Huawei has also launched its 5G foldable smartphone, the Mate X, at MWC 2019
Huawei and Vodafone Spain kicked off MWC 2019 with a bang on Sunday, as the pair showcased the world’s first 5G call over a 3GPP release 15 compliant network, using Huawei’s brand new 5G ready smartphone.
“Our message is that 5G is n in 2019! Let’s work together to move things forward,” Ryan Ding, CEO of Huawei’s Carrier Business Group, told journalists at Huawei’s MWC 2019 Day Zero event.
Both the smartphone used and the Vodafone 5G network meet 3GPP release 15 standards approved last year, making this the first truly end-to-end demonstration of the full 5G experience.
