Huawei ships a record 100 million phones for 2015, lines up firmly behind Samsung and Apple

Hot on the heels of a report putting it in third place worldwide with 7.4% of the global smartphone shipments last quarter, Huawei took to its Weibo page today, boasting in its turn that it has hit a milestone. The achievement that Huawei unlocked? Well, no less than a 100 million smartphones shipped in 2015 so far.
phone makers that inhabit our little blue planet. Granted, the 100 million mark is mostly due to inexpensive rockstars, rather than $500+ phone like the P8 or Mate S, but this is still a very impressive figure, cementing Huawei's lead before up-and-coming Chinese brands that bet on volume, too, like Xiaomi or Meizu.That's a record for the company, and places it firmly behind Samsung and Apple in the top three of the most prolific
Of course, it doesn't hurt the brand's recognition that Huawei made a high-end Nexus 6P this year, started selling handsets under its Honor spinoff in Europe officially, and, if rumors are any indication, intends to do the same in the US as well.

Wonder if P9 will get thinner or thicker? P6-6.2, P7-6.5, P8-6.4. I want to see a 4.6mm phone next year. Someone must dethrone Vivo and Oppo!!!

If Huawei manages to get their software UI design together, they could really unseat Samsung in a couple years. As for Apple, that's a major challenge still because they have a seamless ecosystem and a extremely loyal fanbase.

Huawei can't unseat Samsung with a UI. Sammy's brand fanbase is as strong as Apple's. I know people who do not like Huawei's phones just because it's brand.

Huawei is a very good brand. In comparison to samsung their phones are little slower and camera result is also not up to the mark... even heavy games doesnt run as smoothly as on samsung... Samsung is better in everything except UI... Huawei's emotion UI is better than samsung TW
