Huawei's P30 series is its fastest selling flagship lineup ever
It took Huawei around nine months to ship 10 million P10 & P10 Plus units back in 2017. This dropped to just five months last year with the P20 flagships because of the brand’s increasing popularity. Now, despite a rough patch recently, Huawei has confirmed (via Android Authority) that it has broken its own record once again.

Taking just 85 days to do so, the Chinese company has today announced that it has shipped over 10 million units of the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro combined since their international release on April 5th. As pointed out by the President of Huawei’s Handsets Product Line, Kevin Ho, it took the Huawei P20 series an extra 62 days to reach the same sales milestone.

In addition to setting a record for the Huawei P series, the success of the P30 lineup also sets a new benchmark for all Huawei flagships. Prior to today, the brand’s fastest selling series was the Mate 20 which took four and a half months to reach 10 million units, two months more than the P30 and P30 Pro.

Huawei hasn’t yet confirmed its annual sales target for the P30 series but a notable drop in demand over the coming months is to be expected. After all, sales will be impacted by the arrival of new rivals such as the Galaxy Note 10 and Huawei's US trade ban. Speaking of which, the company recently admitted that international sales have dropped around 40% since it was implemented, thus suggesting the P30 duo’s sales milestone would have been reached sooner had it not been for the ban.

The P30 pro was mainly picked up by people wanting the best camera and ridiculously good battery life, which is the reason I bought mine and it even exceeded my expectations in those regards. However, I think the Mate 30 Pro would be a much more attractive phone for the masses including myself as it will have the same or even better camera but with the higher resolution screen, new processor, among other premium features. I do see a difference beyond 1080p on a smartphone screen for photo viewing despite how everyone claims it doesnt.

I have the mate 20 Pro now and love it. I'll probably get the Mate 30Pro the day it comes out.... IF I don't buy the Mate X instead. It's stupid expensive for a first generation technology, but looks so cool!

Great hardware limited by EMUI... it's the only thing holding me back from trying this phone out.

Actually it's very resourceful system and optimized, not limited at all, it's one stupid area is the copycat from iOS for no good reason. Huawei should learn a lesson or 2 from Samsung's oneUI or even MIUI
