Huawei's Q2 saved as patriotic Chinese boost local sales

Ivan, 06 August 2019

Since the US put Huawei on a blacklist back in May, the company has been struggling everywhere but in China, where combined with its sub brand Honor it captured 46.1% of the market.

Huawei has enjoyed a number 1 position in China for some time and according to a report by the WSJ local companies are going the extra mile to try and boost its sales during its current struggles.

One such company is Xinye Lubricating Oil based in Puyang, which is awarding a CNY 500 (€65) vouchers to any employee that switches from an iPhone to a Huawei device.

Another is Days Hotel & Suites in Changsha that offers a reward of CNY 200 (€25) to any employee that is using a Huawei phone. It sees the US ban on Huawei as "an alert and resistance to the growing strength of China's innovation".

And while some companies have managed to find a way to restart their business with Huawei, its main focus has been on getting back its Android license, which would hopefully happen soon.
