HTC 5G Hub Thread

Recommended Posts

I was taking a look at the HTC 5G Hub that's supposed to be launching on Sprint sometime this month. It looks like it could technically be Sprint's first foray into the WISP space. On HTC's site they mention it as a sort of replacement for your WiFi router with the ability to connect up to 20 devices to it. I wonder what data caps will be on this when it launches and what they plan on charging people for using it?

It seems to be a lot of things smashed into one device. It's combining a wireless router, a streaming box, and a cloud gaming device all into one. It also has support for pretty much every U.S. LTE band.

A few more details now that Sprint has announced a release date for the 5G Hub.

Quote

Sprint (NYSE: S) today announced May 31 as the availability date for its first two 5G devices, LG V50 ThinQTM 5G and HTC 5G Hub. Both devices will initially be available to customers in the first four expected 5G markets – Atlanta, Dallas, Houston and Kansas City. They will then be available in Sprint’s other 5G markets – Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, Phoenix and Washington, D.C. – in the next few weeks.

Dynamic opportunities for the smart, yet simple HTC 5G Hub include:

  • As a home media center, HTC 5G Hub will harness Sprint’s 5G speeds to stream 4K videos to a second screen and deliver crisp and clear content. It can also replace a Wi-Fi router and remove unnecessary cables with a simple plug-and-play setup. Intuitive voice command makes it easy to manage entertainment or play your favorite games on your home TV.
  • Devoted gamers will appreciate its lower latency, up to 60fps and 4K resolution (on compatible televisions) combined with the processing power of Qualcomm®Snapdragon™ 855 with Snapdragon X50 5G modem for unprecedented data speeds and power for native Android and PC games supported on the large screen.
  • Small and home-based businesses will quickly find HTC 5G Hub to be a must-have business tool. A built-in Gigabit Ethernet port and 7,660mAh battery will keep teams powered up and easily connected. Businesses can connect up to 20 devices safely and securely on a high-speed encrypted network or configure for a corporate VPN.

Any news on if this will work on existing Mobile Broadband Plans? Eg. the unlimited mobile plan they offered a year or so ago.
