Mobile World Congress is looming in the near future, and it seems that ZTE has something special up their sleeves for the conference teasing the ‘ZTE Gigabit Phone’.

The Gigabit phone is so-called because of its ability to 5G, allowing for download speeds up to 1Gbps, a speed reminiscent of the recent Qualcomm trials here using the Telstra network. The inclusion of ultra-fast speeds will open the door, ZTE says, to including things like ‘360° panoramic VR video, instant cloud storage, entertainment upgrades and fast cache of ultra Hi-Fi music and movies possible’.

The Gigabit phone will be but one device announced at MWC, with ZTE also set to show off a range of new Blade series phones.

ZTE has been expanding the range of phones they make available here in Australia, and with the new 5G service already tested here, it’s likely we may see this new Gigabit phone, and any new Blade series phones launching here at some stage.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

It’s more likely to just support 4×4 MIMO and 256QAM over 4G, as Samsung’s new phones will, to allow for gigabit speeds on compatible network towers.

5G as a standard isn’t even finalised yet, so it’s extremely unlikely any actual “5G” hardware would be coming this year. The frequency bands 5G will use are not yet agreed upon.
