“This is a significant milestone for Huawei, the largest Chinese smartphone brand with a growing global presence. It speaks volumes for this primarily network infrastructure vendor on how far it has grown in the consumer mobile handset space in the last three to four years. The global scale Huawei has been able to achieve can be attributed to consistent investment in R&D and manufacturing, coupled with aggressive marketing and sales channel expansion,” said Peter Richardson, Counterpoint’s Research Director.
The future looks bright for Huawei, especially with their focus on AI with their Kirin 970 SoC which will be equipped on their upcoming Mate 10.
