Huawei’s smartphone sales top 100m this year

Huawei on Tuesday said its smartphone sales have topped 100 million this year, breaking the record among domestic firms and making it the world’s third-biggest mobile brand following Samsung and Apple.

The market share of Shenzhen-based Huawei Technologies Co has risen to 9 percent globally and surpassed 15 percent in China, leading for six straight months, data from a third-party market consultant showed.

"It’s a stunning increase," said He Gang, president of Huawei’s mobile phone line. "Beginning in 2010 with a sales figure of no more than 3 million, Huawei took five years to reach 75 million and another year to achieve 100 million."
