Huawei 5G Mobile WiFi E6878-370 Review

Huawei presented a new mobile 5G routers to the public with the latest 5G smartphone – Huawei Mate 30 5G and Mate 30 Pro 5G. The device with the name Huawei E6878-370 was already announced in early 2019 at the MWC, but apparently Huawei has changed the design again and they look like different models.

 

The Huawei E6878 is a little bit big and heavy compared to other mobile hotspots, but it’s still easy to hold in one hand. This is probably mainly because the new Huawei 5G WiFi Router has integrated a 8,000 mAh battery. In power-hungry 5G operation, the battery should provide very good battery life.

 


 
The Huawei 5G pocket WiFi can also be used as a power bank, but in addition to the USB type C port, a full-size USB port is also available. Even wireless reverse charging is supported by the router.


On the front of the Huawei 5G Mobile WiFi E6878, there is a small display. Unfortunately, the display is very heavily mirrored; in the bright light you could hardly see it. The operation and configuration can also be done via the Huawei Mobile WiFi app or via a browser web interface.



There is a slot for a SIM card and two buttons on the side. Unfortunately, the battery is not replaceable by the user, while the competitor Netgear all mobile router models have standard replaceable batteries. However, the Huawei E6878-370 not only has the fast battery charging function with up to 40W (Super Charge), but also the 8000 mAh strong battery can charge other electronic devices.


The chipset of Huawei E6878-370 5G Mobile WiFi is a HiSilicon Balong 5000. Of course, the 5G modem is backwards compatible with 4G/LTE, 3G/UMTS and 2G/GSM. According to the official sayings, Huawei E6878-370 could achieve download speed up to 1.65Mbps and upload speed up to 250Mbps. This speed is much faster than the speed from the predecessor Huawei E5788, which can already achieve 1 GBit/s downlink.

 


 

However, the Internet connection via WiFi 6 is unavailable, which was introduced to be available. Of course, the 5G WiFi router is also backwards compatible with older WLAN standards. Unfortunately, the Huawei E6878 is not equipped with RJ45 Ethernet LAN port, so you have to rely on the USB port, if no Wi-Fi can be used or may.

The Huawei 5G Mobile WiFi Hotspot will be available to buy at the end of 2019 in various global markets. If the 5G networks will not be available in short time at your location, you may check the budget 4G mobile WiFi Huawei E5788.

Huawei Released New 5G Mobile WiFi Hotspot E6878

A few days ago, Huawei also launched the 5G mobile WiFi hotspots in the model number of Huawei E6878, which will be available for 5G networks in China next month in addition to new 5G mobile phone.

 

 

As introduced by Huawei, the Huawei 5G moible WiFi is world’s first 5G dual-mode mobile WiFi hotspot. And the series have two models: one is the standard version and the other is Pro version. They got the official name Huawei 5G Mobile WiFi(Model Number: E6878-870) and Huawei 5G mobile WiFi Pro (Model Number: E6878-370). There are two colors for the 5G mobile routers: White and Black.

 

 

They are both with built-in Balong 5000 chipset, which can convert 5G signals into high-speed WiFi, allowing non-5G mobile phones, tablets, laptops, etc. to enjoy high speed. They can support 5G NSA/SA dual mode. Type-C connection speed can reaches 1.65Gbp, and WiFi connection peak speed can reach 867Mbps.

HTC 5G Hub Review

HTC was one of the first manufacturers to introduce a 5G router at MWC 2019, which was launched in the second quarter of 2019. It uses the new 5G mobile communication standard for fast data transmission and is primarily suitable for home use, but can also be used on the go. One of the main features on the front of the device is a large display. In addition, the HTC 5G hub will later support a cloud VR mode, in which a local player can be omitted.

High data transfer rates

Inside the HTC 5G Hub is a Snapdragon 855 Octa-core chipset, a CPU with Octa-core, which is installed in the latest 5G smartphones like the ZTE Axon 10 PRO 5G phone. With the Snapdragon X50 5G modem, the HTC 5G router supports maximum data transfer rates of 2.63 Gbps in the download and up to 287 Mbps in the upload. If no 5G connection prevails, the device can also switch to and work on 4G network. A fallback to older technology such as 3G or 2G can’t be done in the HTC 5G Hub.  

 

Nevertheless, a mobile application is possible. In addition to power from a power outlet, the HTC 5G router also has a built-in battery. The capacity of 7,260 mAh should provide enough energy for a whole day. The battery is charged either with the enclosed power supply, via USB Power Delivery on the 9 Volt rail or with Quick Charge 3.0 via USB.

 

 

 

WLAN for up to 20 devices

 

If the HTC 5G Hub has established a connection to the 5G network, it distributes the signal via WLAN in its environment. Not only the usual IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac standards are used, but also 802.11ax (WiFi 6). This means that the HTC 5G Hub can span not only the familiar 2.4 and 5 GHz frequencies but also a 60 GHz WLAN. However, only a few devices support this new standard so far. Wifi at 60 GHz has very high data transfer rates between the 5G WLAN router and the terminal, provided that there are no obstacles such as walls in the way.  

 

However, the number of maximum connector users is limited. A maximum of 20 clients can connect to the HTC 5G Hub via Wi-Fi. There are four high-speed connections via 802.11ax. This limit can be quickly exceeded today in a household with various technical devices. Other Wifi access points usually support more connections, ie 32 to 64.  

 

 

 

Integrated display and speakers

 

Visually, the HTC 5G Hub is more like a Google smart home hub rather than a traditional router. This is mainly due to the integrated touchscreen on the front of the device. This measures 5 inches and displays the contents in HD resolution with 720 x 1,280 pixels. In addition, two speakers for stereo sound and a microphone that pays constant attention to voice commands, are integrated.  

 

The HTC 5G Hub is in the dimensions of 12.9 x 10 x 4.3 cm and weights 340 g and provides 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of memory. If the internal memory space is insufficient, it can be expanded via microSD card. What exciting are the possibilities that the HTC 5G Hub can stream content to other devices such as a TV and the use of Cloud VR is also planned. A local player can then be omitted in the presentation of VR content. Instead, the data is streamed via cloud computing. This is made possible by the potentially low latencies of 5G. This requires a compatible 5G network that allows mobile edge computing.

 

 

Price and availability

 

The HTC 5G Hub is available for many network providers over the world. Together with the Tariff, you may get cheaper price. If you only get the single HTC 5G Hub, the price would be much higher.
