Huawei’s 5G phone is launching soon

HUAWEI’s debut 5G phone, the Huawei Mate 20 X 5G, will launch in select markets this July, despite continued uncertainty around Huawei’s future as a manufacturer of Android devices. China’s state-run Global Times reports that the phone will go on sale in China on July 26th, while VentureBeat notes that the phone is currently available to preorder from Amazon’s Italian site with a release date of July 19, and will be available in the UAE.
The Huawei Mate 20 X 5G is very similar to the existing Mate 20 X externally, with the same 7.2-inch screen, and trio of rear cameras. However, internally its components have been upgraded slightly to handle the demands of its 5G Balong 5000 modem. Most notably, the battery power has been increased from 4,200mAh to 5,000mAh, its RAM has increased from 6GB to 8GB, and its storage has been boosted from 128GB to 256GB.

In other countries the release of Huawei’s first 5G handset is more uncertain thanks to the company’s continued presence on the USA’s Entity List, which has caused Google to suspend its Android license. In the UK, Huawei had originally intended to release it in June, but the handset was subsequently dropped from the 5G launches of both EE and Vodafone.
There are signs that the Trump administration could be set to ease restrictions on Huawei, but there are still ongoing questions about how this will affect its future phones. For now, US officials have said that Huawei will remain on the Entity List, but that it will issue licenses and allow US companies to trade with Huawei “where there is no threat to US national security.” However, it’s currently unclear what impact this would have on Huawei’s use of Android and ARM-based chipsets.
As 5G networks begin rolling out and commercializing around the world, telecoms vendors are rushing to get a headstart. Huawei equipment is now behind two-thirds of the commercially launched 5G networks outside China, said president of Huawei’s carrier business group Ryan Ding at an industry conference.
Huawei, the world’s largest maker of telecoms gear, has nabbed 50 commercial 5G contracts outside its home base from countries including South Korea, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Finland and more. In all, the Shenzhen-based firm has shipped more than 150,000 base stations, according to Ding.
Network carriers can work with more than one provider to deploy different parts of their 5G base stations. Huawei offers what it calls an end-to-end network solution or a full system of hardware, but whether a carrier plans to buy from multiple suppliers is contingent on their needs and local regulations, a Huawei spokesperson told TechCrunch.
In China, for instance, both Ericsson and Nokia have secured 5G contracts from state-run carrier China Mobile (although Nokia’s Chinese entity, a joint venture with Alcatel-Lucent Shanghai Bell, is directly controlled by China’s State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission).
An intelligent world is right around the corner, and AI is seeing wide application in all industries. More and more companies have come to realize the value of AI, and they are no longer questioning whether or not they should go cloud; the conversation has shifted to how they can go cloud more quickly.

Why Huwawei is now one of the world’s most valuable brands and how having a competitive advantage got them there? 5 top tips on maintaining your competitive advantage from Creativ edge. Telecoms equipment maker Huawei is the first Chinese company to enter the Interbrand list of top 100 list of world’s most valuable brands.
As Jez Frampton, Interbrand’s chief executive, said: “Huawei’s rapid growth and long-term investments in its brand helped it earn a place among the world’s most valuable brands. Despite its low brand awareness in the US, Huawei has gradually expanded its reach around the world.”
Having a competitive edge is key because long-term business success involves creating, managing and exploiting assets and skills that competitors find difficult to match or counter.
One key to sustaining a competitive advantage is to develop a core set of competencies that customers want and that are difficult for others to imitate. These competencies can be exploited and leveraged to develop new products or to go after new markets. The ability to leverage competencies across geographic and product business units helps any business to achieve economies over scale and scope. It seems Huawei has done exactly that.
