Huawei has announced that it has shipped more than 10 million Huawei P8 lite smartphones, a mark that was reached just nine months after launch in Europe last spring.
In total, the entire Huawei P8 series has successfully reached more than 16 million people globally.
Huawei had a rosy 2016 start, shipping over 12 million smartphones in January, a 93 percent increase from January 2015, Huawei says.
January was also the fourth consecutive month that Huawei shipped over 10 million smartphones. With Huawei’s growing brand awareness and the continuous global growth, consumer interest in Huawei devices has continued to increase significantly.
According to the Chinese phone manufacturer, this success builds on a strong 2015, during which Huawei shipped 108 million smartphones, a 44 percent increase from the previous year, to firmly establish its position as one of the top three global smartphone brands.
The Huawei P8 lite is the first Huawei smartphone to achieve higher sales in global markets than in China, signalling a breakthrough in Huawei’s strategy of internationalisation and reaffirming the effectiveness of Huawei’s global market structure.
