Samsung Galaxy S9 Will be Launched on February 2018

Samsung will introduce the Galaxy S9 on February 25, 2018 ahead of the MWC in Barcelona. The successor to the Samsung Galaxy S8 will probably have a much improved camera installed, it suggests “The Camera. Reimaged!” on the invitation at least the saying. For the first time since the Galaxy S6, Samsung is using the Mobile World Congress to introduce a flagship S-Series smartphone. Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S8 were then presented a few weeks after the important mobile phone trade fair.

Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus

Publicly, there are still no indications of the appearance and technical features of the Samsung Galaxy S9, but the rumors generally assume that this year there will again be two different sizes of the flagship model: the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9 Plus. Both models are to get a better camera with faster autofocus, the plus model comes probably in addition with a second lens (dual-camera system). The case design is unlikely to change in comparison to the Galaxy S8, but Samsung has probably reconsidered the much-criticized positioning of the fingerprint scanner.

 

In addition to an improved camera you may of course expect an updated chipset, ie there will be a new Exynos processor including a new LTE modem. 5G will not dominate the Samsung Galaxy S9, but the technology is not yet mature enough. According to an alleged packaging for the Galaxy S9, which has recently surfaced , the device will be equipped with 64 GB of internal memory.

 

Mobile World Congress 2018

The Mobile World Congress is the world’s largest mobile phone trade show and takes place in Barcelona at the end of February each year. This year the fair starts on the 26th of February and ends on the 1st of March. In addition to Samsung, many other mobile phone manufacturers will hold press conferences and introduce new devices. Usually, in addition to new smartphones, but above all, details on new network technology, the subject of 5G will certainly be back on the agenda and even with the current generation of mobile radio LTE, the final stage is far from reached.

 

We will keep focus on the news about the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus and update the information on www.4gltemall.com/blog.

 

Huawei B2368 LTE Cat.12 Router Released

LTE routers with connections for an external mobile antenna are plentiful. An external antenna with the LTE router may have advantages, but a long cable between the antenna and the router can cause poor data rates. Huawei has now shown an interesting device Huawei B2368 LTE router-modem combination, which should solve this problem. The LTE modem is located directly in the external antenna and is accordingly mounted outdoors. The router with WLAN, RJ45 Ethernet LAN connections and telephone connection, however, is positioned in the house at a convenient location. The power supply of the modem is regulated via Power over Ethernet (PoE). Theoretically, the combination is also ideally suited for the next generation of mobile communications 5G.

The advantage of the separation of router and modem is obvious: the modem and antenna can be positioned in a place outside with very good wireless reception, the router with WLAN function, however, ideally positioned in the house so that all devices got a good internet connection. A separate power supply from the antenna and modem is not necessary; it is only a LAN cable between the two devices to be laid. Even a complicated alignment of the antenna is not necessary, because it is not a directional antenna. Operation without direct line of sight to the transmitting mast is possible.

 

LTE Category 12 router

The modem of the Huawei B2368 allows speeds of up to 600 Mbit/s in the downlink and up to 150 Mbit/s in the uplink – depending on the network technology used and the network expansion of the mobile service provider used. In addition to the FDD LTE, which is primarily used in Europe, TDD LTE is also supported. The B2368 may use the frequency bands 38, 40, 41, 42, 43, 1, 3, 7, 8 and 20. The integrated WLAN module operates both in the frequency range around 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz, a telephone function is also available.

 

Ideal for 5G mobile communications

According to Huawei, it is also conceivable that there will be a later 5G capable version. Here, the design would be quite useful, because the frequency range around 3.5 GHz, which is to be used at the beginning for 5G , penetrates even worse in buildings than the previously used at LTE frequency bands. The data rates should be much higher with the B2368 modem-router combination than with a router that is hidden behind several building walls.

 

Availability

According to Huawei, the B2368 LTE CPE is not yet available and a market launch is not planned for the time being. At the 2017 Global Mobile Broadband Forum in London, particular mention was made of Eastern Europe as an interesting market for the Huawei B2368.

 

Huawei B2338 Outdoor LTE CPE

In regions with poor LTE reception, if you wanted to use LTE as a DSL replacement, you had to rely on a combination of an LTE router and an external mobile antenna. The Chinese network specialist Huawei now offers the new LTE outdoor CPE B2338, an interesting combination of LTE modem, external antenna and router unit, which promises significantly better performance in poorly served regions. Technically, there is a strong similarity to the recently introduced on Huawei B2368, but the B2338 has a directional antenna instead of an Omni-directional antenna.

LTE modem with directional antenna

The Huawei B2338 consists of two parts: there is an outdoor mobile phone antenna with integrated LTE modem and a router unit with wireless and external device connections. The mobile antenna is mounted outside of the building and should ideally be aligned directly with the cell towers. Wind and weather can not affect the technology if installed correctly.

 

The Huawei B2338 CPE supports LTE Cat12 in the downlink and LTE Cat13 in the uplink, ie depending on the network up to 600 MBit/s in the download and up to 150 MBit/s in the uplink can be achieved. In addition, the outdoor LTE CPE supports not only FDD LTE, but also TDD LTE and can use up to 4 × 4 MIMO antenna technology, depending on the operating mode. Various LTE frequency bands are supported, including the bands B1, B3, B7 and B20, which are common in Europe and Aisa.

 

The advantage of the modem is the integrated directional antenna, which can not cause losses due to an antenna cable that is too long. The gain of the antenna is at 9 dBi in the 3.5 GHz range according to Huawei.

 

The power supply and the connection to the router unit are via RJ45 Ethernet LAN cable (Power over Ethernet, PoE). The SIM card is plugged directly into the antenna unit, and you will also find some small LEDs on the bottom, which indicates the operating status.

 

Router with PoE function

In addition to the modem-antenna combination, the router unit is the second important part of the Huawei B2338. The small box has an integrated WLAN radio module, so ideally it should be positioned in the house where most WLAN users are expected. The WLAN works on 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz and supports the standards 802.11b/g/n/ac. On the back there is a WPS button for fast and secure Wi-Fi encryption. You will also find on the back of the connection for the power supply and a small toggle switch for switching on and off the device. On the front, various LEDs signal the device status.

The Huawei B2338 has two RJ45 Gigabit LAN ports for connecting computers and other network devices. A third RJ45 LAN port is equipped with PoE function, so has an integrated power supply. This port is for connection to the modem or external antenna.

 

Telephone function and possible applications

In addition to two RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet ports, the Huawei B2338 also offers two RJ11 phone ports to which analog telephones or fax machines can be connected. This makes the B2338 Modem Router combination ideal for a remote office or home office. It would be conceivable, for example, the use of the device in a mountain hut or in a national park office, where you cannot get on with ordinary LTE router technology. In general, the B2338 will probably be used more in the business customer area, because the antenna must be professionally mounted outdoors and aligned as well as possible – for most residential customers, this is too complicated without an experienced fitter.

 

Market launch and availability

In the market, the Huawei B2338 outdoor LTE CPE is currently not available, the market launch is uncertain. The main sales market, according to Huawei Product Manager in Europe, is mainly the sparsely populated eastern states. For example, T-Mobile in the Czech Republic offers the device. We will keep updating the news about Huawei B2338.

 

If you need similar LTE outdoor CPE, we have the Huawei B2268S LTE CPE now with almost same functions.

 

Huawei P Smart Mid-range Smartphone

Huawei will be launching a new mid-range smartphone with the P smart starting in February. The device has a 5.65-inch TFT LC display in 18: 9 format and has a metal body. There is a dual camera on the back and an 8 megapixel selfie camera on the front. According to Huawei, the new P smart is intended to address particularly young and financially conscious customers. So the price of P Smart would be very aggressive.

 

Technical specifications

A display in modern 18: 9 format can be found in the price range so far rather rare. It offers more usable screen area and less edge compared to a classic 16: 9 display – that makes the Huawei P smart interesting in any case. The resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels promises a very sharp presentation.

The operating system of the Huawei P smart is the currently most current Android version: Android 8 (Oreo) with the Huawei EMUI 8 user interface. The built-chipset comes from the Huawei subsidiary HiSilicon, it is a Kirin 659, the 3 gigabytes of memory are available. The internal user memory is 32 GB in size and can be expanded if necessary by MicroSD memory card. The battery is not changeable due to the unibody metal body and has a capacity of 3,000 mAh. The device is charged via a modern USB Type C connection.

Dual camera on the back

Like many current smartphones, the Huawei P smart uses a dual camera system on the back. The main camera has a resolution of 13 megapixels, the secondary camera delivers 2 megapixels and is mainly used to obtain information that allows a depth of field calculation. This should make the photos look more professional.

Available From February 2018

The Huawei P smart will be sold in Europe from February 2018 in the colors black, blue and gold. Here now, it only accept pre-order online from Huawei Germany, but we suppose it would be soon available in the market. And then we would take test on this middle class phone to check its performance.

Netgear MR1100 Nighthawk M1 Will be Available in Europe

The mobile LTE hotspot Netgear Nighthawk M1 will be available in Europe around a year after the official launch. According to information from the online magazine, the Netgear Nighthawk M1 with the model number MR1100 is expected to appear in March. So far, the router is available only for Telstra in Australia and AT&T in the US. With speeds of up to 1 Gbps over LTE Cat16, the Netgear Nighthawk M1 is one of the fastest mobile LTE routers available today.

For the first time, the Netgear Nighthawk M1 router was shown in February 2017 at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, ​​shortly after the device was available from Telstra in Australia. Regarding the market launch planned in Europe, it was not known. Currently, the Netgear flagship model the AirCard 810 hotspot with up to 600 MBit/s downlink is available in many European countries. At the CES electronics trade fair in Las Vegas, it’s said that the MR1100 Nighthawk M1 will be available in Germany in March 2018, and it’s probably without network operator branding and therefore without a SIM lock.

Netgear Nighthawk M1 MR1100 4GX Gigabit LTE Mobile Router

Although the mobile LTE hotspot is available in the market for more than one year, the equipment is still very competitive. Only the latest Huawei E5788 can come up with an equally fast LTE Cat16 modem (up to 1 GBit/s in the downlink). However, the Huawei device has significantly fewer interfaces than the Netgear router. The Netgear Nighthawk M1 features an RJ45 Ethernet LAN interface, a USB Type C port and a full-size USB port. The built-in Netgear battery provides 5040 mAh with a very large capacity and is about 24 hours of continuous operation. On the front there is a round touchscreen display for operation. The Wi-Fi wireless module in the Nighthawk M1 operates at both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. Which LTE frequency bands will support the MR1100 in Germany, is still unclear at the present time. We will update the information if we get more specs for the EU version Netgear Nighthawk M1.
