Bruce Lee, Vice President of Handset Business of Huawei Consumer Business Group said at the awarding ceremony,
Compared with the previous generation of communication technology and products, 5G technology and product forms are more complex. 5G certification testing standards and equipment still rely on continuous improvement. It is an unprecedented challenge to evaluate 5G smartphones. Through the collaboration of Huawei and TÜV Rheinland teams, the two sides have made significant breakthroughs in many key certification technologies.

In the future, Huawei will continue to work with TÜV Rheinland to work together on the research of communication product certification technology and promote the scale of 5G terminals for commercial use.
