Already the number 2 smartphone maker in the world, Huawei has set a record for the number of smartphones it has shipped in a calendar year. The Chinese company has announced that it has sold over 200 million smartphones in 2018 on the back of the success of its P20, Mate 20 and Honor 10 range.

Huawei has crested the 200 million smartphones sold in a calendar year for the first time in its history. Already the number 2 smartphone maker in the world, passing Apple in Q2 2018, the company now has the number 1 smartphone maker Samsung firmly in its sights. However, with upwards of 300 million sales annually, the Korean giant will still take some catching but it will certainly be looking over its shoulder at the Chinese upstart.

"In the global smartphone market, Huawei has gone from being dismissed as a statistical 'other' to ranking among the Top 3 players in the world," Huawei said in its statement. Its flagship P20 and Mate 20 range were largely responsible for driving sales while its Honor 10 range targeting younger customers, particularly in Asia, was also a hit. Each of the devices features custom Huawei silicon, large displays and include high-end cameras with the P20 and Mate 20 cameras designed in partnership with Leica.

What makes Huawei’s sales numbers more remarkable is that it is effectively locked out of the US market, the third largest smartphone market in the world, following allegations of spying by the US government. However, it experienced strong sales growth in its home market of China, the rest of Asia including India, which is now the second largest smartphone market in the world.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
