Huawei flags 5G smartphone coming to MWC

Vodafone 'pauses' use of Huawei equipment over security concerns

This runs contrary to the approach taken by the U.S., Australia and New Zealand, who have banned even those uses for Huawei equipment. Huawei has said the allegation is unfounded. It has been queued up to the moment when Huawei CEO Richard Yu makes the announcement about the foldable 5G phone.

Huawei has confirmed that it will show off the world's first 5G smartphone with a foldable screen at MWC 2019 at the end of February.

The move by Vodafone follows a decision by BT Group Plc to rip Huawei gear out of the core of its mobile network in the U.K. Deutsche Telekom AG has said it's reviewing its purchasing strategy in light of the concerns over Huawei and Orange SA has said it won't start using Huawei in its business in France.

Meanwhile, Reuters reported Thursday that many usa universities - including the University of California at Berkeley and UC San Diego - are removing Huawei equipment and shunning its cash. United Kingdom -based Vodafone, one of the world's biggest mobile carriers, uses Huawei in the core of its Spanish network and some other smaller markets, Read said.

Canadian envoy to China John McCallum also stated that the Huawei CFO had "quite good arguments on her side", namely the "political involvement by comments from Donald Trump in her case".

Ariana Grande Has Been Called Out Over 7 Rings Track
Okayplayer music editor Ivie Ani noted that Nokia's argument seems to be "more about the hair lyric/content than the flow". Grande reportedly went out with her friends to a jewellery store and bought seven engagement rings for them.

Carriers are becoming wary of expanding their ties to Huawei amid a US -led crackdown on the largest telecom-equipment supplier.

Vodafone's Chief Executive Nick Read said on Friday that the Huawei debate was playing out at a "too simplistic level", adding that it was an important player in an equipment market dominated by three companies.

A Huawei spokesperson said: "Vodafone and Huawei are long-term strategic partners that have worked together since 2007".

Shares in Vodafone fell after it reported a deterioration in its key revenue measure in the third quarter, down 40 basis points quarter-on-quarter to 0.1 per cent, reflecting price competition in Spain and Italy and a slowdown in South Africa.

But he said the signs of improvement underpinned confidence in Vodafone's full-year guidance.
