Huawei has been growing its market share across the globe very quickly in all segments of the Android smartphone market and it’s committed to challenging the likes of Samsung and Apple. Huawei has said that its goal is to ship at least 200 million smartphones this year. It’s good to have goals. But can they do it? We will find out.
Huawei CEO of Consumer Business Yu Chengdong said in a video commemorating Huawei’s Weibo community’s anniversary that the company wants to ship 200 million smartphones this year. It will be a significant improvement compared to the company’s total smartphone shipments last year.
Chengdong mentioned in the video that Huawei shipped over 150 million handsets in 2017. That figure includes the shipments of its Honor series handsets. The company is now looking to post an almost 30 percent year-over-year growth with its aim of shipping 200 million devices in 2018. Do you think they can do it?
Market research firms place Huawei behind Apple and Samsung for shipments in the first quarter of this year while it tied in first place in China with local rivals Xiaomi and Oppo so it does seem like they could do it. The company will continue to compete with these two giants of the smartphone market and hopefully reach their goal.
