tech2 News Staff

Huawei has been subjected to a lot of pressure from the US blacklist a month back and it was assumed that the sales of the Chinese tech giant would take a major hit. However, new reports have indicated that instead of declining, the company sales have actually risen significantly.

As per a report by mobileworldlive, from the period of January to June, the company has pulled in increased revenue of 30 percent year-on-year. CEO Ren Zhengfei had earlier said that US restrictions would take $30 billion over the next two years. We will have to see if that holds true but these figures indicate that the company is doing well for itself.

The reason for the strong first-half growth appears to be due to the 50 5G commercial contracts that Huawei has signed with various countries and 28 more to come. The fast growth in the 5G segment is said to put up double-digit growth for Huawei's carrier division, the report quotes chairman Ken Hu as saying.

In more news related to Huawei, as formulated a partnership with Indian brand Micromax for selling its devices in the country. The partnership could also be beneficial to Micromax, which has steadily lost ground due to the emergence of Chinese players such as Oppo, Xiaomi and Vivo.
