Xiaomi may have come out on top in the growth department this year but fellow Chinese OEM Huawei has also seen a rise in sales figures. The company's Rotating CEO, Ken Hu, has announced that the Chinese top-dogs recorded an impressive 153 million shipments in 2017.

Huawei had a great year, as the company managed to hold on to its throne at the top of the Chinese market, while putting pressure on Apple during the middle two quarters of the year. The company recorded 139 million shipments in 2016, and the boost to 153 million this year is a strong 10% year-on-year growth. In terms of revenue, Huawei saw a total of 90 billion dollars, 15% up from 2016. Market share also saw upward movement, as the company's global market share finally hit the 10%, making it one of the three manufacturers in the work to reach that mark, alongside Samsung and Apple.

2017 has been a strong year for the Chinese heavyweights, and 2018 shows signs of even greater growth, with Huawei set to spread its wings into the US via a partnership with AT&T. It's sub-brand, Honor, has also made massive waves in the market over the last quarter of the year. If everything goes according to plan, we may see Huawei overtake Apple as the second largest smartphone brand in the world in 2018. Unlikely, yes, but not out of the realm of possibility.

The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
