Fantastic: Turns Out You Can Add 5G To A 4G Phone By Using A Case

The idea of adding 5G connectivity to a 4G cell phone is a brilliant solution, and it is a surprise that someone did not think of it before now. The good thing is that it is here now, thanks to Huawei and a company called Soyealink. Soyealink made a 5G case for Huawei P50 Pro, so owners of the phone can use 5G on it. Here’s the back story.

If you have been following smartphone news, you already know that a few years ago, the US government placed a ban on Huawei. That ban includes cutting the company off from access to 5G components and technology. As such, Huawei has not been able to manufacture any 5G phones. Yes; all of Huawei’s premium flagships since the ban have been 4G cell phones. That’s a big problem, and it has been solved with Soyealink’s 5G case for the Huawei P50 Pro.

The case has a built-in 5G modem and e-SIM, so it can connect to 5G networks. It also has a USB connector that is used to connect it to the P50 Pro to pass on service to the phone. Snap on the 5G case to the phone and you have a 5G-connected 4G smartphone. Did I say earlier that it is brilliant? Absolutely.

This might be the beginning of a new line of products – plug-in accessories that add 5G connectivity to non-5G cellphones. So, besides cases, we might see 5G USB adapters that you can plug into a 4G or 3G phone, so it can access 5G service. Why do you have to change a smartphone you like just so you can enjoy 5G? I really like this idea. We will definitely see more 5G cases hit the market, and they won’t be only for Huawei smartphones.

    GBAM.

    The idea of upgradeable phones seems not to be on the front burner for the eggheads.

    Why shouldn’t I be able to upgrade my phone RAM, for example?
