First 5G Huawei smartphones due late 2019

First 5G Huawei smartphones due late 2019 The new Huawei P30 and P30 Pro smartphones are not expected to land in 5G versions, according to the firm's CEO, Richard Yu, in an interview reported by MySmartPrice. The brand's first 5G model is likely to be the forthcoming Mate 30, scheduled to be unveiled in fall 2019 -- not to mention the firm's first folding smartphone, the Mate X, due to launch soon in selected markets.

But consumers can be resistant to such changes. Not to mention that the cards are vastly more expensive than existing microSD cards.
