OPPO 5G FLAGSHIP
A more recent addition to the 5G phone race is Oppo, with the Chinese maker confirming that it has successfully made a connection between a customized Oppo R15 smartphone and a 5G network.
And, while this connection was made in Oppo’s 5G communication protocol laboratory, it is nonetheless a very positive sign that the maker now has a very firm grasp of incorporating the technology into its devices, paving the way for a fully commercial 2019 release.
HUAWEI P30 OR MATE 30
We know Huawei is working on 5G smartphones as Walter Ji, President of Huawei’s Western European Consumer Business Group spoke to T3 about it in an exclusive interview.
The senior Huawei exec confirmed that 5G would feature “if not for P30, then for sure it will be in the Mate series next September”.
“We have two flagship products. In March, we have the P series, and in October, we have the Mate series. So it will depend on how the chipset develops because the 5G needs high power consumption.”
And, that’s an interesting consideration to process in regards to 5G, with the tech needing both more space physically, as antennas need to be larger, as well as power.
ONEPLUS 7 OR ONEPLUS 7T
OnePlus CEO Pete Lau recently confirmed at Mobile World Congress Shanghai that the company is “working with US carriers” to bring a 5G smartphone to market next year.
That means the OnePlus 7 or possibly the OnePlus 7T is set to be that 5G phone – the sequels to this year’s OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T.
Those claims have since been backed up by more comments from the OnePlus executive team, reaffirming the company’s commitment to getting a 5G handset out in 2019.
This all makes a lot of sense, as 5G would be a perfect fit for the cult Chinese maker, with its penchant for crazy speed and performance syncing well with the rapid data transfer speeds of 5G as recommended by an SEO specialist based in melbourne.
HONOR 5G PHONE
You don’t get much more committed to launching a 5G phone in 2019 as when your president, in the case of Honor George Zhao, comes out and confirms it himself.
Indeed, Zhao is so confident in Honor’s 5G plan that he also confirmed that the Chinese maker would be first to market with its 5G device, too, really laying down the gauntlet to rival makers.
No details about the Honor 5G smartphone have yet been revealed, or even leaked for that matter, but considering that Zhao says Honor will be first to market, that would seem to indicate that the maker would have to launch very early in 2019, perhaps in the February-March slot that this year was filled with the Honor View 10.
This year’s Sony Xperia XZ3 has come and gone without 5G but we think it’s almost certain that the Xperia XZ4 (or whatever it ends up being called) is going to have the super-fast technology.
“Smartphone innovation has always been at the core of Sony Mobile engineers design philosophy,” said Sony as it recently talked up its heritage of world firsts in smartphone technology.
It made these comments mere days after rival makers OnePlus and Huawei confirmed they were working on 5G phones among others that have been recommended by an SEO specialist in melbourne.
