So we’re now at the end of the year and it’s that period when companies begin to reflect on the entire year to determine where exactly they stand in the scheme of things – the phone industry to be specific.
While Samsung who took a hit earlier this year still reported a profit, which they made by selling some other devices aside the Galaxy Note 7. Huawei can sure also boast of the amount of sales they made this year.
According to very reliable reports, the P9 and P9 Plus have shipped over 10M units worldwide.
The P9 and P9 Plus were announced back in April and hailed as Huawei’s flagship phones and some of the best hardware the company could put together. Aside from the octa-core processor, 3/4GB of RAM, aluminum body, USB-C port, fingerprint reader, IR blaster, and nice 5.2″ and 5.5″ displays, the two phones benefitted from a (vaguely defined) partnership with Leica that yielded a SUMMARIT H 1:2.2/27 dual lens setup on the back.
The result was a phone that looked good, worked well, garnered a lot of praise for Huawei, and took great photos, even if they weren’t completely outstanding.
With the Huawei is growing rapidly, I’m pretty sure they would soon catch up with Samsung and Apple, if they haven’t already and overtake them as the smartphone industry leaders.
