HUAWEI Mate 9 sales reached 5 million units worldwide in only the first four months. HUAWEI P9 and P10 Plus have also been selling quite well, company executives said.
HUAWEI has sold over 12 million units in a little less than a year. This is 36% more than its predecessor, Mate 8, during the same time frame.
The Mate 9 was officially launched last November. The device offers high-end specs, a large 5.9-inch display, and it is quite easy on the eyes. Combined with a competitive price tag, the phablet has proven to be quite popular among consumers.
HUAWEI is currently the third biggest smartphone manufacturer in the world and has been increasing its presence in markets around the world, including Ethiopia , in the last few years. In 2016, it sold 140 million smartphones, a 30 percent increase when compared with the previous year.
Thanks to high demand for the Mate 9 and a few other great devices like the P10 and P10 Plus flagships, HUAWEI anticipates shipping even more smartphones this year. HUAWEI has set an initial target of 10 million units for the new HUAWEI P10 smartphones sales, aiming to surpass that in the long term.
