Nokia 9 PureView released - Meet the new Nokia smartphone with five cameras

A global battle between the US government and Chinese tech company Huawei over allegations that it is a cybersecurity risk will overshadow the opening on Monday of the world's biggest mobile industry trade fair.

"The strategic challenge of China's place in the era of globalised technology is much bigger than just one telecommunications equipment company", Fleming, one of Britain's top three spies, said in Singapore.

USA officials suspect that Beijing could use the Shenzhen-based Huawei's products to spy on Western governments, and the company's presence in the United States has already been severely restricted.

Huawei also sought to reaffirm its position as one of the world's leading technology companies, unveiling a folding 5G smartphone to an audience of media and analysts in Barcelona.

Huawei has only a minimal presence in US networks, so a complete bar would not have the same impact there.

Washington considers the matter urgent as countries around the world prepare to roll out fifth-generation or 5G networks that will bring near-instantaneous connectivity, vast data capacity and futuristic technologies such as self-driving cars.

According to CNBC, Huawei now holds the leading position as the world's largest provider of telecommunications equipment.

The head of Vodafone, the world's second largest mobile operator, said Monday the United States needed to share any evidence it has about Huawei with European authorities so they can decide whether or not to use the Chinese firm's technology in their 5G networks.

This war was fought over Kashmir when Pakistani forces entered the princely state of Jammu and Kashmir. The attack is believed to be the worst against India's military since a rise in insurgency in 1989.

Trump tweeted last week that he wanted the U.S. to catch up in the 5G race through competition, "not by blocking out now more advanced technologies".

Huawei's rotating chairman, Guo Ping, told reporters on Sunday he was aware of the remarks.

"I have noticed the president's Twitter", said Guo.

"I have noticed the president's Twitter, he said that the USA needs faster and smarter 5G, or even 6G in the future, and he has realised that the U.S. is lagging behind in this respect, and I think his message is clear and correct", Guo said. "I think his message is clear and correct". An executive order to ban Huawei's 5G telecommunications equipment has reportedly been discussed among United States officials due to fears that the Chinese tech company could be connected to the Chinese government - a concern the company dismisses.

US allies in Europe are still making their minds up on allowing Huawei to participate in the 5G rollout and it's not clear if Washington's campaign is having an effect, with some viewing it as a calculation of technical risks rather than as part of a broader battle for tech supremacy between China and the U.S.

"We are getting more interest; there are concerns and also some uncertainty", Suri said in an interview with Bloomberg TV on Tuesday from MWC Barcelona, the telecom industry's biggest show.

Chinese Huawei prices its foldable Galaxy Fold at $1.980 while the Huawei Mate X is selling for $2,600. Germany officials have said there's no plan to explicitly bar any single manufacturer.
