Huawei has had a tough year but things could be looking up.


The Chinese technology firm was hit by a US blacklisting earlier in the year which left it unable to work with firms such as Google.


This block had raised real concerns about how Huawei would address not being able to receive vital Android updates from the US software firm but these problems don’t appear to have hit sales.

Huawei has had a tough year but things could be looking up. The Chinese technology firm was hit by a US blacklisting earlier in the year which left it unable to work with firms such as Google. This block had raised real concerns about how Huawei would address not being able to receive vital Android updates from the US software firm but these problems don’t appear to have hit sales.

That’s earlier than when Huawei reached the same volume last year.

Sales of the new P30 series have also been strong with 10 million units sold in 85 days after its launch. That’s 62 days less than that for P20 series to hit the same target.

With all the drama surrounding the brand, this news may come as surprise but consumers clearly like what Huawei is making.

Speaking about the news, Anson Zhang, Managing Director of Huawei Consumer Business Group UK, said “We will always put our consumers first, regardless of the challenges we face and this announcement demonstrates the continued confidence in Huawei from customers and partners.

“We also have a responsibility to make it clear to consumers that nothing has changed and we are confident about the future, and will always ensure our consumers enjoy the best possible experience on their Huawei devices.”

“We are grateful to our millions of loyal consumers in the UK – and we will soon welcome millions more.”

As well as announcing these latest sales figures, Huawei has now revealed its next big phone release.

The Mate 20 X (5G) has just gone on sale in the UK with Three, Sky Mobile and Carphone Warehouse all stocking it. This device is fully compatible with the next generation of mobile technology which means it can access data speeds that exceed 300Mbps.

Not only will the Mate 20 X (5G) bring very quick downloads but it also features a giant 7.2-inch OLED screen, triple rear camera and 4,200mAh battery. There’s also a fast Huawei Kirin 980 processor, SuperCharge refill option and rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. It arrives in Emerald Green (Dual Sim) and will set you back £999.
