Huawei claims it sold one million Mate 30 units in three hours

The Huawei Mate 30 series appear to be a huge hit in China. 

Since the phones hit retail shelves in China last Thursday, Huawei claims that it sold one million units in just three hours! While there is no way to verify the figures, photos taken at Huawei's new Shenzhen flagship store show long queue lines. In addition, stock on Chinese e-commerce site is currently out. Demand is likely exceeding supply as imported units in Hong Kong are selling at a mark up of over HK$1,500. 

International sales of the Mate 30 series have not begun as the company would like to resolve the Google issue first. Huawei plans to fight the long battle with a US$1 billion war chest to attract developers to build apps around its own HarmonyOS ecosystem. For the time being, Richard Yu - the CEO of Huawei's consumer business unit - is confident that local demand will drive sales of more than 20 million units.
