Enjoying fast mobile data speeds thru 5G wireless technology is currently a luxury that only a few can afford. But that may change with the launch of the Hisense F50.

You may have heard of Hisense as a TV manufacturer, but it makes smartphones too. The Hisense F50 is the company’s first 5G smartphone, which uses a 5G chipset not by your usual Qualcomm, MediaTek or Intel but by Chinese company Unisoc (formely Spreadtrum), whose other chips are installed in devices such as the Lenovo A7, Nokia C2 and LG W10. Specifically, running inside the Hisense F50 is the eight-core Unisoc T7510, which features both standalone and non-standalone dual-mode 5G. The chip can also switch seamlessly between 5G and 4G.


The Hisense F50 is not a premium phone, but it does have decent specs: 5010mAh battery, 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. Its display measures 6.52 inches and features a waterdrop notch housing a selfie cam. The phone also has a rear-facing, HDR-capable, quad-camera module whose main lens boasts a 48-megapixel resolution. The Hisense F50 also uses an 18-watt fast charging tech, back-mounted fingerprint scanner, and a PowerVR GM9446 GPU.

HiSense F50 is currently available in China for a price of 2,199 yuan, or approximately Php15,800 in today’s exchange.
