Huawei announced today that it has officially shipped over 10 million units in its Huawei Mate 20 series of smartphones. Although the press release doesn’t clarify as much, the Mate 20 series includes no less than five different smartphones.
Regardless, Huawei pushing 10 million units of what is mostly a very high-end series of smartphones is a considerable achievement. Only the Huawei Mate 20 Lite — launched at the end of August 2018 — doesn’t feature a premium price tag, with a suggested retail cost of 380 pounds (~$497).
The Huawei Mate 20 Pro is likely the biggest seller of the group since it features almost all of the top-of-the-line specs one could want in a 2018 flagship along with a collection of cool colors to choose from. The Huawei Mate 20 X was also likely very popular, with its huge display and focus on gaming.
The vanilla Huawei Mate 20 appeals to those who want some degree of flagship performance while still keeping the price relatively reasonable. On the flipside of that, that Huawei Porsche Design Mate 20 RS pushes the very limits of how much a smartphone can cost, with its maximum pricing topping out at 2,095 euros (~$2,356). It’s not likely Huawei sold too many of that variant.
The most important thing to keep in mind when it comes to Huawei and its sales numbers is that it isn’t selling any smartphones in one of the world’s biggest markets: the United States. If Huawei could sell phones in the U.S., it’s very likely it would be shipping much more than 10 million units of the Huawei Mate 20 series.
