HT C unveiled the new HT C 5 G Hub, a first-of-its-kind dedicated 5 G mobile smart hub that commands the rapid speeds of the future. Designed for ease of use in both home and office environments, this versatile device enables smooth 4 K video streaming, low-latency gaming, and 5 G mobile hot spot features for up to 20 users. Carriers across the globe will offer the HT C 5 G Hub including Sprint, Telecaster, and recently added European carriers: Three UK, Deutsche Germany, Switzerland, and Finland.
The HT C 5 G Hub allows customers to use 5 G on multiple devices while on the go, at work, or at home for fast connectivity, content sharing, entertainment and more. A 5-inch H D touchscreen allows for ease of use and high-quality visuals, and long-lasting power makes for a travel companion that harnesses 5 G speeds dramatically faster than 4 G LT E networks.
This product is also at the forefront of cloud-based virtual reality technology. In the future, users will be able to stream V R content from the cloud to a VIBE Focus headset via the HT C 5 G Hub no PC or unnecessary cables required to enjoy a mobile, high-end V R experience in real time.
Smartphone developer HT C’s market share fell from a peak in 2011 to about 1% last year, per tech research firm ID data. The Taiwanese company has struggled to complete in recent years with other Android handset makers on marketing, sales channels and specs. It lost money in 2017 and profited last year only after letting Google buy part of its staff. But now a unique piece of hardware for 5 G mobile users stands to give HT C at least a short-term income boost.
HT C is selling its 5 G Hub devices for small groups of mobile users to stream videos or play games at top speeds without hiccups. The hubs were due to start selling last month for $600 apiece in the United States. Command the rapid speeds of the future with the HT C 5 G Hub. Designed for ease of use in both home and office environments, this versatile device enables smooth 4 K video streaming, low-latency gaming, and faster networks.
With long-lasting power and Android 9 Pie support, the HT C 5 G Hub is also made for a wide array of on-the-go situations, harnessing 5 G speeds that are dramatically faster than 4 G LT E networks.
At HT C, “they position it as a connectivity node for the home or office, WIFE router, but also something that can be taken on the move to provide an individual employee 5 G signal access akin to a Miff device,” says Jason Leigh, an ID research manager for mobility.
Kevin Te-oh, Estrada’s Consumer Segment Executive, said,
“We are working with the very best in 5 G and Mobile Broadband to bring our customers the next generation of devices and enable a future of greater connectivity. Telecaster is proud to partner with HT C on the launch of the world’s first 5 G mobile smart hub, which will be Australia’s first 5 G mobile device.”
Dave Dyson, CEO at Three, said:
“HT C has a tradition of leading the way with new technologies. 5G is going to bring unimaginable possibilities to connect people to people, people to things and things to things. As a connectivity provider we are at the heart of all of it and bringing this 5 G hub to the UK, will enable our customers to make the most of our leading 5 G network alongside all the capabilities of this innovative device.”
“HT C is proud to bring to market the world’s first 5 G mobile smart hub,” said Che Wang, Chairwoman and CEO of HT C. “5 G will be the game-changer for V R and AR, and the new HT C 5 G Hub will seamlessly deliver the great bandwidth of 5 G to our devices, driving our vision of Rive Reality a boundless, immersive environment where human experiences will come to the forefront.”
The 5 G hub’s contribution to revenue, however, won’t last long or leave it a tower or money, tech analysts say.
Its price will limit the number of sales, likewise a lack of appeal to the mass, non-gaming market, Automaton says. A hub user also would need to join a relatively high 5 G data plan to make the device work, adding to the real price.
The HT C 5 G Hub is also designed for high-speed mobility use with the next-generation business environment in mind. This product supports the powerful WI-F capabilities offered on the Snapdragon 855 Platform by including the Communal® 60 G HZ WI-F cheapest (based on the 802.11 specification) for multi-gigabit speeds and wire equivalent lateness, as well as the Communal® 2 x 2 WI-F 6-ready chip-set for next-generation capacity, efficiency, and performance at range. A 7,660 ma battery makes the HT C 5 G Hub ready to support a wide range of on-the-go duties. Businesses can connect up to 20 devices safely and securely on a high-speed encrypted network or configure for a corporate VP N. As businesses grow, the 5 G network is also easily salable via built-in Gigabit Ethernet port.
HT C could easily lose whatever lead it takes in today’s market as competitors move in, Zing says. Network communications equipment brands such as Net gear, Huawei and Ins ego have made 5 G-enabled equipment already, so their “entry barriers to 5 G hubs featuring screen- or voice-controlled technology are not high,” she says.
