Huawei is now proudly boasting the fact that it’s already managed to ship over 2.6 million units of its P9 and P9 Plus smartphones, which were both unveiled at its special event on April 6.
The P9 and P9 Plus have achieved that number of shipments within just six weeks of going on sale. What’s more, outside of China the sales volumes for the P9 are 130% higher than they were for the P8 last year in the same amount of time. In France, the P9 sales numbers are 1,000% bigger than they were for the P8, while in Poland and Finland that difference is ‘just’ 400%. The UK isn’t doing bad either, with 300% more units shipped compared to last year’s flagship.
In terms of actual numbers of units sold, not compared to any previous device, the P9 and P9 Plus are doing best in China, France, Finland, and the UK, according to Huawei. The P9 and P9 Plus have helped the Chinese company remain the third biggest smartphone maker in the world.
