Huawei market share rises following record global sales of P9 and P9 Plus
Huawei has a lot of reason to smile these days, thanks mainly to their latest models – the P9 and P9 Plus. Arming both phones with features that seem to be a hit with the consumer market has worked wonders and this has translated to a big bump for the company.
According to ZDNet, Huawei finds itself moving up in the global smartphone market with its shares growing by 8.5%. This development came about following the company’s sales performance, surpassing 2.6 million of global shipments in just six weeks.
Huawei P9 already Outperforming The P8
The Huawei P9 has already outshone its predecessor (Huawei P8) and this is the case for multiple regions. In France, P9 sales are 1,000 percent higher, the UK showing a 300 percent difference and 400 percent higher in Finland and Poland.
With those figures out in the open, it is no surprise to see Huawei gaining in the global smartphone market with the numbers expected to rise even more.
Premium Devices That Have Spurred Up Demand
Obviously, Huawei has come up with a pair of devices that people find alluring. The specs could be the reason behind it all.
A brief rundown on that would see the Huawei P9 carry a 5.2-inch FHD screen, a 64-bit Huawei Kirin 955 display, an octa-core processor, 3 or 4 GB of RAM, a dual 12 MP main camera and a front-facing 8 MP shooter and a 3,000 mAh battery.
On the other end, the higher P9 Plus offers almost the same specs expect for the screen (5.5-inch) and the battery (3,400 mAh). Both smartphones run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
The specs seem nothing out of the ordinary when compared to other smartphones in the market.
Will The Huawei Run Last?
It may be a bit premature but Huawei deserves credit for the record feat that they have pulled. On whether they can sustain or improve is another matter though no. 2 spot holder Apple could be within reach.
According to CNet, Apple did own a 13.9% share back in 2015. However, the Cupertino company did project a first-ever drop in sales back in April and the trend could continue to flounder.
With Apple holding off any major re-design until 2017 for the iPhone 8, the iPhone 7 may be of no help once it launches in September. If so, the shares could dip a bit which may allow Huawei to narrow the gap even more.
