Recently, the Chinese smartphones manufacturer ‘Huawei’ proclaimed that the company’s first half smartphone shipments reached 60.56
According to the letter published by the CEO of Huawei ‘Yu Chengdong’, we can perceive that the credit for that much increase goes to Mate 8 and the recent flagship killer Huawei P9.
However, from the introduction by Yu Chengdong:
P9 / P9 Plus, in the duration of three months (April 6 London release) has sold more than 450 million units. Surprisingly, this seems to be an increase of 120% as compared with P8 selling in the same time period.
Meanwhile, Huawei Mate 8 is also under the spotlight with P9. Mate 8 compared to previous generations is to achieve sales growth over 65%, as this year, the sales surpassed four million.
No doubt, the outstanding Leica dual camera, a gigantic screen, long life, excellent workmanship and luxurious appearance have made P9 a 3000 to 4000 yuan terminal. Thus this lead to a massive increase in sales of P9.
If we take a glimpse back at the previous news, the cumulative sales target of P9 is 10 million units. Meanwhile, for Huawei phone 2016 shipment, the target is 1.4 million units.
