However, since the two Huawei P40 models were launched in China on April 8, JD.com ’s monthly sales alone exceeded 200,000 units (approximately 72,900 units for P40 and 186,000 units for P40 Pro), and the entire network and offline sales exceeded 100 Ten thousand units. Ren Zhengfei also said in a recent interview with foreign media that Huawei’s mobile phones are not affected by the epidemic and currently have a daily sales of 450,000 units in the Chinese market; after April, global monthly sales reached 20 million units.
As the flagship mobile phone of Huawei in the first half of 2020, the P40 series supports 5G and adopts a new 50-megapixel main camera. Among them, the P40 Pro also has a more powerful periscope zoom camera. At present, DXO ranks first in the world, far exceeding the competition Samsung S20 Ultra, iPhone 11 Pro Max and other models. In addition, the higher-end P40 Pro + will be available in June, providing the only 10x optical zoom function in the mobile phone industry.
In overseas markets, although the P40 series is equipped with Huawei’s HMS service, Huawei has put more effort into marketing. Gifts such as GT watches and FreeBuds headphones are given during the pre-sale. The actual price is lower than that of the National Bank, which attracts overseas users to buy. Ren Zhengfei said that although Huawei ’s mobile phone sales in overseas markets have declined slightly, with the launch of the P40 equipped with HMS, Huawei will make HMS unique and determined to gain market recognition.
As sales of Huawei P40 series phones soared, their accessories also rose, with Huawei P40 case up 6%, Huawei P40 Pro case up 10%, and Huawei P40 Lite case up 3%.
