NOS, an industry leader in communications and entertainment in Portugal, is the first operator to launch a smartphone on the Portuguese market that is 5G-ready.
The Huawei Mate 20 X 5G is the first commercial device prepared for the fifth generation of mobile communications in the country.
After having already carried out the first demonstration of 5G capabilities in a real life environment and having transformed NOS Alive at the first 5G festival in Portugal, NOS strengthens its leadership in the move towards 5G. It does this by offering people the opportunity to acquire the first smartphone 100% prepared for the new generation of mobile communications in the country.
Built in accordance with the required specifications for 5G, the Huawei Mate 20 X 5G is equipped with a 7.2’’ OLED screen, an octacore Kirin 980 + Balong 5000 processor, 8GB RAM, 256GB of storage, triple rear mounted 40MP+8MP+20MP cameras and a 24MP front mounted camera. As it has been prepared for the future 5G network, this smartphone also works on the current 4G network. The smartphone is now for sale on the online store and in the NOS store network and for immediate purchase at stores in the following shopping centres: Centro Comercial Colombo, NorteShopping, Forum Coimbra, Braga Parque and Centro Comercial La vie in Funchal.
Portugal is among those European Union members taking the necessary steps to make 5G available commercially in at least one city by 2020 and to provide more extensive coverage by 2025.
