Huawei broke the record with more than 100 million smartphone units shipping in 2015
A few months ago, Huawei said it is still on schedule to break the record with 100 million smartphone sales in 2015. And finally this China smartphone manufacturer has come to realize their forecasting. Only few days ago, Huawei has revealed via its official Weibo account that it has shipped more than 100 million smartphones as of December 18, 2015.

This is a new sale record from Huawei smartphone, which currently holds the 3rd position in the smartphone manufacturing world, after the two big giants Apple and Samsung. To be able to do this incredible thing, Huawei made a wise strategy when launching the product range from cheap to luxury, as well as positioning themselves with a strong presence in overseas markets such as Asia and Europe .
It's a completely different strategy from Xiaomi, as the company focuses on low price segments and domestic markets. It was so that Xiaomi only achieved a turnover of around 73 million phones in 2015, though they also set the goal of 100 million smartphones could be sold in the earlier this year.
2016 will be even more interesting for the company as a recent teaser revealed that Huawei will soon enter the US market with mainstream smartphones - the Honor 5X and the flagship, Huawei Mate 8.
One point makes Huawei becomes different with other smartphone manufacturers of China, which is a lot of products such as Huawei P8, Mate S and Huawei Mate 8 are using the chips Kirin, which is researched and produced by Huawei.
Additionally, hardware and design are the strengths of Huawei in the present time, when the smartphone Nexus 6P cooperate together with Google is considered as the best Android smartphones of 2015. Then, Huawei's next target is probably related to the software, which will be improved to become a better and more suited to Western customers.
Not many smartphone manufacturers, especially in China could reach 100 million machines sold in one year. And it is even harder to dominate over a lot of competitions and in difficult markets such as Europe or the US. Therefore, we can say that Huawei is replaced Xiaomi to become a symbol of China in the smartphone world.
