Huawei Consumer Business Group announced today that its sales of smartphones, wearables, tablets and PCs have increased by 81% from January 1st to May 31st 2019 YoY in the UAE despite ongoing tensions with the brand globally.

The P30 series has won over a large number of users thanks to its Leica Quad Camera, zoom, low-light photography performance, 4,200mAh battery and along with a powerhouse performance.

At present, Huawei's products and services are available in more than 170 countries, and are used by a third of the world's population, ranking second in the world in mobile phone shipments in Q1 2019 with a well-rounded portfolio targeting all segments and the only smartphone vendor at the top of the market that saw volumes grow during Q1 2019.

Huawei invests a significant amount of its annual sales revenue to research and development efforts, and has established 14 research centers around the world. According to EU Industrial R&D Investment (2018), Huawei ranked No.5 globally amongst top spending companies in R&D.
