HTC Corp (宏達電) yesterday said that it would partner with Sprint Corp to develop a 5G mobile smart hub to tap 5G network technology opportunities in the US.
The device is to begin shipping in the first half of next year, said HTC, which has continued to establish footholds in leading-edge technologies including 5G, augmented reality, virtual reality, artificial intelligence and blockchain.
The device is to be powered by Qualcomm Inc’s Snapdragon X50 modem, which can provide gigabit-class data speeds, Sprint said.
The companies provided scant details on the upcoming device’s features, pricing or name. [FULL STORY]
