Though deeper details are scarce, the MiFi 5G NR will feature 5G and 4G/LTE network compatibility, next-generation Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) hotspot capability, and both a gigabit ethernet port and USB-C for sharing via a wired connection.
It is also reportedly a "chunky monkey," physically twice as large as most current 4G/LTE hotspots. The device also lacks antenna ports since millimeter wave 5G antennas need to be internal to be physically extremely close to the Qualcomm X50 modem chipset.
Inseego, the hotspot's manufacturer, claimed they were seeing some pretty amazing results in their testing:
"The test results for Inseego’s 5G NR millimeter wave mobile device uniquely show outstanding performance in testing environments that consistently achieve over 2 Gbps of speed and sub-10 milliseconds of latency in multiple component carrier aggregation(CA) scenarios."
Device pricing and plan details are not currently available. Device and plan availability is slated for "2019".
