In the three months alone during Q2 2015, the Chinese manufacturer has sold almost 30 million smartphones. Its direct luxury brand, the Honor, has also been performing outstandingly.
Huawei has announced that it had sold more Honor devices in the first half of 2015 than it did in all of 2014. This equates to over 20 million Honor smartphones and $2.63 billion USD in sales.

Huawei intends to promote the growth of Honor for a worldwide audience.
The current focus, according to the company, is the German, UK, and French market. Huawei is cooperating with major e-commerce platforms in those regions to promote Honor products even further. Honor is now available in 74 regions and countries worldwide.
