During the Huawei MatePad Pro launch event today, Huawei Consumer Business Group CEO Richard Yu announced that the company had shipped over 7 million smartphones from the Mate 30 series globally.
This staggering figure was achieved within a short span of 60 days after the Mate 30 series made it’s official debut. In comparison to the Mate 20 series, this figure equates to a 75% growth during the same 60 days window.
The company’s latest milestone was achieved despite having a limited launch in the global market due to the ongoing US trade ban. Outside of China, only select markets including Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan and Philippines had officially launched the device.

- It’s official! Huawei receives another 90-day license extension from the US
- Good news! Huawei may get an additional 6-month extension to roll out software updates and patches
However, it’s strong domestic demand has helped to cushion the impact of the plummeting smartphone sales in the global market. A recent report by Canalys has revealed that Huawei had seen a 66% year-on-year growth in the Chinese market during Q3 2019.
In the global market, Huawei had also recorded a 28.2% year-on-year growth during Q3 2019 as their smartphone shipments surged from 52 million to 66.6 million.
This figure will no doubt be higher if not of the ongoing US trade ban. Despite that, Huawei remains optimistic for it’s future as the firm hopes to ship 20 million smartphones from the Mate 30 series.
