Huawei is eager to advise the world that the United States restriction isn’t holding it back. The questionable business delivered 200 million phones 2 months earlier than it did in 2018, it stated Wednesday, the exact same day its Mate X collapsible phone introduced in China.

Its release puts this success to the launch of “stand-out devices” like the P30 and Mate 30 series, along with the 5G Kirin 990 chip that powers the latter. 

The business is commemorating the turning point by launching a Commemorative Edition of the Mate 30 Pro 5G. It’ll have 8 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage, in addition to a color option of Forest Green and Orange “with vegan leather.”

The limited edition device will be available to order in China on Nov. 1, but Huawei didn’t mention an international launch — we’ve reached out for comment on that and will update when we hear back.

Last week, Huawei said it’d seen a year-on-year shipment increase of 26% and exceeded revenue expectations despite the company’s blacklisting by the US Commerce Department. That ban created uncertainty about its ability to do business with US companies and meant its Mate 30 devices shipped without full support for Google’s Android operating system, which an executive acknowledged as a major challenge earlier this week.
