According to official information, Balong 5000 is currently the industry’s strongest 5G smartphone chip, and is also the first single-chip featuring multi-mode , that is supporting 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G, with lower power consumption and shorter latency. It is also compatible with NSA (non-independent networking) and SA (independent networking) architectures, which can flexibly cope with the communication capability requirements of users and operators for hardware devices in different stages of 5G industry development.
According to data released by Huawei, the Balong 5000 5G baseband chip can achieve 4.6Gbps in the sub-6 GHz band (low frequency band, 5G main band), while in the millimeter band (high frequency band, 5G extended band) upgrade to 6.5Gbps, which is 10 times the experience rate of 4G LTE.

At the press conference, Huawei also announced the industry’s first 5G base station chip, Tiangang, and demonstrated the installation of the 5G base station. Compared with 4G base stations, 5G base stations are smaller and more integrated, enabling one-person handling and installation time savings of 35%.
Huawei officially said that it has obtained 30 5G contracts and shipped 25,000 5G base stations. Huawei Ding Wei believes that 4G will change lives, while 5G will make life better.
