Achievement Unlocked: 10 Million and Counting
Chinese smartphone giants, Huawei first entered the high-end smartphone scene in 2012 and they are unlikely to leave anytime soon with their recent achievement. Huawei has just announced that they have shipped more than 10 million copies of their flagship Huawei P9 and P9 Plus’ worldwide – making them the first models in Huawei’s inventory to achieve this remarkable feat. Despite a slow international market in terms of smartphone sales in 2016, this impressive result has proven that Huawei’s decision to invest in international markets is paying off handsomely. The announcement was made by Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group (CBG) in a press release released at the end of December 2016.
Within 6 weeks of its launching in April 2016, the global shipment for P9 exceeded more than 2.6 million. Progressively throughout the year, the global demand for the flagship smartphone did not dwindle but continue to increase, resulting in the achievements that it has managed to reach today. During its 8-month stint in the market, the Huawei P9 has gotten many positive reviews and recommendations from hundreds of key international publications and tech experts. The sustained demands are largely thanks to the reputation that the Huawei P9 has managed to build with both consumers and experts for its supreme camera experience, sleek design, and smooth overall performance.
The Huawei P9 and P9 Plus is a high-end smartphone that is a result of a successful collaboration between Huawei and legendary German camera brand Leica. The P9 and P9 Plus are both equipped with a dual lens camera, with one lens equipped with an RGB sensor to capture vivid colours; the other a monochrome lens designed specifically to provide more details to the photos – capturing stunning images with brilliant photo quality and fine details. This partnership between the two legendary brands has managed to build a new benchmark within the smartphone industry, revolutionizing advanced smartphone technology and providing outstanding photography quality to consumers.
