Huawei’s ascent towards the premium smartphone segment started to pay off a few years ago. The P series, which is the Chinese corporation’s high end phone nomenclature, was started a couple of years ago with the Ascend moniker. Early reases were not very good, but you should note that this is a company that has remained motivated for a very long time, and has since seen great success by listening to its consumers by making design and marketing changes in the smartphone selling business.
As of now, the P30 series of phones (P30, P30 Pro and P30 Lite) are unquestionably one of the best smartphones on earth. The devices follow an excellent trend set by the P20 series whose P20 Pro wowed the market thanks to its optics. The P30 Pro elevated its predecessor’s offering with more features, particularly its zoom lens that can pull x10 optical zoom and x50 digital zoom while appreciably maintaining clarity.
According to Huawei’s President for Consumer Business He Gang, the company has shipped more than 10 million P30 series as of June 20 (that is 85 days after sales began). This is more than what the P20 series achieved under the same period in 2018, which shipped the same number of units 62 days later. It is also worth noting that this number exceeds the Mate 20 series’, which shipped 10 million units in four months.
It would be remiss of us if we do not mention that we expected Huawei to fall behind the competition in terms of shipments if its trade tussles with the U.S. are anything to go by. Huawei, which is still releasing smart handhelds, has not had a great month after the U.S. Department of Commerce directed American companies to stop doing business with the Chinese manufacturer, citing cases of trade secrets theft and the possibility that China is spying on people using its telecoms equipment.
