Chinese telecom equipment supplier ZTE’s (0763.HKG, 000063.SHE) first-half net profit rose 23% thanks to the sale of a subsidiary, while a drop in revenue shows that the company continues to face difficulties, The Wall Street Journal reported.

ZTE expects sales to increase as telecom companies operators like China Mobile are likely to ramp up their investments to build faster fourth-generation, long-term-evolution networks.
