The price of the first batch of officially listed 5G mobile phones is lower than expected.

In the early morning of the 5th, ZTE's first 5G mobile phone Axon10 Pro 5G version was officially launched, priced at 4,999 yuan. It is reported that the zero point has just arrived, the 5G experience store in Suning Tesco Plaza in Beijing's Ciyun Temple, the first buyer under the line. Online, zero, the first ZTE 5G mobile phone was officially issued from Jingdong warehouse, and the first order was delivered within 10 minutes.

and Huawei's first commercial 5G mobile phone Mate 20 X (5G) is 11 days away from the official sale, priced at 6,199 yuan. As of 9:00 am on August 5, the "Economic Daily" reporter saw that Huawei Jingdong self-operated official flagship store has 151,000 people to reserve the phone, Tmall Huawei official flagship store reservations about 132,000. It should be noted that at present, the price of the 4G version of the Huawei Mate 20 X mobile phone is still above 4,000 yuan, and the price of the initial listing is close to 5,000 yuan.

It is understood that VIVO's 5G mobile phone will also be available in August, and the price is about 4,000 to 5,000 yuan.

When the 5G license was just issued, the trial 5G mobile phones on the market were all over 10,000 yuan. From the current 5G mobile phones, the price dropped rapidly. The idea of ​​mobile phone manufacturers is generally that they will not consider profit for the time being, and it is more important to occupy the user first.

For example, He Gang, president of Huawei's consumer mobile phone product line, said that Huawei's first 5G mobile phone has no sales and profit requirements, mainly for more consumers to use quickly. Because only the number of users goes up, 5G networks, terminals and services can mature quickly in practice.

Many experts pointed out that the first batch of 5G mobile phones is just a 4G mobile phone with a 5G baseband chip attached, which is the first step compared with the official 5G mobile phone. But even so, the cost of 5G mobile phones is still about 2,000 yuan higher than 4G mobile phones.

"There are two key points, one is the antenna, the number is 50% more than 4G; the second is the chip, which is not yet mass produced, so the current amount is higher. But I think this is A mature process, until the second half of next year, the price of 5G mobile phones will be basically close to the current 4G mobile phones ." ZTE AdvancedWang Xiang, vice president and chief strategy officer, said.

In this regard, chip giant Qualcomm has a say. Qualcomm CEO Steve Morankopf expects that 5G will be more global than 4G. By the beginning of 2020, there will be about 5G mobile phones of around 3,000 yuan.

In fact, when the 5G commercial license was just issued in early June, telecom analyst Fu Liang advised consumers not to worry about it. He believes that by the fourth quarter of next year, 5G mobile phones may fall to 2,000 yuan to 3,000 yuan.

During the MWC19 Shanghai Exhibition at the end of June, Li Huizhen, vice president of China Mobile, made it clear that China Mobile will push the price of 5G chips and terminals to quickly drop. By the end of 2020, it will launch a 5G mobile phone from 1000 yuan to 2000 yuan. High-, medium-, and low-end 5G products are cooperating. At the same time, it has created more than 100 terminal products for the consumer and industry markets. It is estimated that the 5G terminal market will reach tens of millions or even 100 million yuan in 2020.

scale applications can bring affordable products. According to data released by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, at present, there are about 20 5G mobile phones available for listing, and more will be available by the end of the year. 5G devices and terminals have entered a mature stage.

More people are concerned about the use of 5G mobile phones without a signal? Earlier, China Mobile announced that it will implement 5G commercial services in more than 50 cities by 2019. In 2020, 5G commercial services will be provided in all cities above the prefecture level.

All indications are that 2020 is a more mature opportunity for getting started with 5G mobile phones.
