Chinese three major carriers on November 1st officially switched on 5G services in the world’s largest market, though initial rollout is limited to key cities, as well as key areas in lower-tier cities, while coverage will be expanded in the coming months. the 5G plans start from as low as 128 yuan ($18) per month for those depending on your preferred carriers.
Ahead of today’s rollout, local smartphone brands including Huawei, Xiaomi, and ZTE already introduced several phone models over the past few months that can click to the 5G networks. Besides the Huawei Mate 30 5G, a check on one of the Carriers websites revealed that a number of 5G capable Huawei smartphones could be joining the party soon. It reveals the upcoming Honor V30 5G, Honor V30 Pro 5G, Huawei nova 6 Pro 5G, as well as the Honor Magic 3 5G. Contrary to previous rumors, the listing suggests the V30 series will be an all 5G affairs, with no options for 4G.
As per previous reports, the Honor V30 5G and V30 Pro will come as Honor’s first Kirin 990 5G powered smartphone. The phone will have a 60MP camera on the back and an OLED screen with dual punch holes on the front. Sadly, these devices, much like the Mate 30 series will launch without Google Play Services, and so might not appeal to those outside of China.
speaking of the launch date, Honor President Zhao Ming had earlier in October confirmed the Honor V30 series will debut later this month(November), even though he has yet to confirm the exact time we’ll be able to get our hands on its first 5G smartphone.
