The year kicked off with Samsung announcing that it was the brand that most 5G smartphones sold in 2019. It was just in the early days of the year that the South Korean giant reportedly shipped 6.7 million smartphones with the fastest mobile network.
Surprising or not, Huawei has just said it has hit this mark. Through a publication on the Weibo social network, Honor revealed that its parent brand has reached the 6.9 million shipments for 5G smartphones in 2019.
Remember that the portfolio of 5G devices that Huawei sells is already considerable. This one has the Mate 20 X 5G, the Mate 30 5G, the Mate 30 Pro 5G, the Mate 30 RS Porsche Design, the New 6 5G and the Mate X 5G. Because of the Honor sub brand, it still has the V30 and the V30 Pro 5G.
On the Samsung side, there is already the Galaxy S10 5G, Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ 5G, Galaxy Fold 5G and Galaxy A90 5G. Soon also will be released the Galaxy Tab S6 5G, which will be the first tablet in the market to have the technology.
It’s good to keep in mind that manufacturers embrace very disparate strategies. For one, Samsung has achieved this sales figures by having the devices for sale in various parts of the globe.
Huawei sales focus on China
Already on the Huawei side, the numbers become even more impressive if we notice that they come largely from the domestic market – China. The numbers seem to prove that despite the dispute with the United States, Huawei’s prominence in China will continue to guarantee it ‘a place in the sun’.
