Have you come across the new Huawei-made Nexus 6P? If you have, you will agree that this Chinese OEM is truly a force to reckon in the current smartphone industry.
If you thought Apple has it all when it comes to design, well, there is still room for more as far as the “premium design” bandwagon is concerned. The Huawei P8 Lite was released last spring and it came into a glowing reception in the phone’s home country. However, it seems
there is even better news for this company as it has reported that this device is, even more, popular in other parts of the world than it is in China.
More than 10 million units already shipped
According to the tech giant, the P8 Lite is the first ever smartphone to attract a larger user base internationally than in its own home country. As for now, Huawei says that it has shipped more than 10 million units of this device from the day it was launched.
Huawei recently made its intentions of expanding to the global market very clear and with this kind of showing where it has already shipped over 10 million units of the smaller P8 Lite, Samsung, Apple and other major players will have to watch their backs more carefully.
Huawei also revealed that the start of the year 2016 couldn’t be any better. Just this January, the company shipped more than 12 million phones, making it the fourth month in a row for the Chinese smartphone maker to ship over 10 million phones. This adds to a strong performance in 2015, which it recorded more than 108 million smartphone shipments. This shows that the Huawei brand is now becoming more popular in the West, Europe, and other regions – and people kind of love their devices. In fact, it now sits among the top three leading smartphone sellers in the world.
Huawei is a must-watch in 2016
As mentioned at the beginning, Huawei was at the helm of manufacturing the Nexus 6P – a phone that features a decent design with top-notch features – it won’t be long before this company’s name starts decorating smartphone shelves all over the world.
Samsung is the leading seller of smartphones in the world and this is undoubtedly due to the huge number of phones it manufactures. To beat this competition, Huawei will also need to serve the wide range of market available while ensuring that it keeps its profits as required.
With the fast-approaching MWC 2016 event just around the corner, Huawei has already confirmed that it will be in Barcelona, Spain. But it has not confirmed the release of the rumored four models of the Huawei P9 smartphone series during this event.
