Huawei claims they sold more 5G smartphones in 2019 than Samsung
Earlier this year, Samsung revealed that it had shipped 6.7 million 5G phones in 2019, accounting for a total of 53.9% of global 5G phone shipments. The company offered a total of five 5G phones last year, including the Galaxy S10 5G, Galaxy Note 10 5G, Galaxy Note 10+ 5G, Galaxy Fold 5G, and the Galaxy A90 5G. This made Samsung the largest supplier of 5G smartphones in the world. However, Huawei begs to differ.
The Chinese smartphone manufacturer, despite facing trouble in the US, claims to have shipped 6.9 million 5G smartphones as of December 2019. The company offered a total of eight 5G smartphones last year, including the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G, Mate 30 5G, Porsche Design Mate 30 RS, Mate 20 X (5G), Nova 6 5G, Mate X, Honor V30 Pro, and the Honor V30. Even though the company offered more 5G smartphones than Samsung, managing to outsell the Korean giant is no small feat for Huawei especially when it struggled to launch new phone models with GMS. However, Huawei hasn’t disclosed a breakdown of which markets it sold the most 5G smartphones in, which leads us to believe that a majority of its sales come from China.
Along with the staggering number of smartphones sold by the company, Huawei also offered the full spectrum of 5G technologies, including 5G infrastructure technology, 5G network equipment, 5G chipsets, and 5G end-user devices.
