Yu Chengdong, the head of Huawei's consumer business, replied at the time that he would try to get people to line up to buy Huawei mobile phones. "See if we can achieve this year? We must work hard!"
In fact, at the end of last year, when Mate 20 Pro was facing the market, Huawei had already achieved the “let foreigners line up to buy” flag.
Long queues of consumers from all over the world
The commercial insider reported that since the P30 series debuted in Paris at the end of March, it has quickly become a hot topic for fans and new users.
Yvelyn Tey, 29, and his fiancé took the top spot in Singapore's April 6th lineup, which will be her first use of Huawei smartphones.

“Since the release of the Mate 20 series, I have heard a lot of praise about this phone and started to understand Huawei,” said Ivelin Tai. “My fiancé also praised Huawei’s camera. I I often take pictures with my mobile phone, so a good camera is really the key. I was very impressed when I heard about the night mode of the P30 series."
Behind them is also a couple - at 10 pm on April 5, 29-year-old Valerie Kang and her boyfriend are ready to queue overnight.

“When we learned that the Mate 20 series was sold out last year, we decided to arrive early last night, so we can buy the P30 Pro together,” she said.
The couple have never used Huawei phones before. They have seen all kinds of praises about the P30 Pro on the Internet, and they are "very excited" about the camera that can use this phone.
Not only Singaporean locals, but even some tourists can hardly block the attraction of Huawei.
Lizzie de Vreese from Belgium and her boyfriend made a special trip to the place of sale to buy the P30 Pro. She said, “I saw a lot of “unbelievable” photos on social media. I took a Huawei mobile phone and I know that I should change my mobile phone."

Back to the place where Huawei's new machine was launched, photos shared by people on social media showed that on the day of the launch of the P30 series in Paris, consumers who queued up to buy almost filled the entire street.

In the other countries where the P30 series was first launched, the queues were equally “unprecedented” and felt:

Malaysian lined up crowds
On Twitter, a Filipino user said that he got up at 3:30 in the morning to get up and line up.
Observer Network noticed that "tiuing to buy Chinese mobile phones" has long been a rare event.
In May 2018, OnePlus 6 was launched for one plus. According to one plus official tweets, in 26 cities in 11 countries, as many as 15,000 people are waiting in line to snap up the phone.

"Now everyone will not line up to buy apple products."
On the other hand, Apple, once known as “letting consumers line up all night”, last year’s iPhone X series was sold out in China.
The Beijing News reported at the time that at the scene of the Xidan and Sanlitun Apple stores in Beijing, although there were people waiting in line, the number was far less popular than when the iPhone X was released in 2017.
On the first day of the iPhone X series, Apple’s Xidan store’s door can be seen from the Internet.
"This year, there are too few people," said a scalper outside the Xidanmen store. In the past, on the first day of the launch of the new iPhone, the store will be overcrowded for a long time, and many people will queue up for the experience. However, the reporter saw that after an hour of sales in 2018, the flow of people in the store was significantly reduced, and many experience machines were vacant and unmanned.
According to a report by the US Consumer News and Business Channel (CNBC) on March 26, former Apple executive Guy Kawasaki expressed disappointment with Apple's innovation in an interview that day.
"What is Apple's innovation today? I want something that is moving. I hope that one night before shipment, the product will allow me to wait outside the Apple store like a fool. Now everyone will not line up outside the Apple retail store. Waiting," he said with emotion.
