5g is still struggling to take off in many places, let alone 6g, which doesn't even have a standard yet.

This seems more like China is putting in a chip that doesn't yet have anything to connect to, so it'll default to whatever signal it can find (most likely 4g).

It’s not struggling to within the Chinese domestic market

Did not know that. Just did a search and you're right. Thanks.

I think you'd struggle to find anywhere in China without 5G - it's pretty universal.

Huawei is a negligent company that is now in serious financial trouble. The core tech they have been using is owned by the western companies that developed it. They undercut the competition by removing essential security features and utilizing multiple occupied bandwidths. They were also found guilty of multiple cases of fraud. Don't forget China supposedly had the world's largest real estate development company and largest coffee chain. Both were fabrications. Huawei lost access to western tech last year after refusing to address security and legal concerns. Their reported revenue from selling devices dropped 40% year over year. They aren't currently selling 5g devices. Their CEO acknowledged the company will be insolvent if they can't quickly find access to 5g chips, and their five year outlook is bleak.

China is going to be in a rough spot once they can’t steal technology from western companies any more.

>that's mainly because the west walled itself off from huawei, despite the company owning a majority of the global 5G marketshare

True... It'd be great to see 5G being more globally available.

>hilarious how westerners are now rejecting advancements in technologybecause they aren't the ones driving it anymore. who needs gigabitinternet nothing needs that much bandwidth anyway!!!

I'm from the US, and i totally agree with you. The west's desire for dominance is impeding with so much potential advancement. 5G was supposed to be widespread in the US by now, but so many things are trying to avoid it - particularly a lot of airports (this hinders major cities) and states (hinders entire regions).

I was thinking of getting a Xiaomi, and the units sold certainly are not far behind American brands. A lot of restrictions are being brought up in regards to imports from China, which is quite annoying.

Or just do what, iirc it was AT&T did: just display you're connected to 5g in the phone but it's not actually 5g 🙃

I still can't believe they got away with that.

It displayed 5Ge or something. 5G NR is an evolution on 4G LTE, so it might soorta make sense.

On Verizon, my phone (5g chip) will connect to 5g if there's even a single signal, which leads to terrible connections, and I can't manually change it to 4g unless there's no 5g signal.

Why not get a Samsung then, closest thing


Living-blech t1_jdp214a wrote

That is what I got instead of a Xiaomi. Privacy issues between the US and China were kicking up a lot around that time, so i went with a more local brand.

Authoritarianism is gross but central planning and one party rule is efficient at getting something done when it wants to.

With this 6g technology right now it is not even certain it has no negative short-, mid- and / or longterm health effects on humans, animals & nature; any idea why they step over this obstacle so easy?

Only because mr. Xi his “credit” & the claim he, Xi Jinping is a god; he thinks he can do this? That is no reason.

Because there are likely more Gods IF there is one.

Or is it just another “mistake” of another “world leader” being “used” to make society even increasingly ready for more & more robots, without (traditional) leaderships knowing what this entails exactly .. sailing along with presented (new) technology .. clearly (?)

Accepting big amounts of cash, promises & goals without really thinking about the side-effects of certain (6g) development, just wanting to be the first / most powerful on Earth.

I remember a time where people said there could be no such thing as 5G lol.
