However, overseas shipments dropped nearly a third in the second quarter, and Canalys analyst Mo Jia suggested that strength in China alone “will not be enough to sustain Huawei at the top once the global economy starts to improve.”

Huawei has a central issue in the geopolitical deadlock between Beijing and Washington, claiming the firm poses a significant cybersecurity threat.

The US has also asked the extradition of Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou on fraud charges, further damaging relations between China and Canada, where she is under house arrest.
