In a recent launch of the P10, Yu Chengdong, CEO of Huawei made a statement that the company really big plans for the P10 and its big brother P10 Plus.
He announced that they were planning for a sale of a whopping number of ten million sales for each handset, to say the least. Chengdong made use of the opportunity to stress on the future of Huawei into the high-end mobile phone market. Incidentally, these two P series devices are both considered to be the manufacturer’s flagship devices and made their debut in China just a few days ago.
If only the design setup and hardware configurations are being considered, then it is very likely that Huawei would be able to meet the expected target without any problem at all. However, the only hindrance that can pose as a barrier to this expectation is the pricing tag for a Chinese smartphone, especially that of the P10 plus. The base model of the P10 featuring 4GB RAM and 64GB inbuilt storage is priced at close to $550 in the Chinese market. But, given the fact that this is a flagship gadget, the pricing is acceptable. But, as far as the pricing of the P10 Plus is concerned, the pricing is a bit on the higher side for a Chinese smartphone. This is considering both the base 6GB RAM + 64GB storage model priced at approximately 4,388 Yuan or $637) or the higher end 6GB RAM + 256GB storage model (priced at close to an exorbitant amount of 5,588 Yuan) is taken into account.
It is worth noting that the two flagship P10 and P10 Plus handsets made their debut in Europe at the CES 2017 meet as part of their overseas sales. The European versions are also priced at much higher rates than the Chinese market price tags. But, this did not stop them from receiving quite a lot of positive reviews. This is likely to indicate that the manufacturer is likely to compete with Apple and Samsung for its sales. At present, Huawei is trailing behind these two tech giants in the global market and will have to wage a tough battle against them that the company however seems to be confident of winning in the long run. With the Chinese smartphone market becoming more and more aggressive each passing day, it is only natural that these OEMs keep revamping their prices often to stay at par with their competitors.
