Huawei Mate 10 Pro confirmed to hit the US in 2018
Huawei has big plans for the US market, since conquering it is essential in helping the Chinese company to reach its goal of becoming the world's leading smartphone market. For now, some Huawei and Honor handsets can be found in the US online and via various electronics stores, but the brand still struggles to gain a significant share of the local market.
Huawei' consumer business president, Richard Yu, has recently spoken to ABC News about the company's plans to expand in the US. According to him, the Mate 10 Pro will reach the US market next year with the help of more than just one local carrier. "We will sell our flagship phone, our product, in the U.S. market through carriers next year. I think we can bring value to the carriers and to consumers. Better product, better innovation, better user experience," said Yu.
Huawei has been manufacturing phones since the 1990s, then launched its smartphone brand in 2010. Back in 2016, the Shenzhen-based company reported a revenue of around US$75.6 billion and a profit of US$5.4 billion. Although its year-over-year growth in the latest quarter was higher than Samsung's and Apple's combined, Huawei still has to catch them in terms of shipments (83.3 million units by Samsung, 46.7 million by Apple, and 39.1 million units shipped by Huawei in the latest quarter).
