Sprint recently switched on 5G network in Atlanta, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, and Kansas City and among the 5G-ready devices the carrier has is the HTC 5G Hub.
This is an Android 9 Pie-powered smart hub that HTC hopes will serve as both a portable 5G hotspot and Android hub. This thing lets you install all your favorite Android apps from the Google Play Store and even play online games and stream videos. The smart hub also comes with a USB-C port on the back for connecting to a TV, allowing you to take advantage of the high-speed 5G network to stream high-quality 4K content.
Being an Android device, keeping it functionally sane requires regular software updates and the company is already rolling out the first OTA that bumps the version to 1.07.651.1.
According to the changelog, the update brings important system enhancements and bug fixes, but it doesn’t go into specifics. Sprint says the rollout begun last Friday, so you should have received the download notification by now.
Besides the HTC 5G Hub and LG V50 ThinQ, Sprint has also confirmed the Galaxy S10 5G will be available this summer. More 5G devices should start showing up towards the end of the year and in 2020.
