China now becomes the biggest country with 5G Network because they had already have three major carriers on board. Their government plans to install over 50,000 5G base stations in 3 Chinese cities such as Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou, infact, those cities are already covered by the 5G network.
Huawei sees this as an opportunity to make some sales so they move 100,000 units of the Mate 30 5G to those cities to make some sales because a lot of people would now be interested to buy since there is 5G Network already in their residence.
