Dubai, United Arab Emirates – 19 July, 2018:   Huawei Consumer Business Group (CBG), the global smartphone giant, continues to share the UAE's vision to constantly innovate and provide cutting-edge technology to ease consumers' daily lives. As one of the top three smartphone companies globally and number one in China, UAE remains a key growth market for Huawei globally. 

“Huawei CBG has been committed to the UAE and the Middle East for over fifteen years and has shipped over 66 million smartphones to the region. In fact, our success in the region and the UAE specifically, is representative of UAE supporting innovative and successful enterprises from China. We, as a brand, are aligned to the UAE's national vision for innovation,” said Mr. Gene Jiao, President of Huawei CBG, Middle East & Africa.

China is one of the leading innovation hubs in the world and with Huawei CBG marking its number one market share in China and number three worldwide; it clearly mirrors the representation of a successful Chinese enterprise operating globally.

In 2017 Huawei climbed up to the 83rd place from the 129th with a revenue of $78.51 billion, making the top global 100 in the Fortune 500 list, which has become an important indicator that renowned companies use to measure their own strengths, size and international competitiveness, a parameter of global economy that transcends beyond borders, nationality and cultural differences.

“Our market share in the MEA has increased by 31.25%, this is only an indication of our strong performance this year and our steady growth in the region,” added Jiao.

In addition, Huawei CBG's market share in the UAE is at 20%. The company also reported exceptional growth through a rapid increase in smartphone shipments in H1 2018. Huawei is number 79 on the Forbes Most Valuable Brands in the World, representing Chinese innovation, leadership and success globally.

“Huawei CBG's growth is a result of its innovative technology and its dedication to constantly improving the user experiences of its consumers through its outstanding product features,” says Jiao. 

With consumer centric approach, Huawei leads Artificial Intelligence chipsets in smartphone industry and has launched world's first processor with built-in AI chipset - Kirin 970 in HUAWEI Mate 10 Series. Company's another breakthrough product HUAWEI P20 Pro offer world's first 40 megapixel Leica® triple camera that is enhanced with AI scene recognition to capture perfect images in the night or low light scenarios. HUAWEI P20 Pro is a testament to the brand's constant mission to achieve excellence with all its products that offers solutions to its customers that bring ease and innovation into their daily lives.

“Innovation is at the heart of everything we do at Huawei CBG. Our exceptional features are a result of our heavy investment in research and development.
