Huawei Mate 20 X 5G debuted in our country at the beginning of July, but only now the first operator decided to put it in its offer. You probably think, why a smartphone like that, if there is no 5G network.
And here is the dog buried. Well, you can buy a Chinese smartphone as part of a subscription or without and join the tests of the future network, e.g. in Torun, where Play began experiments with 5G. Interestingly, the partner of the operator is the Huawei company, which recently enjoys in Europe and America in a bad name, and this is due to the giant spy affair for the Chinese government.
“Today, the most modern smartphones 5G, Huawei Mate 20 X 5G hit the PLAY offer. No operator in Poland has decided to take a similar step. The introduction of the first 5G smartphone for sale is the next stage of the implementation of the fifth generation network by PLAY. The Huawei Mate 20 X 5G smartphone will be available in all PLAY subscription offers and without contract. Orders can be placed in the online store play.pl. The phone can also be ordered in Play stores, in this case, after the contract in the salon, the telephone will be sent to the indicated customer’s address from the central warehouse “- we read in the operator’s statement.
According to Play, the pilot will start “from a cluster of 5 sectors, using the Huawei 5G C-band CPE V1.0 router, using 100 MHz, in the 3.5-3.6 GHz frequency band”. In the first place, the most demanding users will be invited to the 5G network tests. If you buy the Huawei Mate 20 X 5G you will be able to try to include from the tests. The phone in the store costs PLN 4299 without a subscription, while the SOLO M subscription fee will cost PLN 4,169.
“The 5G READY network is now available in 24% of the PLAY network, and by the end of the year this indicator will increase to 38%. Pilotage in Torun is another stage of dynamic infrastructure development, preparing us for the full implementation of 5G technology. We appreciate the cooperation with our technology partner Huawei, in the implementation of this exciting undertaking “- said Michał Ziółkowski, Member of the Management Board of Technical Affairs.
On the occasion of the construction of the 5G network in our country. it is worth adding that only closed tests will continue for now. We will be able to talk about a commercial service in about two years. Meanwhile, it is the smartphone from Huawei, or Mate 20 X will be the first in Poland, from which you can connect with the super-fast 5G network.
