Announced in February, the model comes equipped with 6.47 inch AMOLED 1080p screen. However, customers are not expected to have access to the 5G network until October, the month China promises to start marketing the technology, according to Gizchina.

Apart from ZTE, in May the same source said that 5G coverage in the territory would be guaranteed by Huawei and Ericsson. But according to Xinhua news agency, which advanced with news of the release of the ZTE model, China Telecom and China Unicom have also been licensed to operate their own commercial 5G networks.

According to the agency, Huawei is not expected to launch the Huawei Mate 20 X 5G before August 16, although the model has already been launched in other countries.

Portugal was one of those countries, ahead of China, considering that the launch of Huawei's first 5G smartphone happened on Saturday, August 3, through NOS. However, the outlook is not as bright as the Chinese case, as the Portuguese government does not yet have a scheduled date for the commercial launch of the technology.
