Huawei has hit a new milestone. In a press release, the company announced that it shipped more than 10 million P9 and P9 Plus smartphones globally, which is a first for Huawei’s flagship series.

The devices have proven to be quite popular among consumer and have also won a few award including “European Consumer Smartphone 2016-17” from EISA and “Best Personal Computing Device” at CES Asia. Announced back in April, their biggest selling point just might be the Leica-branded dual-camera setup, although the devices do have more to offer.

Huawei announced that it shipped 33.59 million smartphones in Q3, which represents a 23 percent increase when compared with the same period last year. Its mid-range and high-end devices accounted for around 44% of the shipments.

According to the press release, the company’s market share is now above 15 percent in 30 countries and above 20 percent in 20 countries. More importantly, Huawei states that it has made “substantial breakthroughs” in key European markets including the UK, France, and Germany.

Huawei really is becoming more and more popular, especially in Western markets. It knows how to make great devices, which are normally a bit more affordable when compared to other big brands like Samsung and HTC.
