Honor to deliver 5G phone by end of 2019
Zhao Ming, Honor president, said a while back that the company plans on releasing a 5G phone by the end of the year. He confirmed this once again in an interview after the launch of the Honor 9X. An Honor 5G phone will come in Q4 2019.
The upcoming device has already entered testing and its development is coming to an end soon. Ming once again stated that 2019 will be the year 5G becomes mainstream in China. Honor plans to bring their own devices to the market to make full use of the next-generation network.
The upcoming phone will use Huawei’s own Balong 5000 5G modem. It’s capable of reaching 4.6 Gbps speeds on the main 5G frequency band and up to 6.5Gbps on the high-frequency band.
Ming stated the performance will be outstanding and that the design will set a new standard in phone manufacturing.
