In view of the recent roll-out of 5G network technology by UAE telecom operators rolling out with ZTE devices, Huawei will launch its 5G smartphone, the Huawei Mate 20 X (5G) in the UAE this July.
Supporting a wide range of patented 5G technologies, the device is expected to represent high-speed connectivity and performance. Huawei Mate 20 X (5G) - Huawei's first commercial 5G-enabled smartphone will see UAE users potentially switch on to the network to experience a new driver in data speeds.
Large-scale 5G rollout began in 2018 with the GCC countries currently in the 1st wave of 5G rollout. Huawei started developing its own 5G technology as early as 2009 and has since invested significant resources into developing 5G across its device, network and chipset offerings.
In 2017 and 2018, Huawei invested almost US$1.4 billion into 5G product development. As of June 2019, Huawei has won 46 commercial 5G contracts globally despite the ongoing political issues that have plagued the Chinese brand.
