Recognition by leading Chinese publication underscores Qorvo’s continuing success in world’s largest smartphone market

    GREENSBORO, NC – July 10, 2018 – Qorvo® (Nasdaq:QRVO), a leading provider of innovative RF solutions that connect the world, today announced that the Qorvo RF Flex™ Gen-5 Portfolio has won the 2017 Best Mobile Solution award from Electronic Engineering & Product World (EEPW), a leading Chinese electronics publication. This is Qorvo’s third consecutive EEPW award, reflecting continuing leadership in providing products and technology to smartphone manufacturers in China.

    RF Flex Gen-5 is tailored for the high-volume mid-tier smartphone segment, and delivers industry-leading power output, linearity and ultra-low insertion loss across low-, medium- and high-frequency bands. This maximizes performance headroom, helping smartphone makers meet challenging uplink and downlink carrier aggregation (CA) requirements.

    “Mid-tier smartphones comprise the majority of handset sales in Asia and across the globe,” said Phil Solis, Research Director, Connectivity and Smartphone Semiconductors at IDC. “RF front-end solutions that meet performance requirements and reduce the costs of designing for regional variations can give smartphone OEMs an advantage in this highly competitive market.”  

    Eric Creviston, President of Qorvo’s Mobile Products Group, said: “Leading smartphone manufacturers have adopted our highly scalable, versatile RF Flex products as they seek to enter new markets and meet new regional carrier aggregation and band specifications. RF Flex Gen-5 dramatically reduces time to market by allowing manufacturers to quickly reconfigure mid-tier handset designs to enter new markets.”
