The Android-powered smartphone maker, Huawei, has reached a significant milestone in its total worldwide sales of its P9 and P9 Plus handsets. The number one smartphone maker in China, and third largest in the world, have sold over 12 million units globally. Admittedly, 12 million units do not seem an achievement compared with Apple and Samsung's sales, but the Chinese smartphone manufacturer has a large portfolio of handsets that are also widely sold.
Currently, the company is launching it's newest product in the P-phone lineup. The P10 and P10 Plus have been recently released with much public enthusiasm that the company is expected to sell more than 10 million combined units. The staggering worldwide sales information was announced recently during the P10 launching event in China.
Huawei P9 and Huawei P9 Plus were released in April last year, making them available out in the market almost a year at this point. When they were launched, the P9 and P9 Plus served as the company’s flagship smartphones. According to the WCCFTech, by December last year, 10 million P9 units were already sold in the market.
This means that even though the two phones were available out on the market for over half a year, they were still selling like pancakes. The smartphone company has also sold 2 additional million units in the last couple of months. This is despite the fact that its successor, the Mate 9, has been out on the market for quite some time now.
According to the Android Headlines, Huawei made no sales report announcement regarding the Mate 9. This could be because the unit has not been sold in larger quantities as the P9 duo that was announced before it. The company might be soaring high in sales among avid smartphone users, but it still is having difficulty in making its mark in the U.S.
