ZTE to launch 5G connectivity phone at MWC, will offer gigabit speeds

ZTE to launch 5G connectivity phone at MWC, will offer gigabit speeds”

Is a gigabit-capable smartphone really forward-looking? Problem is no telecom carrier in the world supports gigabit LTE yet. Even AT&T is taking steps towards faster "pre-5G", with plans for its 5G Evolution network this year. The phone will also feature some Hi-Fi music components in the phone (perhaps something like the Quad DAC on the V20, hopefully) as well as support for Daydream.

With the announcement, ZTE joins a long line of Chinese manufacturers who are slated to show off a new phone during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona which kicks off February 27.

But while plenty of people are quick to point out that the first gigabit LTE devices will serve as a precursor to 5G rollout, it's unlikely that we'll see the next-gen network technology until roughly 2020.

Toddler among 2 dead in shooting on Chicago's West Side
Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said the toddler was resuscitated and was on life support at Stroger Hospital. About three minutes later, several shots ring out. "I have a bullet in my stomach", a traumatized Breunna screams.

Last but month the rumor mill spurted out an interesting tidbit - Chinese phone maker ZTE might be looking to unveil a ground breaking phone concept at MWC 2017 in Barcelona. For now we can only guess if the Gigabit Phone will have the latest SoC by the San Diego-based company or another solution.

Unfortunately, not much is known about the phone, so we don't know the specs or the price. All we know, for now, is that the Gigabit Phone will be able to make 360-degree VR and 4K video possible on the move. That's not to say they won't also launch the phone for consumer use, but we imagine such a launch will be pretty limited. More details of the smartphone are still under wraps.
