ZTE Launches First 5G Smartphone
The device is equipped with the latest Snapdragon 855 octa-core processor with 6 GB of RAM, running on the Android 9.0 Pie operating system. The amount of internal memory is 128 GB, while the smartphone is equipped with a microSD card slot with a capacity of up to 512 GB. The battery capacity is 4 thousand milliampere-hours.
In July of this year, the first eight models of smartphones for fifth-generation mobile communications received quality certificates in China, which gave them the opportunity to enter the Chinese market. Huawei introduced four models, the remaining four certificates received Chinese manufacturers Oppo, Vivo, ZTE and One Plus.
But, some experts are skeptical, for example, Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei said that this year the company will put about 600,000 Mate 20 X 5G units on the market. Next year, a volume of 1.5 million units is planned. These are very small indicators for Huawei. For example, in March, the company revealed the total supply of smartphones of the Mate 20 series, and it turned out to be equal to 10 million devices. Huawei thinks realistically. Third-party analysts are also confident that, until 2021, one shouldn't expect growth in sales of devices supporting 5G. Everything is logical: until the network infrastructure is developed at a sufficient level, devices will not be popular.
