Tuesday, 6 July 2021

Chinese technology giant Huawei on Tuesday refutes reports that it is set to launch two test satellites for 6G technology verification in July.

The company tagged media reports of the launch of two satellites as "fake news," on its official account at China's twitter-like social media platform Sina Weibo on Tuesday.

The clarification comes after Huawei is reportedly set to launch two satellites together with Chinese network operator China Mobile and China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation in July with aims of taking the lead in the research and development (R&D) of 6G around the world.
