Huawei's smartphones are also popular with thugs in Brazil.

Rio will host the Summer Olympics later this year. The city not only struggles with environmental issues but also with a high crime. 40 Huawei employees have been robbed at gun point this week according to a report from Chinese Global Times.

The incident happened at lunch time when 6 or 7 gangsters entered a restaurant in the Botafogo. The 40 or so Huawei employees got stripped off their belongings including cash, smartphones and jewelry. 

The robbers did apparently not care about switching off the smartphones they just stole. The GPS location pointed to a Favela according to Huawei's employees. If the Brazilian police will try to recover the stolen Huawei phones is not known at this point.

Huawei is the rising star in the global smartphone market. The new Huawei flagship smartphone will be unveiled on April 6. The Huawei P9 is expected to be powered by an octa-core Kirin 950 processor and offer a 5.2-inch 1080p display.
