According to the Chinese press, Huawei has marketed 12 million copies of its high-end Mate 30 series smartphones worldwide. This corresponds to an increase of 5 million mobiles compared to the last figure published by the Chinese firm.
With the Mate 30, Huawei has made a bet. Not in China, where the firm is winning consumer confidence. But internationally. The situation in which the firm finds itself is far from being very favorable. The embargo imposed by the United States prevents integrate Google ecosystem in its new smartphones, including versions for Europe. The Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro, tested here, are not the first victims, but they are clearly the most symbolic.
However, the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro have found their audience. According to the Chinese press, which cites information from the Associated Press agency, Huawei said it had sold more than 12 million copies of the Mate 30 series (composed of the Mate 30, the Mate 30 Pro and the Mate 30 Porsche Design). This figure does not relate to Chinese sales, but to global sales. This means that it includes sales in Europe, and therefore in France where it was launched at the very beginning of December. Obviously, the distribution between China and the rest of the world is not specified.
5 million more in a month
This new figure is obviously to compare with the one that Richard Yu, head of the consumer division of Huawei, presented at the end of November at the press conference to launch the Mate Pad Pro. Sales of the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro then reached the bar of 7 million mobile phones distributed. Smartphones were then available in China, the Philippines, New Zealand, Australia and Spain.

The bar of the 7 million sold mobile was exceeded in 60 days, according to Richard Yu. Either 3.5 million phones sold per month on average. It was unclear whether the majority of sales were made in October or November. Given the commercial news (especially Single Day), it seems logical that November was more important. 30 days later this figure would therefore have increased by 5 million units. This implies that sales increased very strongly in December.
According to the Chinese press, the pace of sales Mate Mate 30 and 30 Pro today still continue to increase, assuming a good month of January (with the Chinese New Year in sight). We are, however, still far from the goal of Richard Yu hoping to surpass the 20 million smartphones sold in this series. Or another 8 million units to distribute. Especially since these phones are relatively expensive. And that the lack of Google services is very penalizing commercially outside of China.
