Huawei has just officially started selling used smartphones in China. These certified pre-owned phones from the company are now available from the official online store in the region.
The new service from the Chinese tech giant offers a variety of smartphones that were previously owned and certified by the company itself to ensure the quality of smartphones. This move by the consumer benefits the brand as its customers now receive more affordable deals, and the company also benefits as used devices will provide inventory amid a shortage of smartphones.
Looking at the prices, you can see that the prices of used smartphones are about 500 or 600 yuan (roughly $ 77 to $ 92) cheaper than their new counterparts. Thus, pre-owned models are clearly more cost-effective. Huawei also guarantees that the used phones it certifies undergo rigorous quality checks, while the company also re-equips these device models with new original batteries before offering them for sale, and receives a one-year warranty.
