Good on them for keeping up business despite these crazy times.
Huawei Technologies announced last week at the Nova 5 launch event held in Wuhan, China, that as of May 30, 2019, the company has shipped more than 100 million products worldwide.
2019 has been a rather rough year for the tech company, following the ban ordered by Washington less than two months ago. Even the company’s own founder and CEO, Ren Zhengfei, admitted last week that the US ban could cost a drop of up to $30 billion in revenue this year, as Huawei smartphone sales have already decreased by 40% outside of China.
Despite this, Huawei still remains optimistic about its current situation. And while it did postpone the official announcement of its own foldable device, the Mate X, the company assures consumers that it will still be released later this year, after everything has been smoothed out. Many are speculating that this move was made to avoid what happened to rival company Samsung with its initial release of the Samsung Galaxy Fold.
As for Huawei’s latest smartphone, the Nova 5, the device is powered by the Chinese tech giant’s latest 7-nanometer chipset HiSilicon Kirin 810. The more expensive version, the Nova 5 Pro, has the Kirin 980 processor that is also found in Huawei’s P30 Pro and Mate 20.
