Few days ago Huawei celebrated its new milestone of 100 million smartphone shipment in 2015. As a follow up of this achievement, He Gang, Huawei’s president of consumer business, said in an interview that Huawei plans to release a new high-end smartphone in the international market in 2016. Earlier in 2015 the mid-high range Mate 7 launched and moved more than 7 million units. Its successor Mate 8 saw an even greater sales while the slightly higher range Mate S shipped over 1 million units in approximately 2 months after launch. Huawei seems to be inspired by those and is now planning to aim higher. Huawei’s plan should meet with fierce competition from Apple and Samsung and it would be the hope for Chinese smartphones in that market segment.
