‘used phone’ attack from Huawei, which could not return to the old days!


Huawei has started second-hand sales of models such as the Mate 30 and Mate 20 RS in China. The phones come with HarmonyOS 2.

Huawei sanctions, which started with the US ban on Google and reached the chip restriction, disrupted the company’s business. Developing the HarmonyOS operating system and services such as Petal Map and Petal Mail in response to embargoes, the Chinese technology giant is trying different methods to turn its efforts into profit and to bring its products to the market with users.

Huawei has officially launched its second-hand smartphone operation. The company promises to provide consumers with “the best experience they can have on a second-hand phone” by purging old devices from their problems and bringing quality standards to an acceptable level. Among the products that are currently being sold in China are Huawei’s flagships from years ago.
