Huawei smartphones will offer 5G support
Everything ingenious is simple - release a case with support for 5G and eSIM
Due to the sanctions, Huawei is deprived of the ability to produce smartphones with support for fifth-generation networks. It has the right to buy Qualcomm chips, but only without 5G. Naturally, this does not allow the company to fully compete with other manufacturers, even in China, where 5G networks are being actively developed. But there are no hopeless situations, and the story with Huawei confirms this.
A workaround was found - to offer owners of Huawei devices the opportunity to use fifth-generation networks. To do this, they will have to purchase a special case with a built-in 5G modem. True, at this stage, such an accessory is only available for Huawei P50 Pro, and in the future, new items from the Huawei Mate 50 series, as well as models of the Huawei Mate 40, Huawei Nova 9 and Nova 10 families already available on the market, will receive the same case.
The case is not made by Huawei, but by Soyealink. In addition to the 5G modem, an eSIM chip was built into the accessory. It connects to a smartphone via a USB Type-C port. The case weighs 52 grams and should be prepared for the fact that the thickness of the device dressed in it will increase by 3.2 mm. Alas, buying such an accessory is not a cheap pleasure. In China they ask for $120.
