Huawei BE3 Pro Wi-Fi 7 Router Hits Shelves – But Only 1000M Version Available Now

Huawei’s first foray into Wi-Fi 7 has officially arrived, with pre-sales now open for the BE3 Pro router priced at 399 RMB. However, only 1000M Ethernet port model is currently up for grabs – the higher-spec 2500M variant won’t ship until later. Should buyers hold off for future-proofed ports 2.5G?

Boasting quad-core Wi-Fi 7 tech, Huawei touts impressive wireless capabilities up to 3600 Mbps. By aggregating 2.4GHz and 5GHz channels, negotiated rates can supposedly hit 3570 Mbps downloads and 52% lower latency.

Esports players also get some love through dedicated gaming ports for optimized connectivity. And built-in HarmonyOS 4.0 enables smart home integrations like parental controls and game acceleration.

But here’s the catch: the 1000M Ethernet port seems glaringly outdated. Wi-Fi 7’s multi-gig capabilities risk getting bottlenecked without an ethernet backbone to match. Future devices with 2.5G wired ports won’t see full advantage.

So while 399RMB for bleeding-edge Wi-Fi 7 remains enticing, buyers hoping for future-proof specs face disappointment. Only the upcoming 499RMB 2500M port model promises harmony between wired and wireless speeds.

Still, kudos to Huawei for pushing Wi-Fi 7 forward in affordable consumer packages. We’re eager to benchmark real-world gains over Wi-Fi 7, HarmonyOS integration unlocks plenty of smart home potential.

But anyone buying in primarily for Wi-Fi 7’s low latency and blistering speed would do well to hold out for the 2.5G variant. Gimping multi-gig wireless behind outdated ports makes little sense in 2024. Here’s hoping supplies of the step-up model arrive soon!
