Huawei says its sales are up in the UAE, including Dubai.

Huawei Consumer Business Group has announced that its sales of smartphones, wearables, tablets and PCs have increased by 81% from January 1 to May 31 from the same period last year in the UAE.

In a release, Huawei claimed its products and services "are available in more than 170 countries, and are used by a third of the world’s population, ranking second in the world in mobile phone shipments in Q1 2019 with a well-rounded portfolio targeting all segments and the only smartphone vendor at the top of the market that saw volumes grow during Q1 2019."

The news comes amid increasing scrutiny of Huawei in Western nations, particularly the United States.
