We'll also start seeing 5G smartphones in 2019 as chip manufacturers are due to start supplying their compatible products as well. As Huawei plans to launch the 5G technology in June 2019 so one thing is clear that P-series smartphone would not qualify. There's no actual phones coming from the events, but we still get some interesting technology announcements. Xu expressed his hope that 5G would bring the mobile Internet – especially mobile video – to a level comparable to mobile voice service today, allowing users to enjoy mobile broadband services wherever and whenever they want. Huawei plans to roll out commercial 5G solutions for NSA (non-standalone) networks in September 2018 and other solutions for standalone 5G networks in March 2019. Their baseband units and remote radio units are the same, their protocols are largely the same, and mobile internet services [form] the bulk of data traffic in both 4G and 5G networks.

Huawei has always been one of the leaders in pushing 5G technology ahead of the worldwide expected launch of the new superfast networks in 2020. This means we might see this tech debut on a mid-range smartphone. But, the Mate 30 series which isn't expected to launch until October 2019 might have 5G support.

The Huawei chairman said his firm is a "major 5G standards contributor and patent holder", and that Huawei had released a statement on May 15 announcing their commitment to the FRAND principle (Fair, Reasonable, and Non-discriminatory).
