The Chinese company announces record worldwide sales for 2015.

Huawei made the milestone announcement via Chinese social networks and microblogging service Weibo. By the manufacturer's own account, Huawei's 2015 sales have reached 100 million smartphones. Not only is Huawei now the third largest smartphone manufacturer worldwide, the company is also first in its home territory. Immediate competitors like Lenovo, Xiaomi, and ZTE have seemingly flatlined in comparison. Huawei experienced a whopping 71 percent sales growth during Q3 2015 year over year.

The company contributes a large portion of its success to the high-end Honor branding. Though only a couple of years old, Honor smartphones have been selling extremely well in China through aggressive prices and marketing campaigns compared to Xiaomi, ZTE, and others. Huawei signed a contract with Google to develop the recent Nexus 6P as well. 

A handful of other smartphone manufacturers have not been so lucky. HTC is facing lukewarm sales of its latest One A9, LG reported lower-than-expected Q3 2015 results, and Xiaomi recently brushed off its failure to meet its lofty sales goal of 80 million.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
