Huawei sells record number of smartphones in 2018

Huawei has sold this year a record number of smartphones message tech website CNet based on a statement from the Chinese smartphone manufacturer. According to the manufacturer, end-users are increasingly convinced of the qualities of the smartphones, so that it has now become a top player in the global smartphone market.

Throughout 2018, more than 200 million Huawei smartphones were sold worldwide, according to the tech website. This is because consumers were increasingly interested in the manufacturer’s P20, Honor 10 and Mate 20 aircraft.

Rising popularity of Huawei

Since the arrival of the Huawei smartphones in 2010, sales have only increased. In 2010, a total of 3 million units were sold over the counter. Last year, in 2017, there were already 153 million. The more than 200 million this year show that the popularity of this Chinese brand is only increasing.

Growth of market share

Huawei’s share of the global smart phone market is also affected by the increasing popularity. This year, the Chinese manufacturer Apple managed to pass as the number two, after South Korean Samsung, in market share for smartphones. This has made Huawei a Top 3 player from trend follower, according to the company itself. The smartphone manufacturer expects to become the world’s largest even in 2019.

Sales in regions

Most of the aircraft were sold in China itself and in Europe. The market in the North American region is disappointing because the Chinese manufacturer has been removed from the range by various operators. This is because of the call by the American government to ban Huawei products because of possible espionage possibilities by the Chinese government. Operators such as AT&T and Verizon have therefore discontinued their Huawei offerings.
