One of the surprises from the OnePlus Cloud 11 launch event is the OnePlus Hub 5G router. This is the company’s first router product. OnePlus appears to be expanding its product portfolio beyond smartphones quite aggressively this year. Although Jio introduced Air Fiber when 5G was launched, it is still not available to end users.
OnePlus Hub 5G Router Features
- Wi-Fi 6 connectivity
- Support 5G/4G SIM card
- Home Hub with Matter protocol support
- Home mesh network by connecting 2 or more routers
- LED indicators for 5G, 4G and WiFi network activity
- Power LED
Launch date and price of the OnePlus Hub 5G router
The product was just teased at the event and full specs will be shared at a later date. It will be launched in the market in July 2023. This product will compete with the Jio Air Fiber Router which was introduced during the launch of Jio 5G. Jio has not shared any details on market availability so far after the reveal in August 2022.
5G or CPE router market is expected to grow in India as 5G rollout will reach users in many more cities in 2023 and 2024. Airtel and Jio have launched 5G services across India but the focus has been put on 5G smartphones so far. Currently, there are no routers in the Indian market that support 5G networks on Jio or Airtel. We can expect the focus to be on fixed wireless access or 5G broadband later this year.
