Sales of Huawei smartphones increased by more than 20%, despite the sanctions

During the first half of 2019, Huawei worked steadily and even counted on a record, despite

the problems she faced. It turned out that sales of their smartphones have increased significantly.

No matter what

The latest data show that in the firsthalf of 2019, 118 million smartphones were sold, that is, 59 million devices every three months. As a result, total revenue for the half year amounted to 220.8 billion yuan ($ 32 billion).

Huawei's revenue was 146.5 billion yuan ($ 21 billion). In addition, the company reported an increase in sales of its other devices, such as tablets, PCs and watches, but did not go into details.

Losses will still be

Huawei executive Ren Zhengfei calculated that the ban would cost the company $ 30 billion over two years.

“Given the foundation we laid in the firsthalf of the year, we continue to observe growth even after we were added to the black list. This does not mean that we have no difficulties ahead. They exist and can affect our growth in the short term, ”said Liang Hua, Huawei Chairman.

And some difficulties really arose - Huawei and Google had to abandon joint projects due to US sanctions.
