Huawei had announced a while back that it plans to ship 200 million of smartphones in 2018 which would account for a 47 million increase over the last year. During a conference held in Shenzhen where the company unveiled the new Nova 3 and TalkBand B5 smartphones, it confirmed that it is halfway from hitting its goal.
The company’s CEO announced the milestone and showed that it needed only seven months to hit the 100,000 shipments mark. The company compared that in 2015 it needed an entire year to fulfil this goal. Huawei has multiplied its sales number by 51 over the last seven years.
The company’s consumer products boss Richard Yu stated Huawei has really outdone itself when it comes to smartphone sales this year. The company has sold a record 100 million device till now.
The 100 million devices shipped milestone was achieved by Huawei in just 7 months in 2018, and the same number was achieved by December in 2015, October in 2016 and in September 2017. The company is on track to break all previous records in 2018. Yu stated that hopes his company hopes to sell 200 million units sold by December 31, 2018. The company’s latest flagship devices the P20 and P20 Pro are doing very well and has seen combined sales of over 6 million.
