During the Mate 30 launch event yesterday, Huawei’s CEO Richard Yu has revealed a new milestone for the Chinese smartphone maker.
According to Yu, more than 17 million smartphones from the P30 series have been shipped globally. If that doesn’t sounds impressive, keep in mind that the P30 series is merely half a year old. In comparison, last year’s P20 series only managed to surpass the 10 million sales mark, five month after it’s debut.
Similarly, the Mate 20 series had also achieved more than 16 million sales mark as of now. This is also another huge improvement over last year’s Mate 10, which has shipped merely over 10 million units during the same period of time.
Huawei’s latest milestone has been achieved despite the U.S. trade ban which greatly diminishes consumer’s confidence on the smartphone maker. However, Huawei is able to ride on the patriotic wave in China as more Chinese consumers rushed to purchase more devices from Huawei in show of their support for the company.
