Huawei Targets to Sell 270 mn Units this Year to Become World’s Largest Smartphone Manufacturer

Huawei came to smartphone market like a storm and till that time it is spreading like a fire and people are loving every bit of its handsets and other devices. The Chinese tech giant shipped a whooping 153 million smartphones in the year 2017 and impressive 206 million devices in 2018. This was expected as we were already witnessing the popularity this brand was gaining with time due to its cost-effectiveness and flagship kind of features. Due to this Huawei was able to secure the second slot whereas Samsung remained the World’s Largest Smartphone Manufacturer for several years till now. Well like any other company, Huawei has also set a target for this year and has made it to the public.

Just after one day of announcing that the company is successful in shipping 200 million smartphones this year so far, Huawei took to media and announced their goal to ship whooping 270 million smartphones by the end of 2019. This figure is 20 million more than what analysts had expected.

Will Huawei Become World’s Largest Smartphone Manufacturer?

On Average, Huawei sells 20 million units per months and 5 million per week. In order to achieve their target, they need to ship 7 million devices per week and 1 million per day. Well is it really possible?

We can expect everything from Huawei as after the company was banned by the US, everyone was expecting that its sales will drop. But out of surprise, the company is not at all affected by it, instead, its sales are ever-rising with day and it still managed to be on number 2 when it comes to top smartphone brands globally.

Most probably, the release of Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro will help Huawei boosting their sales to meet the goal they have set for this year.


If Huawei manages to sell 270 million units by the end of the year 2019, it will become the World’s largest smartphone manufacturer for the very first time in history, surpassing Samsung which has remained on the top from the last two years.
