Huawei Ships 200 Mn Smartphones In 2018

The company's Nova series of smartphones has seen the maximum demand from the consumers with total shipment crossing over 65 million in 2018.

Chinese technology firm Huawei said on Tuesday that it had shipped more than 200 million smartphones so far this year, a new record high for the company. The Nova 4, meanwhile, is Huawei's first phone with a camera hole display, the same kind of screen design that Samsung will use for the Galaxy S10 next year.

Having sold 153 million units in 2017, the company had forecasted sales of 180 million units in the year 2018. Since its release in March, global shipments have exceeded 16 million units, with female users accounting for almost half of that number. The chipset features highly sophisticated 7nm processing and a more powerful A76-based+G76 architecture.

The Huawei P20 series, the company claims, is all about what smart mobile photography can do, proving that even thin and stylish mobile phones can provide a professional-level photography experience.

Since its release in March, global shipments for Huawei P20 series have exceeded 16 million units, with female users accounting for almost half of that number.

Huawei's nova series has been particularly popular with young users because of its stunning appearance and innovative visual elements. The company is aiming to boost its overall shipments to 250 million units by 2019.

Why it is important: Earlier this year, Huawei topped Apple as the world's second-largest smartphone maker, just behind Samsung. Also, the company is working on a foldable smartphone as well. Also, how much time Huawei will take to become the most valuable brand in the world.

Looking at IDC's shipment tracker for Q3 2018, Huawei now commands a 14.6 per cent market share while Samsung is still leading at 20.3 per cent. Huawei had also recorded the biggest growth for Q3 2018 vs Q3 2017 at 32.9 per cent, followed by Xiaomi at 21.2 per cent. The firm boasts going from "being dismissed as a statistical "Other" to ranking among the top 3 players in the world".
