Amongst all the doom and gloom with poor performance from many manufacturers, Huawei seems to be defying market trends. The company has reportedly shipped over 50 million smartphones in the first 6 months of 2015.
At the same point in 2014, Huawei shipped 34.27 million smartphones but it seems that the company’s flagships like the Huawei P8, Mate 7, Honor 6 and 6 Plus amongst a few others have led the increase in shipments.
Revenue generated during the same six-month period is expected to come at about 6.9 billion US Dollars. What is amazing is that all these figures focus on the Asian and European market and exclude the manufacturer’s sales in the US.
Huawei’s next step is to enter the premium smartphone market
With the company’s dedicated push into the premium smartphone market, it seems to be a very exciting time for Huawei.
In other news, the company has revealed the pricing information regarding the P8 Max. The phablet flagship will be sold in July and cost about 610 US Dollars. The device is powered by an octa-core Kirin 935 processor, 3GB of RAM and 4360 mAh battery. The phone has a 13MP camera and Android 5.0 Lollipop. More details regarding the 6.8-inch 1080p device can be found in one of our previous posts here.
Right now, Lenovo, LG and Xiaomi are competing with Huawei for the third spot in terms of smartphones sales around the world. With the company all set to release the Honor 7 and the next Google Nexus device in the coming months, it shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
