Huawei is currently one of the world’s biggest smartphone makers and while the competition has been very strong with companies such as Samsung, Apple, Xiaomi releasing a number of smartphones in 2016, the Huawei P9 and P9 Plus has continued to do well since it was released eight months ago.
The success of the P9 and P9 Plus continues as the company has now shipped more than million of them in 2016. What’s even more impressive is that the phone is now eight months old but continues to be the favorite option for many. Huawei has released a lot of smartphones in 2016 but the P9 and P9 Plus have been the biggest success for the company as they have shipped ten million units around the world. This is actually the first time that Huawei, the third largest smartphone maker in the world, ships ten million units of one of its flagship phones.
Huawei announced last month that it had sold nine million P9 smartphones. The numbers were impressive then and even more impressive now that the phone continues to do well. The company could end up selling around eleven or twelve million by the time the new versions are announced in 2017.
Huawei had sold six million smartphones in September, meaning they sold a whopping three million between the months of October and November. The company shipped a total of 33 million units in the third quarter alone. The numbers were a 23 percent increase over the same period last year.
The Huawei P9 and P9 Plus continue their success but the P10 is rumored to be coming in 2017. A release date is not yet known but the best guess now is April since the P9 was released in that month. The rumored specs of the P10 are 6GB of RAM and the dual camera.
