“If we have chosen to launch the NSA Network Smartphone, then we can launch our first 5G-enabled smartphone in the first half of 2019. Instead, we invested over USD100 million to develop devices that support both SA and NSA networks, ensuring that our users will experience the full benefits of 5G. This is the ultimate 5G solution, ”said Xiong.
