ZTE to unveil world's first 5G-ready smartphone during Mobile World Congress

ZTE's Gigabit Phone wants to help usher the '5G era,' will be unveiled at MWC ZTE announces its Gigabit Phone with ultra-fast connectivity

While we're likely still a ways off from seeing 1Gbps wireless speeds, it's still good to see ZTE prepping for the future by working on a 1Gbps-capable smartphone right now.

Besides the unbelievable download speeds - ZTE did not share details of how the phone will achieve such fast connectivity - the Gigabit Phone will also have the ability to create panoramic, 360-degree video, and it will come with "instant cloud storage".

With the announcement, ZTE joins a long line of Chinese manufacturers who are slated to show off a new phone during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona which kicks off February 27.

Unsurprisingly, the ZTE gigabit phone is being tipped to use Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor, as it includes an X16 modem capable of supporting gigabit LTE speeds. Of course that's about all ZTE is saying about the phone at the moment.

Last but month the rumor mill spurted out an interesting tidbit - Chinese phone maker ZTE might be looking to unveil a ground breaking phone concept at MWC 2017 in Barcelona. There's no word on the other specs, the availability, or even what networks/carriers they are partnering with to make this phone's promised gigabit speeds possible.

Gigabit LTE device can support speeds up to 1Gbps, which means the ZTE smartphone will be ready for 5G technology, expected to roll out by 2020. Again, that's just speculation on our part.
