but again the smartphones arrived without the possibility of using the 5G network due to trade sanctions imposed during the administration of Donald Trump, former president of the United States, and maintained in the regime of Joe Biden.
Because of this restriction, Huawei is looking for ways to circumvent the US blockade by implementing the feature in its flagships in the future. As Huawei’s rotating chairman, Xu Zhijun, said, the manufacturer’s mobile phone business is struggling as a result of limited chip usage.
This measure makes competing brands such as Samsung, Xiaomi and Apple stand out in market share by offering 5G-compatible devices, while Huawei remains prevented from using the network. Although there is this limitation, the brand invests in other tools for its devices, such as satellite connectivity, for example.
Little is known about the announcement, but a Chinese insider assures that the brand plans to make a 5G compatible smartphone official next year. More information should come soon.
