HUAWEI Mate X Becomes World’s First Smartphone to Receive 5G CE Certification

The HUAWEI Mate X smartphone has now become the world’s first 5G smartphone approved in the European Union. The smartphone has received the first 5G CE certificate awarded by TÜV Rheinland, a global leader in independent inspection services, indicating that the phone smoothly passed the rigorous test and evaluation to become the world’s first 5G phone approved by EU.

According to Bruce Lee, Vice President of Handset Business of Huawei Consumer Business Group, 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 and thus 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.

As Huawei's first 5G smartphone, the HUAWEI Mate X is equipped with Huawei's most sophisticated technology and patents. It runs on the Balong 5000 chipset, which is the world’s first multi-mode 5G SoC with 7nm process, being able to support 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G with a single chip. The chip is the first to achieve the industry's benchmark in 5G peak download rate, offering 4.6 Gbps in Sub-6 GHz (low frequency band, 5G main frequency bands). The Balong 5000 is also the world’s first chipset to support SA and NSA simultaneously, with the ability to adapt to different hardware requirements and formats for users and telecom operators, making the HUAWEI Mate X the true 5G smartphone.

In addition, Huawei integrates four sets of 5G antennas with many cutting-edge technologies in the thin folding body of the Mate X. 5G signal transmission is smooth, strong and stable, and is completely ready for embracing the challenge of mass data transmission in 5G era.

TÜV Rheinland is responsible for the whole process of CE certification of Huawei 5G smartphones. CE certification is a necessary quality requirement of European Union on importing and selling products. It is also a mandatory identification to enter the European market. Commodities with CE certification indicate that they meet a series of directives such as wireless, safety, electromagnetic compatibility, health, environmental protection and consumer protection.

HUAWEI Mate X, which has passed the CE certification test this time, strictly abides by the rules and regulations during the whole development process no matter in device selection or design and development. Within the declared specifications, its radio frequency (RF), electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), safety and SAR, and other aspects can all meet the strict certification standards of CE.

The acquisition of the world's first 5G CE certificate for the smartphone has laid a solid foundation for the large-scale commercial use of 5G mobile phones in the future, and once again highlighted the leadership position of Huawei on 5G. The company will continue to actively promote the mature development of the 5G industry and provide consumers with real 5G experience and services.
