ZTE recently confirmed that its first 5G flagship, AXON 10 Pro 5G version, will be launched next month. Huawei’s Mate 20 X 5G and Mate X have passed 3C certification, and their listing date is getting closer. Although major mobile phone manufacturers are working on 5G, industry insiders say that this year’s 5G mobile phones will not have much growth.
Today, industry insiders on Weibo @Dev said that due to the impact of Huawei’s incident, the 5G mobile phone process was relatively sluggish. The Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 was originally planned to be shipped at the end of this year. At present, it may be postponed until 2020. The MediaTek 5G SoC was originally scheduled to be delivered to customers in Q3 this year and mass production at the end of the year. It is expected to wait until next March for mass production.
Also delayed are the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 series 5G SoC and Huawei mid-range 5G SoC, which is expected to wait until 2020 to enter the market. Leng Xi Dev said that from the perspective of the entire market, 5G mobile phones will not have much growth this year. At present, many manufacturers have lowered their 5G mobile phone shipment plans. It is estimated that the annual shipment will not exceed 4 million units.
