Huawei’s 1H/2015 results show significant growth in smartphone sales
Huawei may no longer be the top smartphone seller in its own mainland, but that doesn’t mean that the company is in any way on decline. The company has done a good job in gaining mindshare with its recent flagship launches, and today we learn more about its results in 2015.
Huawei has just published its results for the first half of 2015, and the company has reported 48.2 million units sold, which is already a crazy 39% growth when compared to last year in that same period. The company’s revenue totaled $9.09 billion, which is also a 69% increase when compared to 2014. If we then segregated the data by category, smartphone sales accounted for $7.23 billion, up 87%, and then sales of its mobile broadband terminals and home-use devices accounted for $1.53 million, which is also up 17%.
Huawei has mentioned that it plans to sell as many as 100 million smartphones by the end of 2015. At this pace we could say that it still stands 2 million units short, but anything could happen with its recent flagship launches, in addition to what may come at IFA
