  Huawei sold more smartphones than Apple in 2019 despite the fact that its new phones can't run Google apps — but it's not so surprising Huawei sold more smartphones than Apple in 2019, according to new market research. It's a triumph for Huawei, which is facing sanctions from the US that ban the company from accessing Google's Android apps.Between figures from both reports, Huawei sold around 240 million smartphones in 2019 compared to Apple's 197 million. It also means that Huawei took Apple over as second-largest smartphone maker in the world. Huawei also sold about 35 million more smartphones than it did in 2018. Samsung is holding its first place lead with about 295 million smartphones sold in 2019.

" Huawei is more committed to Europe than ever before," said the company's top executive for Europe Abraham Liu during a Chinese New Year reception in "That's why we have decided we want to set up manufacturing bases in Europe -- so that we can truly have 5 G for Europe made in Europe ."

Move comes days after new security guidelines stop short of barring Chinese telecoms giant from EU next-generation infrastructure. Huawei is seeking to fight off US pressure on European allies to ban it from 5 G networks.

Would Huawei Return To Google? It Depends Who You Ask

  Would Huawei Return To Google? It Depends Who You Ask Huawei is currently blocked from including Google apps and services on its smartphones, but if the trade ban was lifted, would it go back to the full Android phone? It depends on who at Huawei you ask. Last year's biggest telco story without a doubt was the US executive order that forbid US companies from supplying Huawei with their services, software or hardware.The largest hit that Huawei took in a consumer sense was the removal of supply of Google apps and services for their upcoming phones, leading to the situation where the Huawei Mate 30 Pro launched here in Australia in a Google-free state.

The announcement comes just days after the EU recommended that member states could ban telecoms operators deemed a security risk from critical parts of 5G infrastructure.

But the EU plan, which closely mirrored rules set out by Britain allowing a limited role for Huawei, stopped short of barring the company from the next-generation communications network designed for near-instantaneous data transfers.

A ban on Huawei will now ultimately be up to member states, but the European Commission's middle road recommendations give cover to European capitals to resist pleas from Washington.

Huawei is one of the world's leading network technology suppliers, and one of the few -- along with European telecom companies Nokia and Ericsson -- capable of building 5G networks.
