Huawei P40 Pro 5G SmartPhone Test

Before we get started, we should tell you can still install Google apps on the device, but that’s not really safe. But Huawei will have to go without Google in the long run anyway. Today we will have a test of this new Huawei 5G smartphone: Huawei P40 Pro.

These are not all specifications of the Huawei P40 Pro. On the Huawei official website, you can get more information about the Android smartphone.

 

Huawei P40 Pro design and feel

At the beginning of 2020, we was afraid that all flagship phones would get bigger, but Huawei hardly changed anything with the P40 Pro. It feels similar to the Huawei P30 Pro. That doesn’t mean it’s a particularly light and compact smartphone, but we find it a lot more comfortable than the latest new Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra.

The processing is of course clear again and the design is now a bit “rounder” because the glass on the back and front has also been bent at the top and bottom. Incidentally, the display was not bent there. But we have to say that the difference compared to the P30 Pro is not big and it feels very similar. We tested the P40 Pro in silver color, which is one of the most beautiful colors on the market. The camera hump is now a bit bigger, which unfortunately has a small disadvantage. The camera hump is not quite as wide, but just as high, thick and sharp-edged as the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. That could have been solved a little more comfortably for my taste.

Huawei P40 Pro Display

The display of Huawei P40 Pro made a very good impression in the first impression and we were also completely satisfied in the test. It doesn’t quite come close to the current Samsung panel with 120 Hz, but it’s not that far away either. FHD+ doesn’t bother too much, by the way, it is criticized in this price range.

The front camera is very good, but the hole is too wide. There is a front camera and an infrared sensor designed to optimize unlocking in poor light. Face unlock works great too, but it’s still a 2D scanner and not a 3D scanner. If you are already installing such a wide hole, then please use a camera that enables a 3D scan of the face.

But apart from that, we was very satisfied with the display, it delivers good colors and viewing angles, is pleasantly fast at 90 Hz and there is a thin bezel. It’s not the best OLED display on the market, but it’s good enough for a flagship in this price range, and luckily not bent as much as the Mate 30 Pro.

Huawei P40 Pro Camera

The highlight of the P series is the camera and that will also be the case in 2020. Huawei has improved the video quality and it still does not come close to Apple and Samsung, but it is no longer a weakness (like last year). In addition, there is finally 4K with 60 fps. The quality should be enough for most.

 

However, Huawei has put the focus back on the photos and there is now a new sensor with 50 megapixels. This sensor is damn good and takes extremely sharp pictures, even in poor lighting conditions without night mode.

The difference to the P30 Pro is not serious (which speaks for the P30 pro), but the P40 Pro has made another leap. The pictures with 5x zoom are also very passable.

Too bad that the 10x optical zoom is only available in the Huawei P40 Pro+, that would have been a unique selling point. The 10x hybrid zoom is also good. The 5x zoom of the Huawei P40 Pro is frankly a bit too much.

 

The front camera takes very good pictures, as we have already mentioned and the ultra-wide shots can also convince. With portrait photos, the Huawei P40 Pro recognizes the outlines very well thanks to the ToF sensor, but we also found in the test that the object in focus often looked a little blurred. Huawei would have to add a software update.

Huawei has installed one of the best cameras on the market and shows that Samsung cannot deliver better pictures with twice as many megapixels. We think the sensor from Huawei is clearly better.

Huawei P40 Pro Battery

The Huawei P40 Pro offers excellent battery life. The competition has now built bigger batteries in their flagships, but Huawei gets more out of the 4200 mAh than Samsung out of 5000 mAh. The P40 Pro is again a long-distance runner, despite the 90 Hz, which drain the battery a little faster.

 

Nothing has changed with fast charging, as in 2019 there is the option for up to 40 watts, which is easily enough. It charges wirelessly with up to 27 watts, which is also enough. The Plus model, which comes in June, offers Qi with up to 40 watts and is the current leader on the market.

Huawei has of course given the P40 Pro reverse charging again, so you can also charge other Qi models wirelessly on the back of the P40 Pro.

 

Huawei P40 Pro Software

Over the past few years, we have gradually become warm with EMUI and EMUI 10.1 is also a step forward.. In addition, the performance is right, because the Huawei P40 Pro is very fast, there is nothing to complain about.

But you know what is coming: The Google services are missing. No Google Play Store, no YouTube app, no Google Pay, no banking app in the AppGallery, no Android Auto, everything is missing. Some apps can be found through other stores or downloaded APK files, but to be honest it is tedious. Those who rely on Google and Co. will not be happy with the P40 Pro.

 

We tried to get the best out of it, but that’s not enough. You don’t just have to look for some apps somewhere on the web, you also have to check for updates and install them manually. And if there is a deal like Monument Valley 2, then you are unlucky with the Huawei P40 Pro.

 

 

 

This didn’t bother me so much with the Huawei Mate 30 Pro, and the Huawei Mate Xs which is a smartphone for a very small target group. With Google apps, that would have been an excellent flagship.

 

Huawei P40 Pro Conclusion

In summary, the Huawei P40 Pro has the best hardware on the market. It hasn’t gotten bigger, it has a great display, it has an excellent camera, and it still has a good battery life and almost everything else you would expect in an Android flagship.

However, for many users, you couldn’t use it in everyday life without Google apps. Only those who can completely do without Google apps and the selection of the Play Store can access here without hesitation.

 

 

If it weren’t for the problems with the US government, the Huawei P40 Pro would again be one of the best Android smartphones on the market. But the software is decisive in the end and if you don’t want to collect APKs and do without things like mobile payments via Google Pay, this is unfortunately wrong.

 

The Huawei P40 Pro with Google services would be a very clear purchase recommendation, but without it things look a bit different. Other 5G smartphones are not much worse (or sometimes better). The P40 Pro is going to have a hard time of it in 2020.

Huawei P40 Series Officially Launched

Yesterday, Huawei introduced the new P40 series to the public, but not as planned in Paris, but at a purely online event. The Lite models have already been shown; today the top models have been presented, which includes three models: Huawei P40, Huawei P40 Pro, Huawei P40 Pro+.

As the first new 5G cell phone from Huawei in 2020, Huawei P40 series phones will be the new flagship in the first half of the year. The price of the new flagship phone is not yet known. Huawei accept pre-order now till April 8. And Huawei will start shipping order from April 11. For pre-orders, there is also a Huawei Watch GT2e and Freebuds 3.

 

Anyone who has followed this new Huawei 5G phone in the last few weeks will already know the data, but if you are one of those who like to be surprised, then we have an overview with the most important specifications of the Huawei P40 series:

Huawei E5576 Mobile WiFi 3s Test

The Huawei Mobile WiFi 3s has recently become a very affordable mobile LTE router in European countries. The Huawei MiFi 3S, which is also marketed under the model name Huawei E5576-320, can be used with all SIM cards.

Of course, you shouldn’t expect high-end equipment at the very reasonable price. For example, there is no display on the front – this is often standard for more expensive 4G LTE hotspots. For this, the Huawei E5576 is very small and handy and can be perfectly carried in your pocket or in your backpack.

 

The Huawei E5576 is made entirely of plastic and available in black and white. In addition to the device itself, the scope of delivery also includes an approximately ten centimeter long USB to micro-USB cable, a 1,500 mAh battery, a quick start guide and a warranty card. There is no need for a power pack to charge the battery, but you can use any existing USB power pack.

 

Good first impression

The Huawei E5576 Mobile WiFi 3s hotspot makes a good first impression. The material used feels good and the button for switching on and off on the top has a good pressure point. The back can be easily removed to insert the SIM card (Mini-SIM format, 2FF) and the battery.

 

 

 

At first glance, it is negative that Huawei has not installed any connections for an external cellular antenna and continues to rely on the micro USB standard. USB Type C would have been appropriate here in 2020.

 

Unlimited SIM cards from Telekom and O2 were used for the test. Unfortunately, the performance in the LTE network via WLAN was very poor. Tested with several end devices, the speed rarely exceeded 20 Mbit/s. In the peak, about 23 Mbit/s in the downlink and about 33 Mbit/s in the uplink could be reached via WLAN.

 

 

LTE Modem In the Test

The speeds were significantly better when the Huawei E5576 was connected via USB. Well over 100 Mbit/s in the downlink and almost 50 Mbit/s in the uplink were possible. These measurement results show that the modem can deliver high speeds, but the bottleneck is to be found in the weak WLAN module. In comparison with an expensive high-end LTE hotspot such as the Huawei E5788 and Netgear Nighthawk M2, it also shows that the LTE network can do much more than the small Huawei E5576 gets out of the connection.

 

 

The minimum latency (ping) was always well below 20 milliseconds – the small Huawei E5576 hotspot is in no way inferior to much more expensive end devices.

 

 

 

The Huawei E5576 can be used in almost every UMTS and LTE network in Europe, since all important frequency ranges are supported. Incidentally, the modem is not capable of 2G / GSM, which, given the now very good LTE networks, is no longer tragic. The following frequency ranges are supported in detail:

  • 4G / LTE: B1, B3, B7, B8, B20, B28
  • 3G / UMTS: B1, B8

 

On other continents such as Asia, North America or South America, you have to be prepared for the fact that many LTE networks cannot be used or can only be used to a very limited extent. The Huawei E5576 does not support the frequency bands required for this.

 

WLAN in the test

The WLAN module of the Huawei E5576 Mobile WiFi 3s works exclusively in the frequency range around 2.4 GHz and can supply up to 16 devices with a WLAN connection at the same time. The WLAN name and password can of course be assigned individually.

 

 

Unfortunately, the WLAN module did not do well in the test. The connection was always stable, but as described in the LTE modem test, it was relatively slow. Often, only 73 Mbit/s gross data rate was displayed on the MacBook. The speed is sufficient for normal surfing and video streaming, but the maximum LTE speed of 150 Mbit/s cannot be reached via WLAN. The range was also quite short, there shouldn’t be more than one wall between the Huawei E5576 and the end device.

 

 

 

For example, the channel bandwidth can be set via the advanced WLAN settings. There is also the option of setting up an automatic standby mode for the WLAN network when no devices are connected. This helps to save energy.

 

 

It is easy to set up a second SSID (guest access). The name, the password and the desired duration for the guest access can be set individually. Huawei offers the options unlimited, 1 day and 4 hours for the duration of guest access.

 

 

The WiFi extender is a very interesting function. This means that you can use a different WiFi network than Internet access, for example in a hotel, at a campsite or on the train. This helps to save mobile data volume. There is no noticeable difference for the devices connected to the Huawei E5576, because the WLAN network of the E5576 will of course remain as usual. The WLAN extender is configured either via the web interface or via an app.

 

 

Operation and software

The Huawei E5576-320 LTE router can be operated either via the Huawei Smart Home app (for Android and iOS) or via the browser web interface. Right from the first setup, the software offers to change the WiFi password and admin password. Huawei has noted the standard WLAN password both under the battery cover and in the battery compartment.

 

 

Since there is no display for operation directly on the device, you have to rely on the corresponding LEDs on the front. These shine in different colors depending on the condition of the battery or depending on the reception and are easy to read. Green LEDs indicate good condition, yellow LEDs indicate poor reception or a weak battery.

 

 

Both the web interface and the Huawei Smart Home app offer an attractive, functional design and are easy to use. The web interface can be called up with a device connected to the router via the IP address 192.168.8.1 in the browser. If you use the app, you do not need to enter the IP address. The app is sufficient for most settings, only a few menu items can only be accessed via the web interface, such as the 3G-only mode.

 

The software of the Huawei mobile WiFi router can be updated via the web interface. If an update is available, the router automatically reports via the web interface.

 

 

 

Battery for up to 6 hours of operation

 

The battery has a capacity of 1,500 mAh and can be changed by the user without any problems – quite a special feature in today’s world. The operating time is specified by Huawei as about 6 hours, this value was confirmed in the test. Depending on the number of connected devices, the operating time may decrease somewhat, but if necessary you can simply buy a replacement battery and thus extend the runtime.

 

 

 

Charging the battery takes about an hour in the test. Operation without an inserted battery, i.e. only via USB power supply, was not possible in the test. The two LEDs flashed red.

 

 

Conclusion: good and cheap

The Huawei E5576 Mobile WiFi 3s is one of the cheapest mobile LTE routers. At the cheap price you get a reasonable performance. The well-designed software and simple operation were particularly convincing. The compact design and the removable battery are also positive.

 

 

You have to cut back on the weak WLAN performance and the comparatively slow LTE modem. You also have to do without comfort functions such as a display, connections for an external antenna or a memory card. If you don’t mind, the Huawei E5576 Mobile WiFi 3s is an LTE hotspot with a good price-performance ratio, which is suitable for normal surfing, checking e-mails and also for occasional video streaming.

Huawei 4G Router 3 Pro B535 Test

The new router Huawei 4G Router 3 Pro (Huawei B535-232) was available in European countries for a few months, which is integrated LTE Cat7 modem and allows speeds of up to 300 Mbit/s in the downlink. As we introducted before, Huawei B535 router has many predecessor such as the Huawei B618 or the Huawei B818, which can provide much faster link speeds, but they also cost a lot more expensive than Huawei B535.

Like other Huawei 4G WiFi routers, the Huawei B535 LTE router is packed in a simple cardboard box. In addition to the router with the model number B535-232, you will also find a power supply unit (output: 12V, 1A) and a stand dock. A multilingual quick start guide and a warranty card are also included.

 

If you already had a few LTE routers in hand, the first thing you notice about the Huawei B535 is the comparatively flat design. The body of Huawei 4G Router 3 Pro is made of gray and white plasti and visually unobtrusive. Various LEDs are located on the front, which indicate the operating status. For example, the reception strength is signaled using five bars. There are also LEDs for power, internet, WLAN and LAN.

There are two buttons for power and WPS on the top. These have a clear pressure point. All connections are on the back of the Huawei B535 4G Router 3 Pro. There are four Gigabit LAN connections, a connection for the power supply, a reset button and two SMA connections under one cover for an external cellular antenna. The Huawei B535 does not offer support for USB devices or telephone.

 

 

Huawei 4G Router 3 Pro Specifications

In theory, the modem of the Huawei B535 LTE router can reach speeds of up to 300 Mbit/s in the downlink and up to 100 Mbit/s in the uplink (LTE Cat7). Almost all frequency bands important for Europe are supported, as the following list shows. Only the band 32 (1,500 MHz) cannot be used by the router, but there are no restrictions. Huawei does not provide any information about the possible CA combinations.

  • 4G/LTE Band: B1, B3, B7, B8, B20, B28
  • 3G / UMTS: B1, B8

 

2G GSM network is not supported. In view of the now very good LTE network expansion, this is surely not be a good problem for most users.

 

In terms of LTE speeds, the Huawei B535 was able to convince in the test. Although the device was tested in the test with unlimited SIM cards from Vodafone, it was far from the theoretical maximum, but with well over 150 Mbit/s in the downlink and up to 70 Mbit/s in the uplink, you can do a good life. We also take a comparison test with the Netgear Nighthawk M2 Router and it shows that the network theoretically enables even higher speeds.

 

 

The latency was usually well below 30 milliseconds, and the peak was even less than 20 milliseconds. The reception and transmission power was very good in the test (LTE B3, B7, B20).

The Huawei B535 4G Router 3 Pro also offers the option of connecting an external cellular antenna. The effect of a 4G LTE outdoor antenna was not tested separately in the test. If the external antenna is not automatically recognized, you can manually switch to the external antenna in the web interface.

 

Fast dual band WiFi

So that the maximum LTE speed also reaches the connected end devices, a fast WLAN module is of course required. The Huawei B535 supports WLAN ac at 2.4 GHz with up to 300 Mbit/s and at 5 GHz with up to 867 Mbit/s. In the test, the 867 Mbit/s could also be reached up to 5 meters by line of sight.

As soon as a wall came between the router and the end device, the data rate dropped noticeably. Fast surfing and video streaming was also about 10 meters away from the router and was still possible without problems after two walls. The Wi-Fi range of the Huawei B535 was convincing in the test!

 

The Huawei B535 can simultaneously supply a maximum of 64 end devices with a WLAN connection. The WLAN name can be set separately for 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz, so as the password. There is also the option of setting up a guest WLAN. The guest WLAN can either run indefinitely or be automatically switched off after one or four hours.

The Huawei B535 does not have a WLAN extender function, i.e. the use of an existing WLAN as Internet access. There is also no WLAN timer.

 

Gigabit LAN and WAN function

The four RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet LAN connections on the back allow the connection of devices such as computers, televisions or games consoles via cable. The connections worked smoothly in the test.

 

If desired, the LAN 4 connection can also be used as a WAN connection. This means that the internal cellular modem is switched off and the Internet connection is processed via an existing LAN connection. Of course, this is particularly useful if you only occasionally use the Huawei B535 as an LTE router. For the rest of the time, the device then functions as a normal WLAN access point.

 

Software and operation

To set up and configure the Huawei B535 4G Router 3 Pro, you can either use the Huawei Smart Home app (available for Android and iOS) or the browser web interface. Both the app and the web interface have a modern, functional and clearly structured design and are easy to use.

 

 

In addition to the usual settings for WLAN and network, which were mentioned in the test, there are also some more special functions. These include, for example, the VPN function, the bridge mode and the dynamic DNS function. There is also the option of filtering IP addresses or domains.

 

In addition to an SMS function, there is also a statistics function with which the data volume used and online time can be checked. There is also an easy-to-use parental control function, which can limit the usage time (separated by days and times) for individual devices, for example.

 

Unfortunately, neither the app nor the web interface offer the option of displaying detailed information about the Internet connection, such as the frequency band used, the antenna technology used or the CA status. There are also no such settings, for example to set the router to a specific frequency band. The LTE router models from AVM, for example the FRITZ! Box 6820 LTE offers significantly better equipment in this area. After all, there is the possibility to use “only 3G” or “only 4G”. The Huawei B535 does not support GSM / 2G anyway. 

 

Test conclusion: good performance at a low price

The Huawei B535-232 4G Router 3 Pro left a very good impression in the test. The design of hardware and software is simple and functional, operation via app and web interface is simple and well thought out. In places, however, more information and setting options would be desirable.

 

 

The connection speeds via LTE and WLAN are good, and the many RJ45 Ethernet LAN connections are commendable. You have to do without a telephone system and a USB connection, but Huawei has installed connections for an external LTE antenna. If you can live with the few functions described, the Huawei B535 is a very good LTE router at a fair price.

 

Huawei Launches Wi-Fi AX3 Router With Gigahome Quad-Core and Wi-Fi 6+

A couple of days ago, Huawei unveils its WiFi AX3 series WiFi Router, which includes The new WiFi AX3 series includes two variant models: Huawei WiFi AX3 (Dual-core) and WiFi AX3 (Quad-core). The AX3 series router supports Wi-Fi 6 and demonstrates Huawei’s cutting edge technology and 5G – with a prominent role in the development of Wi-Fi 6 standards. With its technology, Huawei has facilitated seamless collaboration between routers and other chip-level devices. It delivers powerful Wi-Fi 6+ connectivity when used with Huawei devices.

Huawei WiFi AX3 (Duad-core)

As the connecting hub for Huawei’s revolutionary 1 + 8 + N all-scenario smart life strategy, the HUAWEI WiFi AX3 runs on the Huawei Harmony operating system, and features financial-level HUAWEI HomeSec TM security safeguards, providing users with an intuitive, lightning- fast, stable, and secure Wi-Fi 6 connection at all times.

Huawei WiFi AX3 (Duad-core)

HUAWEI Wi-Fi 6+: Breaking down barriers with dynamic narrow bandwidth

HUAWEI WiFi AX3 series routers come equipped with Huawei’s exclusive Gigahome processor and Gigahome Wi-Fi 6 chipset. With the Wi-Fi 6 standards as the basis, Huawei has incorporated multi-chip collaborative technology, so as to ensure that the HUAWEI WiFi AX3 offers “Wi-Fi 6+” at a doubled network speed, alongside enhanced wall penetration capabilities, when used with other Huawei Wi-Fi 6 devices.

Huawei WiFi AX3 (Duad-core)

The Gigahome Wi-Fi 6 chipset made this solution possible, by improving the frequency bandwidth up to 160 MHz, as well as realizing on-demand automatic packet fragmentation in narrow-band mode via dynamic narrow-band technology. This has the effect of stabilizing the working brand frequency bandwidth at 2 MHz, for a wall-penetrating network signal that does not stall. Or simply put, users can enjoy faster network near the device, and more stable connections from further distances away.

Huawei WiFi AX3 (Duad-core)

The quad-core version of the HUAWEI WiFi AX3 series also provides support for Huawei Share. Simply by tapping an unlocked Android phone with NFC enabled against the router’s NFC detection area, users can connect directly to the Wi-Fi network without having to enter a password. This feature is particularly handy for catering to house guests, or hotel and restaurant patrons, saving them the time, hassle, and awkwardness associated with asking for and entering a complicated password.

In addition to the exclusive dynamic narrow-band technology, the quad-core version packs four independent signal amplifiers (two for the dual-core version), enabling Mesh networking for multiple Huawei routers, and supporting wireless, wired, and hybrid wireless + wired networking modes that expand network access to every nook and cranny in a household or business.

Huawei WiFi AX3 (Duad-core)

The HUAWEI WiFi AX3 Pro is the first home router to run on Huawei’s proprietary Harmony operating system. Taking the factors that slow down wireless network speed into account, it optimizes the routing system from the app layer, driver layer, and kernel layer, and establishes a two-year aging test model to ensure its long-term stability.

The HUAWEI WiFi AX3 quad-core version also incorporates HUAWEI HomeSec TM security protections. An independent security zone (TEE-trusted execution environment) has been built into the Gigahome quad-core chip, and the TrustZone security solution has been constructed from the microkernel for Harmony OS. This solution has obtained the Evaluation Assurance Level-5 (EAL5) certification from Common Criteria, a globally recognized IT product certification organization, further attesting to the product’s financial-level security safeguards.

Huawei’s commitment to eliminating network lag in the Wi-Fi 6 era

Because of its deep understanding of 5G technologies, Huawei has become a major contributor to the Wi-Fi 6 standard. Huawei experts have chaired five Wi-Fi standard working groups, for example, Dr. Osama Aboul-Magd, is the chairman of the Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) standard working group. Additionally, Huawei has submitted 240 new Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) proposals, accounting for 15% of all proposals, which is more than any other device manufacturer. Huawei has also introduced many advanced 5G technologies into Wi-Fi 6.

Thanks to its long-term investment in Wi-Fi 6, Huawei not only offers products that support the Wi-Fi 6 standards, but also integrates unique chip collaboration technologies using its self-developed Gigahome Wi-Fi chips. This enables a range of Huawei Wi-Fi 6 devices to deliver an optimal user experience.

Huawei Released a New 5G Router – 5G CPE Pro 2

A couple of days ago, Huawei launched Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 – the next generation of smart router in the 5G Series Huawei CPE Pro. The new router supports a variety of 5G frequency bands, which is more than any other similar 5G router on the market. The router offers innovative 5G Super Uplink technology and Wi-Fi 6 standard and has been designed with a compact design that is 30 percent smaller than its predecessors Huawei 5G CPE Pro. The unit’s features are a breakthrough for the market and are expected to have further impact on, for example, mobile broadband, HD live broadcasting, video conferencing and telemedicine.

Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 Specifications

The HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro 2 carries the cutting-edge 7 nm Balong 5000 chipset that comes with dramatically enhanced capabilities, and offers support for both 5G NSA and 5G SA networking. The Balong 5000 is the first chipset in its series to support 200 MHz bandwidth and carrier aggregation technology, doubling theoretical 5G peak download speed over that on the first-gen CPE Pro, to a staggering 3.6 Gbps.

In addition to inheriting the four 5G TDD frequency bands (n41 / n77 / n78 / n79) which are already supported by the first-gen CPE Pro, the Huawei CPE Pro 2 has added support for seven more 5G FDD frequency bands (n1 / n3 / N5 / N7 / N28 / N38 / N40). This expanded range transcends the capabilities of other 5G devices, fully meeting the needs of global operators.

Up to this point, 5G coverage has been hampered by an inherent flaw. Although the TDD bands provide for fast connections, their coverage area is rather small. Conversely, FDD bands feature broad coverage, but low bandwidth and thus limited speeds. As a remedy, Huawei has developed its “5G Super Uplink” technology. 5G Super Uplink fully leverages the advantages of TDD and FDD, which are complementary to each other in high and low frequencies, as well as time and frequency domains, boosting uplink speed and coverage to new and unforeseen heights. Therefore, services that are highly dependent on uplink performance, such as HD live broadcasting, telemedicine, and video conferencing, are expected to receive a shot in the arm with the widespread rollout of 5G Super Uplink technology.

Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 – Supporting WiFi-6+ technology

The HUAWEI 5G CPE is fully compliant with the latest Wi-Fi 6 standard, which is tailored to facilitate optimal 5G high coverage. The HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro 2 is capable of connecting with up to 128 devices, and supports MU-MIMO technology and concurrent transmission with multiple devices, as well as exclusive dynamic narrow bandwidth technology that can bolster a Wi-Fi 6-supported Huawei mobile phone with scorching data speeds and broadened Wi-Fi coverage.

 

The HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro 2, which is one third smaller than its predecessor, adopts new silent cooling fans that are capable of dynamically adjusting their operating speed to account for the current temperature. Running at just 30 dB, 10 dB lower than the normal ambient noise level, fans are far quieter as well, while improving cooling efficiency by 50 per cent and reducing the router’s surface temperature by 5 ° C. Reinforced by an effortlessly efficient heat dissipation system, the HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro 2 is equipped to handle the high loads associated with continuous 5G operation.

Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 Price and availability

Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 will be available on the market later this spring. Regarding the retail price of Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2, Huawei didn’t announce in the debut. We will update the price once it’s available to buy.

Innovation in both hardware and software for the future

During the past decade, Huawei has developed and refined the ecosystem “1 + 8 + N”. The system is based on the idea that the mobile phone is in focus surrounded by a number of accessories such as tablets, smart watches and laptops offered in Huawei’s own range. The accessories in turn are put in the context of “N” which stands for smart homes, mobile offices and the like. The system is supported by the Huawei Share and Huawei HiLink features, which bridges all devices to create a unified and holistic user experience. In addition to creating innovation in hardware, Huawei continues to develop the Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) ecosystem, which is available to consumers through Huawei AppGallery.

With a scenario-independent hardware and a software platform that works in balance, Huawei delivers a high-quality user experience. Information is seamlessly shared between the user’s connected devices, in all scenarios.

Introduces Huawei AppGallery

HMS Core is a collection of tools for Huawei’s partners and app developers to create unique and new user experiences in all of Huawei’s hardware and software products. Developers can quickly deploy Huawei’s on-device features such as HiAI, distributed technology and camera features into their apps, by integrating HMS with HMS Core 4.0

“To build and refine an aviation ecosystem that supports Huawei products going forward, the chip-device-cloud capabilities are gradually being opened up to developers globally, through HMS. The ecosystem is a key component of Huawei’s seamless scenario-independent AI Life strategy, as it encompasses scenario-independent functions, global distribution, and life cycle management capabilities. The HSE system will be a powerful pillar for our units”, says Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group.

For example, Cewe, Europe’s largest photo printing company, uses Huawei’s Share Kit to streamline the device pairing process. The printing process becomes intuitive, enabling faster production.

Huawei AppGallery also offers Quick Apps. Quick Apps is an innovative category created for devices in the 5G era. Quick Apps are developed based on industry standards, require no installation and use minimal system space. Users can easily click on the apps to use them, just like traditional apps. Already, over 1700 QuickApps are available in AppGallery and are a rapidly growing category.

In addition to creating their own apps, Huawei also collaborates actively with popular quality apps to ensure the user experience. In addition, Huawei has created a security and protection system to protect its users. The system includes verification of developers’ names, a four-step review process, download and installation protections and preventative measures. Today, with nine years of app development on the neck, Huawei AppGallery is one of the world’s top three marketplaces for apps.

“In the future, we will continue to expand our app ecosystem in Huawei AppGallery, hoping to not only offer a secure and reliable platform, but also to give our users greater choice. The continued success of our successful ecosystem will remain one of our top priorities”, says Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group.

Samsung Galaxy S20 S20+ and S20 Ultra Smartphone Released

In the past few days there have been numerous leaks regarding the upcoming Galaxy new series from Samsung and, as expected, the press photos have now landed on the net. As you may guess, the Samsung Galaxy S20 series is about to be launched.

Let’s start with the most exciting model of all, the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. That will be available in Cosmic Gray and Cosmic Black (maybe ceramic?) And it starts at 1349 euros with 128 GB of memory. If you want 512 GB, you have to put 1549 euros on the table.

 

It continues with the Samsung Galaxy S20, which will come in Cosmic Gray, Cloud Blue and Cloud Pink (there are no pictures here yet). The 4G version costs 899 euro and who wants 5G, the price is around 999 Euro. Incidentally, the S20 Ultra is only available with 5G, so we only have one price.

The last one is the Samsung Galaxy S20+, which comes in Cosmic Black, Cosmic Gray and Cloud Blue. That costs 1099 euros with 5G, but there is no question of 4G. Maybe there is only 5G, let’s see.

 

So, as expected, it will not be cheap, although you can always deduct a few euros from Samsung if you wait a short time. I’m also pretty sure that there will be some promotions at the market launch, free Galaxy Buds or something like that should be the case again in 2020.

 

Samsung Galaxy S20 Series Prices Predication

 

While the Plus and Standard predecessors developed quite similarly in the first month after the start of sales with four and 4.5 percent, the Plus models were somewhat more stable afterwards.

 

After three months, the S8, S9 and S10 were on average 26 percent below the starting price. Galaxy S8+, S9+ and S10+ were “just” 19 percent cheaper. Depending on how expensive the devices are at the start, this amount is to around 200 to 250 euros for the new S20 series.

 

The Galaxy S20 could be 30 percent cheaper after just four months (€275), the Galaxy S20+ and S20 Ultra will break the 30 percent mark after just over five months. Then they already cost 320 and even 400 euros less, if the price developments behave similarly to the predecessors.
