At the 6th World Internet Conference, Zhao Ming, President of Honor delivered a keynote speech where he talked about 5G and the large-scale deployment of the SA network. He believes that 5G ultra-high network speed will be superimposed with ultra-low latency and large connection. Zhao Ming also said that the first Honor 5G phone will be released next month. This device will be the Honor V30 which supports NSA/SA dual networking.
By next year, there will be a large-scale deployment of 5G SA network. However, most of the 5G phones on the market today are 5G NSA mobile phones that only support “4G core + 5G base stations”. At present, only Huawei and Honor’s 5G mobile phones can support both SA and NSA networks. These devices can successfully access 5G network anywhere in China.
Honor has previously demonstrated the strength of Honor V30 at Huawei’s 5G lab. The Honor 5G phone will come with the Kirin 990 series chip. This chip comes with Huawei’s most advanced 5G technology and is the first to support both NSA/SA dual architecture and TDD/FDD. The Kirin 990 5G chip is a 5G SoC based on 7nm and EUV technology. It is the smallest 5G mobile phone chip solution in the industry. Since it has an in-built 5G baseband, it can realize 5G network without an external 5G chip.
