Even though Huawei has been hit by traumatic constraints ordered by the U.S. but still that doesn’t stop the Chinese giant from notching up the 100 million smartphone sell in just 5 months.
In an event organized at the Wuhan Optics Valley International Tennis Center, Huawei announced that it has shipped 100 million smartphones already in the first 5 months of 2019, which is 49 days less than those needed last year to achieve this result.
The achievement stands clearly in line with the company’s goal to ship 250 million devices by the end of the year and it is certainly on the right way. But these reports are as of the end-may and the June figure has drastically taken a toll after the ban imposed by the United States and it is clear that the company is expecting for the sales in the future months to downwards.
Ren Zhengfei, founder and CEO of Huawei, has already said that by 2019 and 2020 international shipments are expected to be reduced by 40-60% and that the company’s growth will be substantially flat in terms of turnover.
Huawei every second sells more than 7 Huawei smartphones globally, an astounding figure that highlights the power of Huawei in the tech industry and once the problems with the US government are resolved the Chinese Giant has all the potential to overtake Samsung to be the leading smartphone manufacturers.
The declaration was made on the Nova 5 launch event, held in Hong Kong, where the company also launched new Kirin 810 SoC made with a production process at 7 nanometers and including NPU DaVinci for AI operations.
It’s worth mentioning that, not only the Chinese manufacturer’s smartphones that are doing well but the Huawei Watch GT with 2 million shipments already is doing great to be one of the best sellers.
