The new Huawei Mate 30 family has been revealed to be shrouded in controversy, but that doesn't seem to be affecting its popularity. According to Huawei's own data, 1 million copies of the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro have been sold.
The new tops of the Chinese company hit Chinese stores on September 26 and their popularity is on the rise. Something that can be seen in the queue outside Huawei's flagship store in Shenzhen, China.

Given this data, Huawei has sold around 100,000 units per minute of its new tops. Obviously these data refer only to China, Huawei's home market.
Absence of Google services doesn't worry consumers
Chinese consumers are not in the least concerned about the absence of Google services in the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro. In fact, all smartphones sold in the world's largest market arrive without the services of the American company.
The absence of the Google Mate 30 services is no problem for most of our readers either. In our recent survey, we found that more than half of respondents would buy this smartphone, even without Youtube, Gmail, Google Search and more.
In addition, the sanctions imposed by Donald Trump on Huawei appear to have aroused a sense of patriotism among Chinese consumers. Something that has resulted in a sales increase in China that outperforms all the competition.
According to Canalys data, Huawei reported a 31% increase in sales in the second quarter of the year compared to the same period of 2018. This translates into sales of 37.3 million smartphones between April and June this year alone.
Despite setbacks, Huawei is optimistic about the success of the Mate 30
Shortly after the introduction of the Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro, the brand's CEO revealed quite optimistic expectations for the future of this line. Richard Yu believes he will be able to sell 20 million copies this year alone.
Yu was realistic enough to admit that China will play a major role in this. Also because it is not known when these smartphones will arrive in Europe.
We can then say that the belief that Richard Yu has placed in his consumers has been reciprocated. The numbers advanced today are fantastic, but there is still a long way to go before the expected results are achieved.
