Huawei might have had a tough year and uncertain future ahead, but the company today reported some good news – it sold 200 million smartphones since the beginning of 2019. The impressive milestone was reached 64 days faster than in 2018, despite being a hostage in the negotiations between the United States and China.
The Chinese company already reported that the P30 lineup, announced in March, and the Mate 20 series that debuted last year have been outsold their predecessors.
Another reason the 200 million mark shouldn’t be a surprise is how steady Huawei is on the top position at its domestic market, where sales were also driven by a patriotic wave – users chose the maker to support it through the tough times.
However, Huawei CEO already admitted that the company is prepared for a 10% drop in annual income of the consumer business group. The Huawei Mate 30 lineup was unveiled on September 19 but is yet to arrive globally – over a month later it is mostly sold in China and a couple of other Asia Pacific markets.
