HTC unveils 5G Smart Hub

HTC has launched its super-fast 5G Hub.

The new tablet-like gadget aims to "harnesses 5G speeds for home, business, and everywhere in between", according to a press release for the home media centre.

The Smart Hub acts as a hassle-free way to get connected to the latest mobile network and will also be a "game-changer" for VR and AR.

Cher Wang, Chairwoman and CEO of HTC, commented: "HTC is proud to bring to market the world's first 5G mobile smart hub.

"5G will be the game-changer for VR and AR, and the new HTC 5G Hub will seamlessly deliver the great bandwidth of 5G to our devices, driving our vision of Vive Reality--a boundless, immersive environment where human experiences will come to the forefront."

The Hub will allow for smooth 4K video streaming, low-latency gaming, and 5G mobile hotspot features for up to 20 users.

The HTC 5G Hub will be available through Sprint, Telstra, and in Europe, EE (UK), Three UK, Deutsche Telekom (Germany), Sunrise (Switzerland), and Elisa (Finland).

The Chinese firm has also set out plans to eventually enable users to be able to stream VR content from the cloud to a VIVE Focus headset via the HTC 5G Hub, without a PC through wireless connection, for a "high-end VR experience".

The HTC 5G Hub will be available through select retailers later this year.
