Huawei grows smartphone shipments 25% in H1

Tuesday 26 July 2016 | 11:39 CET | News
Huawei said it grew smartphone shipments 25 percent year-on-year in the first half of 2016 to 60.56 million. This far outpaces the estimated 3.1 percent global market growth, the company noted. Total revenue from its Consumer Business Group increased 41 percent year-on-year to CNY 77.4 billion in the first half, thanks to strong demand outside its home market China. In particular, the company saw strong demand in high-end smartphone markets such as Europe and emerging markets including North Africa, Central Asia and Latin America, Huawei said.
