E5878's frame is just 7.5 mm thin, which is 45% more slender than standard mobile Wi-Fi devices. It's also only 58 mm wide.

A Hisilicon A9 dual-core chipset provides high speed and performance. Coupled with the latest, most advanced technology such as Cat4 LTE-A which takes your downloading speeds to 150 Mbps, you now spend less time waiting and a lot more time playing.

Huawei's patented power saving technology means a high capacity cell battery, giving you an additional 40% energy boost. The battery packs 1900 mAh of power and runs for 8 hours on continuous use and over 380 hours on standby.

A sleek aluminum cover enhances the reliability of the Prime by providing a cooling function. So even with frequent use in warm environments, your Prime still looks and stays cool.

You can connect the E5878 with the USB interface of a computer, or connect the E5878 with the Wi-Fi. In the service area of the LTE FDD/DC-HSPA+/HSPA+/HSPA/UMTS or EDGE
/GPRS/GSM network, you can surf the Internet and send/receive messages/emails cordlessly.

The E5878 allows you to access the Internet via LTE/3G or Wi-Fi. When you are
using the E5878 in areas with a Wi-Fi hotspot, for example, an airport, a cafe, a
hotel, or your home, the E5878 switches to Wi-Fi connection automatically, saving your LTE/3G network traffic fees.
