According to reports, Huawei P40 series will support Wi-Fi 6+ technology which is self-developed by Huawei. In addition, at the Huawei Terminal Product and Strategy Online Conference Huawei will release a new router that supports Wi-Fi 6+ technology. This is not the Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 router but the Huawei router AX3 series. This router series has two models, Huawei router AX3 and the Pro model.
According to recent speculations, Huawei router AX3 will also come with the HongMeng system. They will support 3000Mbps speed as well as a 160MHz large bandwidth. The actual download speed is more than 1Gbps, and it is compatible with 160Mhz of Wi-Fi 5. According to the company, the HongMeng system is more secure and stable after 2 years of testing. Analysts speculate that the AX3 / AX3 Pro is more consumer-oriented while Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 routers target the enterprise market.
