Huawei has unveiled the Huawei Mobile WiFi Prime E5878. Sporting an elegant, refined design, it is billed as the world’s thinnest LTE mobile WiFi. Delivering download speeds of up to 150 Mbps and connectivity for up to 10 devices, Huawei Prime is the perfect grab and go pocketspot.

“Huawei Prime features a new minimalist design to make it the latest must-have fashion statement for style conscious young social networkers and tech lovers,” said Liang Qinghai, Senior Industrial Designer, Mobile Broadband and Home Devices, Huawei Consumer Business Group. “As a leader in mobile broadband, delivering next-generation LTE networks, Huawei has launched a new chapter in the mobile broadband landscape with Huawei Prime’s outstanding design language. It is the perfect companion to keep you connected in style.”


Applying Nano Molding Technology (NMT), which combines metal with polymer into a seamless material, Huawei Prime is slimmer than other 4G mobile WiFi hotspots on the market at 7.5mm, the equivalent of five credit cards stacked on top of each other. It is so compact and portable at 109.5mm long and 58mm wide that it can be easily slid into a pocket or bag to stay connected on-the-go, making it ideal for small and home office business professionals. The utilization of NMT in Huawei Prime also means a stronger, highly crack resistant mobile WiFi with reduced environmental impact – all essentials for the modern mobile age.

Huawei Prime’s elegant and refined look is the result of detailed craftsmanship and superior-grade aluminum materials. Molding of the aluminum case involves 26 rounds of crafting and four layers of ink printing along with anodized sandblasting and CNC diamond cutting technology. Huawei Prime also incorporates symmetrical dual lenses for its OLED screen, which in addition to being scratch and crack resistant, are integrated seamlessly with the metal to present a dazzling, polished feel.

Huawei Prime features ‘press and play’ functionality from a five second start up. Effortlessly connect to WiFi with Huawei Prime and enjoy wireless connectivity for up to 10 WiFi-enabled devices at once with a range of 100 meters, perfect for an impromptu staff meeting. Its minimalist 0.96-inch OLED screen displays how many devices it is connected to, how many text messages have been sent or received, and most importantly, how much data has been used while connected to ensure data allowance is not exceeded. A handy full micro-USB cable slot is cleanly tucked into the lower bottom right corner which can be used to connect the hotspot to a PC as a modem or storage device for any files that are too large for a smartphone.

So quick it even outpaces some home connections, Huawei Prime runs on a HiSilicon A9 dual-core chipset and provides lightning fast LTE Cat4 connectivity with industry-leading speeds of 150 Mbps. It even includes two antennas, one on each end of the device, to ensure the strength of the connection is maintained no matter which end is being held.

Use Huawei Prime to stay online for up to 8 hours of use in LTE mode or 380 hours of standby time provided by the 1900 mAh battery. What’s more, all of these features can be controlled remotely by a smartphone using the ‘Huawei Mobile WiFi’ application available to download via major app stores.

Huawei Prime comes in white and black, and will be available in Europe, Middle East, and other markets from mid-September. Customized versions including sunny gold, peach pink or turquoise green, with polka dot or diamond texture effects, will also be available in selected markets.
