Not only the first 5G smartphone and the first 5G router were presented at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona this year, but also the first mobile 5G router was also shown. Huawei, known for many years for mobile hotspots, has already introduced the second mobile 5G router after the world’s first one Netgear Nighthawk M2 5G mobile router.
The “5G Mobile WiFi“, as Huawei calls its first mobile 5G hotspot, does not seem to have a model number yet, but visitors to the MWC can already view the device at the Huawei stand. Visually, the model looks very similar to the predecessor 4G mobile hotspot Huawei E5788, but the 5G Mobile WiFi is significantly larger. This is probably due to the integrated 8,000 mAh strong battery – the battery of the E5788 is not as strong as even half. The battery is charged via USB Type C, it is also possible to connect to the computer. Optionally, the large battery is also suitable as a power bank, devices such as smartphones can even be charged via wireless charging with the Huawei 5G Mobile WiFi.
The Huawei 5G Mobile WiFi is operated either via touch screen or via an app on the smartphone. As a 5G modem, a HiSilicon Balong 5000 chipset is used, an in-house development by Huawei. The Balong 5000 can also use 4G/LTE in addition to 5G. So the mobile hotspot is backwards compatible with older mobile networks, so that the connection does not break off when you change from the 5G radio cell into an LTE cell.
The Huawei 5G WiFi Router can use Wi-Fi at 2.4 and 5 gigahertz and supports not only the current WLAN 802.11ac standard (WLAN 5) but also the new WiFi 6 standard. How many devices can be supplied with Internet at the same time is not yet known. Huawei advertises that it is sufficient to scan a QR code to connect to the WLAN. If required, the QR code will be shown in the display of the device.
Further technical specifications about the Huawei 5G Mobile WiFi are not yet available. Also information about the price and availability of the mobile 5G router are not yet known. The first 5G networks are expected to go into operation in mid-2019, and we suppose then the Huawei 5G mobile WiFi would be available to use.
At the World Mobile Congress 2019 in Barcelona, HUAWEI unveiled a number of new products, including the updated flagship laptop HUAWEI MateBook X Pro, new laptops of HUAWEI MateBook 13 and HUAWEI MateBook 14, folding 5G-smartphone HUAWEI Mate X, Huawei 5G mobile WiFi and Huawei 5G CPE Pro based on the first serial multi-mode chipset Balong 5000.

Using the new Wi-Fi 6 technology, the HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro modem provides data rates of up to 4.8 Gbps. In addition, it is the world’s smallest consumer telecommunications device (CPE) and the world’s first 5G CPE device that supports HUAWEI HiLink protocols and translates smart homes into a 5G era.
In the coming 5G era, HUAWEI has the leading position and capabilities to implement its universal strategy. Now HUAWEI is the only manufacturer of the full range of 5G products, including chipsets, Edge-class networks and cloud services. Huawei intends to expand the capabilities of 5G communication in order to provide users with all the benefits of a truly universal “smart” life.
It’s obvious that the Huawei Mate X is the main role at the Barcelona event MWC2019. With the Mate X, Huawei also presented some 5G gadgets such as Huawei 5G CPE Pro and Huawei 5G Mobile WiFi Hotspot. Although they are not very spectacular, the useful line of innovations naturally attracts intentions at the event.
