Always liked the Mate series more than the P series.
Sad to see Huawei's market share falling outside of China.

Maybe they should reduce their prices by at least 30% ... if they want to sell.

I actually feel bad for Huawei. I like their phones, but I'm relying heavily on google apps, and to make things worse some other apps that rely on Google services, like Uber using GMaps won't even work on Huawei phones :(

As expected. Anyway I'm one of the person will buy the Mate 40. 😝

P40 sales probably dropped 30% so they expect the same for Mate 40. Still not a bad result imo. A lesser company would have folded.

Mugambo is happy

Exactly; without Google services onboard, this is gonna be a tough sell in Europe. There’s a lot of competition to choose from; Huawei has no selling arguments for our market, I don’t think.

70% Huawei sales already comes from China, So they are expecting all the sales coming from China, makes sense because outside China people aren't buying these. Not without google services.

In France "To understand this phenomenon, we compared smartphone sales by price brackets. The addition is salty for Huawei, the Chinese brand, whose high-end smartphones represented 6,6% of the device market of over 800 euros in 2019 now weighs … less than 1%."
