Huawei Technologies said its third-quarter smartphone shipments jumped 26 percent year-on-year to 16.8 million worldwide. In total the company shipped 32.03 million handsets in the three months. Growth was led by models such as the Huawei Ascend P7, which passed 3 million units sold in September, and the Ascend Mate7, which sold out in more than 1,000 retail outlets in China on its first day available. The Ascend P6 launched in June last year has also sold 5 million units to date, and the LTE Honor 6 has sold 2 million in China and will soon expand to new countries. Shao Yang, Vice President
