Huawei overtakes Apple in Global Sales Volume with 13.2% Market Share



The Chinese Smartphone manufacturer Huawei has been exceptionally well when it comes to their smartphone sales. It is, in fact, one of the top players in the industry now competing with some big names like Apple, Samsung, etc. And the new reports which we have proves just the same. According to the new reports which we have from the company, they claim to have surpassed Apple in terms of the overall smartphones that were shipped.

Huawei claims that they shipped a total of 139 million smartphones last year. This number is not just huge but it is, in fact, a lot more than what the Cupertino giant shipped last year. Allen Wang, Director for Product for Huawei India says that the company overtook Apple in terms of global sales volume in December. Well, according to him the company’s share in December 2016 reached 13.2 per cent globally, which is a great news. It is also higher than what Apple managed to do. Apple was only in the range of 12-percent.

Wang also stated that the company overtook even Samsung in some markets. However, when it comes to overall smartphone sales, Samsung is still on top leading all the charts. He also went on to say that Honor is now the number one brand when it comes to online brands. If in case you didn’t know, Honor is the sub-brand of Huawei. If you are an India reader, then you probably already know how popular it is, in India. The same goes to a few other markets as well.

Talking about the flagship smartphone from the company, they have recently announced the new Huawei P10 and the P10 Plus as their flagships for 2017. The new Huawei P10 ships with a 5.1″ FHD display on the front. Internally it is powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 960 SoC which is also one of the best SoC that the company makes in house. It is coupled with 4GB RAM as well to keep things nice and simple. In terms of the camera, we are looking at a dual camera setup with a 20MP sensor and a 12MP sensor. On the front, we have an 8MP selfie shooter.
