    Huawei projects to sell 120 million smartphones in 2016

    Huawei’s goal for 2016 is to hit 120 million sales, which may sound ambitious but if you take into account the fact that they boosted sales by 44% between 2014 and 2015, the target seems quite modest

    2015 was undoubtedly a brilliant year for the Chinese company Huawei. Thanks to a very strong domestic year as well as being appreciated in the Western hemisphere, Huawei was able to sell 108 million smartphones between January and December 2015. This meteoric rise saw them become the third largest smartphone manufacturer in the world.

    This year however the have even bigger plans. Can they become the second largest manufacturer by year-end? Probably not, considering Samsung and Apple‘s substantial edge over Huawei, but what the latter OEM is very clearly capable of is further boost its yearly shipments. Their goal for 2016 is to hit 120 million sales, which may sound ambitious but if you take into account the fact that they boosted sales by 44% between 2014 and 2015, the target seems quite modest.

    We are still waiting on Google to approach Huawei to build the next Nexus 6P sequel, with the latest stock Android-powered phablet said to have “œraised Huawei‘s brand image“ in Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Germany, and Portugal, among others. Meanwhile, new additions to the premium P and Mate rosters should definitely help sales stay at recent remarkable heights and keep Huawei gunning for that silver medal.
