Huawei is doing great and it looks like the company will reach the goal of 140 million smartphones sold by the end of the year. According to its Weibo account, Huawei reached the 100 million units sold barrier on October 14.

The Chinese market is Huawei's main playground, with 30 percent of the segment priced between around $445 USD and $595 USD. This area of the market is considered the high-end sector in China. Overall, Huawei remains the leader of the local market. Since launching in April, the dual-camera Huawei P9 and Huawei P9 Plus managed to hit more than 8 million customers.

Back in 2015, the company reported 100 million units sold during the entire year. Huawei is currently growing in multiple key markets, especially in Western and North Eastern Europe. The company reported a massive 40 percent sales increase in the first half of the year and has already unveiled its plans to become the global leader of the market by 2020.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
