ZTE has announced that they are suspending their operations because of the US Export ban against China.
See this article for further information:
The WFA had already suspended ZTE's membership last week, due to the export ban.
It should be noted that ZTE has over 1,100 certified devices in the WFA database ! According to the WFA announcement, ZTE will not be able to receive any new certifications, or get any certification testing completed until this suspension is lifted. However, their certified products and certifications are still visible on the WFA product search web page.
