Chinese technology giant Huawei has tested the 5G download on its upcoming foldable phone, the Mate X, after the Chinese government announced that it will soon release 5G licenses nationwide, which is believed to largely benefit local telecom equipment vendors including Huawei and ZTE.
The download rate through a 5G network has exceeded 1Gbps on the latest Huawei handset. He Gang, head of Huawei’s smartphone division, carried out the test at Huawei Shanghai Research Institute, a video shared by the company on Tuesday shows.
Huawei’s Mate X, which supports the auto switch of 2G, 3G, 4G, and 5G networks, could achieve downstream speed of 1Gbps and upstream speed of close to 100 Mpbs, according to the demo.
The test came a day after the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology announced that it will “soon grant 5G licenses for commercial use” on Monday.
The country’s telecoms regulator did not unveil any details apart from the one-line announcement. The market generally expects that the three largest telecom operators of the country, China Mobile, China Telecom, and China Unicom, will give out most their contracts for building up local 5G networks to the two local telecoms equipment giants, Huawei and ZTE.

“We are looking forward to the commercialization of 5G networks and Mate X, which will allow users to experience good products and networks,” Huawei’s consumer business group head Richard Yu said on his Weibo account on Tuesday, commenting on the 5G demo.
Huawei, which showcased its Mate X during MWC in Barcelona earlier this year, is scheduled to ship the foldable product this month as planned, the company told media in April, after Samsung postponed the shipment of Galaxy Fold due to serious problems with the screens.
Huawei’s Mate X is equipped with the world’s first 7nm 5G multi-mode modem chipset Balong 5000 which could support “unprecedented 5G download speeds”, Huawei said in a press release.

The Easiest Way To Back Up Your Android Phone’s Data
Google’s service for saving and restoring photos and videos is called “Backup & Sync.” It works across all platforms. But the tool is pre-integrated into the Google Photos app for Android.
- To create a backup for your photo and video gallery, download and install Google Photos from the Play Store (if you haven’t already).
- You’ll be asked to sign in with a Google Account of your choice.
- After signing in, tap your profile picture in the corner to pull up the preferences.
- Next, navigate to Photos Settings > Backup & Sync and toggle the switch.
- Backup & Sync will automatically start saving your photos and videos to the cloud. Once the process is completed successfully, you will see a green accent and a checkmark around your profile picture.
Unless you’re on a Pixel phone, the storage isn’t unlimited. From June 1, 2021, Google only offers 15GB of free storage. But you can always buy extra storage or adjust the upload size to save space. To change the Upload size, scroll down the Backup & Sync menu and select Upload size. And pick from Storage saver or Original quality modes (via Google).
Also, you can specify individual folders if you don’t need to back up your entire gallery. Go to Backup and Sync > backup device folders and toggle your chosen folders from the list.
Why Your Android Phone Goes Straight To Voicemail And How To Fix It
If you need periods blocked off in your day to focus or relax, the Do Not Disturb Mode is a handy feature to have. You can either block all phone calls or only accept calls or messages from the contacts you want to hear from. If this setting is enabled, it also blocks app notifications, text messages, and alarms. But what if you forget to turn it off? Or switch it on by accident? Depending on who calls, you probably won’t hear your phone ring, and their calls will most likely go to voicemail.
Here’s how you can turn it off in three simple steps.
Swipe down from the top of your screen to pull down your phone’s notification menu.
Check if the Do Not Disturb button is enabled at the bottom right.
If it’s on (the button will be lit). Tap once to turn it off.
Another way to turn off the Do Not Disturb function is to go through the settings menu on your phone.
Go to the Settings app on your phone
Hit Sound & vibration > Do not disturb > Turn on/off now.
If you own a phone that is Android 8.1 and below, press Sound > Do not disturb. Toggle the switch on/off
The Galaxy Note Is Dead, But Its Spirit Will Live On Every Year
According to notorious tipster @Ice universe, Samsung mobile division head TM Roh was quoted as saying that the Galaxy Note will appear in the form of the Galaxy S Ultra every year. The direct implication here is that there will no longer be a Galaxy Note model moving forward. It also suggests that the Galaxy S Ultra models will retain the same form and features as the Galaxy Note, just like the Galaxy S22 Ultra released in 2022.
In terms of features, that basically means that the Galaxy S Ultra model will continue carrying an S-Pen inside its body. That design change started with the Galaxy S22 Ultra this year, in contrast to the previous Galaxy S21 Ultra generation, which had no room for the stylus inside. That same ultra-large phone distinguished itself from the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ with its boxier design, similar to that of the latest Galaxy Note models. Whether that design will remain going forward is still unknown, but the exact appearance of the Galaxy Note was never its defining feature anyway.
This news, if confirmed to be official, will probably send mixed feelings to Galaxy Note fans. On the one hand, they will be relieved that the S Pen isn’t going anywhere, at least not yet. On the other hand, the brand beloved by professionals and creatives is finally being retired after almost a decade of service. The move will at least help consolidate Samsung’s Galaxy S brand and even make the S-Pen a staple of its flagship — and hopefully, it will at least stay that way for more years to come.
