It is a good news for consumers as recently roll-out of 5G network technology has started in UAE and KSA by telecom operators but still there are no 5G capable smartphones available in the market to enjoy the service.

There is no information whether it will be a brand new Honor 5G smartphone or just a 5G variant of an existing Honor flagship smartphone.

Recently the HONOR 20 smartphone has achieved a record-high sales performance of more than one million units in just two weeks in China. The HONOR 20 PRO has achieved a combined sales volume of RMB 100 million within three seconds of its launch.

Chris Sunbaigong, President, HONOR, MEA said;
2019 is a good year for consumers to explore 5G experiences and its applications on smartphones as well as setting their needs and expectations from it. 5G has been always a priority for HONOR and we are working continuously to better meet today’s and upcoming consumers’ expectations from 5G smartphones.
