As one of the top three smartphone companies globally and number one in China, UAE remains a key growth market for Huawei globally. 

“Huawei CBG has been committed to the UAE and the Middle East for over fifteen years and has shipped over 66 million smartphones to the region. In fact, our success in the region and the UAE specifically, is representative of UAE supporting innovative and successful enterprises from China.

“Our market share in the MEA has increased by 31.25%, this is only an indication of our strong performance this year and our steady growth in the region,” added Jiao.

In addition, Huawei CBG's market share in the UAE is at 20%. The company also reported exceptional growth through a rapid increase in smartphone shipments in H1 2018. Huawei is number 79 on the Forbes Most Valuable Brands in the World, representing Chinese innovation, leadership and success globally.

“Huawei CBG's growth is a result of its innovative technology and its dedication to constantly improving the user experiences of its consumers through its outstanding product features,” says Jiao.

Company's another breakthrough product HUAWEI P20 Pro offer world's first 40 megapixel Leica® triple camera that is enhanced with AI scene recognition to capture perfect images in the night or low light scenarios.
