Huawei has big plans, and they are not even shy about it. This tech giant managed to sell 108 million handsets last year, and they are planning to close 2016 with an increase of 30 percent. "We are optimistic and confident about reaching our target shipment of 140 million smartphones this year," said Huawei's chief executive of its consumer business group, Richard Yu Chengdong earlier this week.

Right now, Huawei has an impressive retail network - more than 35,000 stores worldwide, with 11,000 in China, 6,500 in the rest of Asia, 6,200 in Europe, and 1,500 in South America. These numbers alone make Huawei a big name in the industry. Apple, for example, is only present in 17 countries, with a total of less than 500 retail locations.

The most interesting part about Huawei is that while its global market share is around 11.5 percent, the company's share in the premium market has recorded a big jump between March and May - 15.2 percent to 25.7 percent - mainly thanks to the Huawei P9 flagship.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
