Mate 20 Pro announced

After shipping the first 100 million smartphones in July, Huawei managed to overtake Apple and grab the second place. The company will not settle, however, for the second place, and it is now aiming to dethrone Samsung by the end of 2019. Back in August, CEO Richard Yu also forecasted that Huawei will be shipping 200 million smartphones by the end of the year.

Huawei’s smartphone division He Gang said that the goal for shipping 200 million smartphones will be achieved by December 25.

The report mentions, however, that this number is combined for both brands, Huawei and Honor.
