Huawei Just Confirmed That It's Bringing a Foldable Phone to MWC

The world's largest telecommunications equipment manufacturer is at the center of a drawn-out political storm, with many countries' security agencies warning of the potential for Chinese intelligence using its products as a spying conduit, and the company being hit by accusations of sanctions-busting.

The firm has successfully rolled out over 30 5G field trials across 17 Chinese provinces, with speeds that are 97 times faster than current 4G signals, said Huawei's vice-president of wireless network Yang Chaobin. "Vodafone and Huawei are long-term strategic partners that have worked together since 2007", said a spokesman by email.

Huawei chief finance officer Meng Wanzhou was also arrested in Canada in December on allegations of violating USA sanctions against Iran, which she and Huawei have sharply condemned. Huawei has denied wrongdoing. "It's only politics guys which are trying to put pressure on us".


Mr Yu said he expects 2019 to be another banner year for Huawei as 5G begins to be rolled out across the world. "I believe at the earliest this year, and next year at the latest". Growth in stark contrast to growth is in stark contrast to the market in which Huawei is found, given that the total number of smartphones sold worldwide has fallen by 3%. At the launch, the CEO of Huawei - Yu Chengdong has also announced that Huawei's 5G foldable mobile will also be released at the upcoming MWX 2019 scheduled in February this year. Dubbed the Balong 5000, Mr Yu has claimed it's the world's most powerful 5G modem.

Chinese telecommunications hardware giant Huawei said it could become the world's largest seller of smartphones in 2019, without the help of the US market and despite growing security concerns.

Huawei uses its own chipsets in its high-end phones and servers but said it does not intend to become a standalone chip vendor to rival the likes of Qualcomm and Intel Corp. This now 5G base station is smaller and also more integrated.
