While Huawei is still fighting Washington over allegations of national security which got the Chinese company banned in the United States, Huawei maintains its strong position on the smartphone market, being the second largest manufacturer.
Despite the U.S. efforts, Huawei managed to sign 40 commercial 5G contracts with carriers worldwide. It also shipped more than 70,000 5G base stations, and is expecting this number to grow to 100,000 by May.
