Huawei sold $15 million worth of P20/P20 Pro units in 10 seconds

Huawei sold $15 million worth of P20/P20 Pro units in 10 seconds
Huawei has managed to sell over $15 million worth of P20 devices in just 10 seconds. The company announced its latest flagship lineup towards the end of last month, with Huawei later going on to set itself a goal of shipping 20 million combined P20, P20 Pro, and P20 Lite units in 2018. Following on from this, and if the initial response in China is indicative of how the devices will sell, it appears the company could well be on its way to reaching its goal.

The company’s flagship P20 and P20 Pro models went on sale in its home country of China last Thursday and, as is typical in the market, the devices were available via a flash sale. Now, less than a week after the sale took place, Huawei has gone on to confirm that it sold up to 100 million Yuan, or $15 million worth of Huawei P20 and P20 Pro units in just 10 seconds. The company hasn’t confirmed the official total of units sold, but the number of devices available is sure to have been pretty high. Also worth mentioning is the fact that this flash sale included only the flagship models. If the budget P20 Lite, which goes by the name Nova 3e in the Chinese market, had been included in the sale, the amount of revenue may have been much higher. After all, not every consumer can afford a flagship device.

Huawei’s P20 lineup is currently on sale worldwide and is backed by huge marketing campaigns in both European and Asian markets, all of which is part of the company’s ultimate goal of becoming the number one smartphone manufacturer worldwide. Speaking of which, Huawei’s next objective is to overtake Apple to become number two, something the company expects to achieve by the end of next year.

They would be talking in number of devices sold if it were good numbers. 15M$ is like 15K, nothing news worthy.

let's assume that one p20 is 950 dollars, so if you divide $150,000,000 by $950 that'll give you 16.6 million devices sold in 10 seconds. Now this is f**king sick... like WTF??? huawei is on a tear.. Take a bow son.

Uhhh... $150,000,000 divided by 950 = roughly 158,000. $15,000,000 divided by 950 = roughly 16,000. Big difference between $150 Million and $15 Million. Big difference between 16 million units and 16 thousand units. You may have been joking. I don't know anymore.

LG isn't even top 5 anymore. 1 - Samsung 2 - Apple 3 - Huawei 4 - Oppo 5 - Xaiomi LG Mobile is currently running at a loss of around $1 billion per annum and if things don't change will probably cease to exist within 3 years.

A limited number of fanboys waiting for the P20 buys it on the first minute of release. This is a small number. I'm sure Samsung and Apple numbers in the first 10seconds are far higher than this.
