2.6 Million Units of the Huawei P9 Have Been Sold in Just 6 Weeks

Huawei P9 2

Maintaining a steady growth is one thing that most smartphones manufacturers struggle with. This is as a result of increased competition in the space that has seen many new entrants come in and upset the established brands we have known for years.

As other manufacturers see their sales go down, one company that is having a very good year is Huawei. The company unveiled its 2016 flagship smartphone, the Huawei P9, back in April this year and it went on sale a few weeks later. The Huawei P9 is doing quite well as the company is reporting that 2.6 Million units of the P9 and P9 Plus have been shipped so far. In the carefully worded press release, Huawei says the 2.6 Million units represent the P9 and P9 Plus smartphones it has shipped but these might also reflect on the actual sales.

The P9 and P9 Plus smartphones have been available on the market for just 6 weeks so Huawei is definitely excited with these figures. According to the company, it is seeing strong sales China, Britain, France and Finland. France is the best country for Huawei and here sales of the P9 are 1000% higher those of the P8.
