Huawei sells 50 million phones in 2015

William Xu, HuaweiHuawei has sold  50 million phone sales so far this year which is 46 percent more than the same time last year.

And that figure has been managed by ignoring the US market completely and concentrating on the Asian and European markets.

Revenue during the same six month period came to approximately $6.9 billion US dollars.

What is also amazing is that Huawei just rolled out its latest flagship device in April in a couple of Asian territories and this would not have affected the figures.

The 5.2-inch P8 has not hit Europe yet although a 5 inch P8 lite version is available on Amazon at $250. The 6.8-inch P8 max, which Huawei says will cost  $610 in China for a July release has not come out yet either.

The Huawei P8 Max is powered by an octa-core Kirin 935 processor with four cores clocked at 2.2GHz and four more at 1.5GHz. The P8 Max comes with 3GB RAM and 64GB internal storage – there’s no other storage options unlike the P8 which comes in Standard (16GB) and Premium (64GB) variants – while the microSD card can expand the storage by up to 64GB and doubles up as a secondary SIM card slot.

The Honor 7, fast charging, Google blessed Nexus which Huawei is running next is also coming. Either way it is looking like Huawei is going to have a busy year with or without the US. [That’s enough about phones, Ed.]
