Huawei claims the top spot in the European Patent Office (EPO) ranking for 2019. In a recent report published by the EPO, Huawei has been ranked as the top telecom company in Europe. Ranked with a maximum number of patients in 2019. The company ranking reflects the growing importance of digital technologies and Huawei’s leadership in the tech-innovation on a global scale.

The report recorded as many as 3,524 patents last year, by Huawei, followed by other industry giants viz. Samsung, LG, United Technologies and Seimens in the top five. Two-thirds of Huawei’s applications were in the field of digital communications. This includes the next generation of wireless communications know as 5G and AI. Adding to the insights, the top 10 comprises four companies from Asia; four from Europe and two from the US. Huawei’s rise to the top is hinged on the company’s huge investment in R&D, which is reflected in the number of patent applications. In 2019, Huawei is estimated to have invested more than 15 billion Euro in R&D. Huawei keeps investing 10%-15% of its annual revenue in R&D.

Huawei also has been at the forefront of many innovations. It is the first company to introduce features like reverse wireless charging, onboard AI, advanced camera. Also, popularized the triple rear camera setup and then moving up to four and also upgraded the telephoto lens to a periscope lens. Huawei is the first brand to have 7nm Dual Neural Processor Unit (NPU) chipset. It is the world’s first chipset in the size clocking at 2.8GHz, as well as supporting LTE Cat.19 connectivity allowing download speeds up to 1.6Gbps. It also made gradient color design mainstream.

By 2015, Huawei Consumer BG had more than 9000 global patent applications, including more than 2000 patents obtained in China and 1100 in overseas areas like Europe, America, and other regions. Huawei’s top priority is R&D investment and cutting edge innovation, which results in glowing reviews of the products line up across the world.
