Despite sanctions, Huawei is predicting record sales this year.

After the US blacklisted Huawei and introduced appropriate sanctions, many rushed

"Bury" the Chinese company. But now the dispute with America has been settled, and the results of this year may turn out to be not so bad for the manufacturer.

How much will sell

According to forecasts of Min-Chi Kuo (Ming-Chi Kuo), sales of Huawei smartphones this year will be a record. The analyst predicts 250, or even 260 million gadgets sold.

True, if Huawei reconnects withGoogle Corporation, and the company's smartphones will be delivered with its services. But Min-Chi Kuo says that Huawei will return the rights to use Google software by the end of July.

But even if this does not happen - the analystpredicts 230 million smartphones sold per year, and this is still the maximum number. Recall that last year Huawei managed to sell a little more than 200 million devices, and this year because of the sanctions, it was predicted to be 50-60 million less.

Despite the bans in the States, sales in the home market - in China - have risen sharply. In addition, the company has restored the previous sales of budget models in the international market.

Therefore, perhaps, Huawei’s plans to conquer the smartphone market should not be forgotten, and Samsung shouldn’t write off the Chinese competitor.
