Huawei will be among the first to roll out 5G phones and infrastructure in India

Huawei is reportedly working on new categories of devices and services.


While many are talking about 5G in the tech space, Huawei wants to be at the forefront of bringing the technology supported devices to the market especially in India.

Huawei will be among the first to roll out 5G phones in India


As we all know, Huawei and its sub-brand Honor has gained a lot of popularity since its arrival three years ago in India. The brands have already proven to be a tough competition to major players like Samsung and Apple in China, and the company is gearing up to delivering the same performance in India as well. The company is, in fact, betting big on its upcoming smartphone models, that will prove to be a major hit in the Indian market.

And as far as reports are concerned Huawei will be aiming more at high-end devices with unique features. That being said, BusinessLine notes that the company will not be participating in manufacturing low-cost smartphones or feature phones in the Indian market. Peter Zhai, President, Huawei India Consumer Business Group, in an interview with BusinessLine has shared that the company is working on new categories of devices and services.

Zhai has further said that Indian market provides a lot of opportunities and Huawei has a long-term plan in terms of what it can do in the next 10 years. "We are seeing opportunities like 5G, 6G and so on. We are not focussed on short-term market gains, but long-term plans and a variety of partnerships and consumers in long-term."

Thus coming back to the 5G topic, Zhai has assured that Huawei will be the number one company to push out 5G phones and infrastructure in India when the 5G network is ready. According to him a lot of work is being carried out at the company's R&D center.

Interestingly, if 5G does become a reality and once the services are rolled out Huawei will most probably be coming out products with high-end features in the mid-range segment or the premium category.


"When people start adopting data, they upgrade their phones and want more user-friendly experience. We see an opportunity there. Even if they (operators) ask us to manufacture handsets at low costs (₹2,000), we won't be doing that, as that is not our main focus," concludes Zhai.
