A few years back it was just 2G then the world moved to 3G, then 4G and now we are dreaming of 5G. The concept of 5G is in the oven and will get served very soon. The regular news and updates over 5G indicate that just a few moments are remaining for the first testing if 5G network. Network and smartphone companies have started working on upgrading their new launches with 5G connectivity. One more exciting news has come up now from Huawei.
As we all know that world’s most prominent tech event is going live in Barcelona, Spain. Huawei has recently announced its first 5G chip for mobile devices. The chip will allow company’s mobile devices to access the next generation of cellular networks, 5G.
The company revealed that its Huawei Balong 5G01 chipset would be the first one to support the new 3GPP standards of 5G networks and it will allow a user to download data at 2.3Gbps. Perhaps the chip will be equipped with hotspots only and not with phones due to its size.
Huawei CEO Richard Yu says that the company has invested more than $600 million in the network technology, which will help to upgrade the network technology in all aspects of self-driving cars to smart home devices. He added that Huawei would be the first company to serve an end-to-end 5G solution through its network, tools and chipset-level capabilities.
This would be a challenging announcement for other chip maker brand like Qualcomm and Intel. It was a year back when Intel announced its 5G modem for connected devices like cars and drones. Qualcomm is also in the race with its recently launched Snapdragon X24 chipset which was released earlier this month. Intel has recently been partnered with Microsoft, Dell, Hp, and Lenovo to install 5G modems om their laptops by late 2019. The concept of 5G will upgrade the level of connectivity from LTE to a higher level.
