Tencent is a Chinese tech conglomerate and the lucky employees in its Platform and Content Group (PCG) were the recipients of the free phones. The business unit, which creates content for Tencent’s social, video, and news platforms, was celebrating its second anniversary. Making the gift seem even more generous, after the model went on sale in March, it quickly sold out. After the phone was handed out to the lucky Tencent employees, it started showing up on second-hand e-commerce sites for as much as 2.5 times its original price. As Tencent employees started dumping their pricey phones, Huawei added to the inventory as it released a limited supply of the phones to the marketplace.
