During the 1980s, the Chinese government tried to modernize the country's underdeveloped telecommunications infrastructure. A core component of the telecommunications network was telephone exchange switches, and in the late 1980s, several Chinese research groups endeavored to acquire and develop the technology, usually through joint ventures with foreign companies.

Ren Zhengfei, a former deputy director of the People's Liberation Army engineering corps, founded Huawei in 1987 in Shenzhen. The company reports that it had RMB 21,000 in registered capital at the time of its founding.

Huawei is a part of Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. It is a Chinese multinational telecommunications company founded in the year 1987. The headquarter of Huawei is located in Shenzhen. In the time of its establishment, Huawei was manufacturing just phone switches. Since then, it has been a long way for this business. Huawei is now an established name in the telecommunication sector.

The Chinese telecommunications company has been manufacturing mobile phones since 1997. It is also the largest telecom infrastructure maker in the world. The company also makes Android smartphones and tablets. Recently it has stepped into the smartwatch market with an Android Wear based device. It is another one of the big smartphone manufacturers from China.

Until the year 2015, Huawei was a relatively unknown name in the smartphone industry. From 2016, Huawei started to invest in big international marketing campaigns and took an integrative approach to the demand of the global market. They began to manufacture smartphones with finely balanced specs that met consumer needs at attractive prices. It has been the most effective strategy for its success. Also, they presented some innovative features in the past years as well. Their vision, ambition, hard work, excellence and passion for success made them the second largest smartphone maker in the world by mid-2017 (first being Samsung). As of 2018, Huawei is also the top telecommunications and network equipment manufacturer in the globe.

Huawei develops smartphones in various price, style, and features range. They have the P series as flagship phones with their best features. Then there is the Mate series that are known for their tremendous displays to satisfy phablet lovers. Usually, they have one or two releases from both lines every year as their most premium devices. Premium flagship Huawei P20 Pro was recognized as one of the best camera phones of 2018 with very impressive night shots. Huawei is among the first companies to present a 5G smartphone as well as a foldable phone in 2019 Mobile World Congress. The premium foldable Huawei Mate X achieved many prizes and got worldwide recognition for its innovative, simplistic and elegant foldable design.

Huawei in Bangladesh

Their first big success in Bangladesh came through Huawei G Play Mini released back in 2015. Then the Huawei Y5C and Huawei Y3C helped them to build trust among the low budget group in their early stage of business in Bangladesh. But it is the mid-range Huawei Nova 3i released in 2018 which led them to become one of the top brands in the Bangladeshi market. Huawei Y9 2018 got a good response among the low-mid range users. Huawei phones are officially available in their showrooms and authorized dealer outlets throughout the country. Online purchase via various local online shops are also possible.
