Huawei is said to be working on a case that will allow the 4G P50 series to access 5G networks

Something similar has been released before. Back in 2018, the Motorola Z3 was launched and while it was an initial 4G phone, a 5G Moto Mod magnetic attachment was glued to the back of the phone It allowed it to communicate with Verizon’s 28GHz mmWave 5G waves (which means finding a 5G signal was like finding a needle in a haystack.
