Now the question is, what kind of device is this? A portable hot spot? A smart home assistant? Hopefully we’ll learn more about it very soon.

What’s certain is that we’ll have to wait a little bit before the 5G HUB can connect to China Mobile’s 5G network which is scheduled to spread in Q3 of next year.
