Unveiled last month, the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro offer a compelling combination of cutting-edge hardware and software. The two flagships went on sale in China not so long and customers in the country have been flocking to get them.
Well according to the latest data, Huawei has managed to sell over $15 million-worth of P20 devices in just 10 seconds. Apparently, the company has set a goal for itself to ship 20 million of combined P20, P20 Pro and P20 Lite units in 2018.
If these initial numbers are any indications, it seems Huawei will have no problem reaching its goal.
Huawei’s new flagships were well-received in China
It’s worth mentioning, the two flagships were available via a flash-sale, as its customary. The third version, the P20 Lite (known as the Nova 3e on the Chinese market) wasn’t included. If it had been, the revenue resulted from the sale would have been much higher. After all, not all customers have the means to afford a flagship device.
Huawei hasn’t revealed the exact number of phones that were sold, but it’s pretty obvious the numbers are significant.
Currently, the two P20 and P20 Pro are available for purchase in other markets as well, with Huawei heavily marketing the duo in Asia and Europe.
Despite its US carrier deals falling through, we expect that at some point, the Huawei P20 Pro will be made available in the country through retailers such as Amazon. However, due to mounting US government pressure, key partners like Best Buy won’t be selling Huawei’s new phones.
Even if things aren’t going as planned in regards to the US market, Huawei still hopes to be able to overtake Apple and become the world’s second-largest smartphone maker by the end of next year. And with P20 sales kicking off so well, the company has a very good chance to reach its objective.
