In the initially half of 2019, Huawei will release 5G smartphones equipped with 5G chips and will achieve commercial scale in the second half of 2019. When asked When it comes Huawei’s position on the international 5G track, Liang Hua replied “Huawei has participated in dozens of commercial tests of 5G networks around the world. The test data reveals that Huawei’s current technology maturity is at least 12 months ahead of other companies in the industry”.
At the Global Mobile Broadband Forum in London, last month, British Telecom (BT) executives said, “There is only one real 5G supplier, and that is Huawei .” Having said that, Huawei yet faces a large amount of criticism from certain countries notably the United States which believes that using Huawei’s 5G equipment poses a threat to national security. Other countries like Austrailia, Fresh Zealand, Czech Republic, and others share this ideology.
