Huawei P50 Pro is the fist one to get 5G cover


2 min read

Huawei has been facing many problems for about 3 years. They are caused by American bans and restrictions. One of them is the inability of the Chinese company to use American technology, which in direct consequence means the inability to use 5G chips for smartphones. Still, Huawei seems to have solved this problem in a great way. But the question is what kind of solution will be shown in practice.

About two months ago, information emerged that Huawei could soon introduce a 5G cover for the phone. The Chinese company did that today. Yes, the 5G mask for the Huawei P50 Pro has been introduced!

This case, or cover for the phone, is manufactured by Soyealink and is currently only supported for the Huawei P50 Pro. Assume that Huawei first wants to see what the reactions of users will be to this add-on, so if it turns out that the reactions are positive, it is expected that the Chinese company will order cases from Soyealinka, ie covers for some of its smartphones.

This case, mask or holster, as we can call it by various names, costs 800 CNY in China, which is about 115 EUR. Quite an expensive addition, but if someone really wants to own a Huawei P50 Pro and have 5G support, this will not be a big problem.


The case has an eSIM that comes with a 5G modem and a basic dual-core 1.35 GHz CPU, but the settings of the eSIM and other things are done over the phone. Also, the case has a signal strength indicator that appears in the status bar.

The case is about 3.2 mm thick and weighs 52 grams. It is currently available in only one color – light gray. It communicates and is powered by the phone via USB, while its own USB-C cases can be used for charging, including support for SuperCharge.

It is unclear whether this add-on will arrive outside of China, but as the Huawei P50 Pro is available in Europe, it is to be expected.
