Huawei opens its largest store outside of China

Chinese tech firm Huawei has launched its largest international flagship store in Madrid.

The new centrally located 1100sqm store showcases the company’s 5G and AI technologies as well as its range of smartphones and computers. More than 1000 people attended the launch. 

Huawei recently cooperated with Vodafone Espana to roll out the first commercial 5G service in Spain, which is now offering 5G roaming in four European countries. Huawei has already provided equipment for Britain’s new 5G network.

The Chinese firm has already won 50 5G contracts around the world, but is at the centre of controversy in the US and Australia, among other markets, over allegations its systems can be used by Chinese government agencies to spy on users.
