It appears Huawei isn’t really deterred by the recent sanctions from Washinton, as the firm keeps making moves to gain more grounds in international markets. A couple of years after it ceased Operations in Brazil, Huawei recently announced a comeback with the launch of the Huawei P30 in Brazil – the 4th largest smartphone market in the World, and one that is predicted to see an increase in device sales for 2019 and the mobile segment will be the main area of growth for the Brazilian information and communications technology (ICT) sector, according to analyst firm IDC.
Marking its return to the Brazilian market, Huawei Mobile earlier this week held a flash sale for its two recent premium Smartphones – the Huawei P30 Lite and Huawei P30 Pro. Huawei announced that its devices will be available via major carriers as well as via major Brazilian retailers to ensure its devices get to the hands of more Huawei fans. Both devices will first go on sale via Magazine Luiza, Via Varejo, B2W, Fast Shop as well as wireless carrier Telefonica Brasil, and later expands to more retailers.
