Huawei shipped over 100 million smartphones in 2016
At the official launch event in China for its Nova and Nova Plus smartphones, Huawei celebrated shipping more than 100 million smartphones in 2016, two months before the year ends. It took Huawei the whole of 2015 to accomplish the same milestone, so clearly growth has been achieved.

Together with other impressive figures, such as 1.5 million Honor 8 phones sold globally and 6 million Huawei P9 shipments in less than five months, China's top mobile player has good reasons to party. Having conquered the domestic market, Huawei is interested in becoming the world's biggest smartphone maker by volume.

Next month, Huawei will introduce the specs-intense Mate 9, a phablet to be available in flat and curved screen variants. Reportedly, the smartphone will feature the company's latest Kirin processor, along with up to 6GB of RAM, a dual camera setup, and fast charging technology that takes the battery from zero to 50% in just five minutes. It is also rumored to have as many as nine color variants, which seems fitting for Huawei's grandiose plans.
