Best Huawei Android smartphones in South Africa

Huawei has a wide range of smartphones in South Africa, catering to multiple market segments.

This includes mid-range devices like the Huawei Y7, up to the flagship Huawei P30 Pro.

Huawei has shown excellent growth in the smartphone segment globally and recently reported that it has shipped over 200 million phones in 2019.

Locally, Huawei’s South African market share was 37.9% for smartphones priced at $100 or above as of August 2019.

The next step, Huawei said, is to overtake Samsung in South Africa in terms of smartphone dominance.

Android-supported smartphones

This may seem a difficult task, as Huawei faces the fallout of the US and China’s “trade war”.

This resulted in the US forcing Google to limit Huawei’s access to Android – and the subsequent concern from consumers that Huawei smartphones “do not support Android”.

Huawei has a wide range of devices on offer in South Africa which fully support Android and will continue to enjoy Android support going forward.

These devices are detailed below.
