Huawei has received largely positive reviews for the Mate 20 series which was found to be a pretty solid offering compared to some of the other smartphones on the market. It appears that the company has seen considerable demand for the Mate 20. Huawei has now revealed that it has shipped more than 10 million units of the Mate 20 globally.
Granted, shipped does not mean sold, but such a high number suggests that there has been good demand from customers for the Mate 20. It’s pertinent to mention here that Huawei’s smartphones are not officially available in the United States. This 10 million figure doesn’t include any shipments to the United States, one of the primary markets for premium smartphones.
The 10 million figure represents shipments for the entire Mate 20 lineup which includes the Mate 20, Mate 20 Lite, Mate 20 Pro, and the Mate 20 X. Some variants are market-specific but the overall performance is commendable given that the series was launched in October last year.
Huawei has made no secret of the fact that it wants to become the top smartphone vendor in the world. It has been rolling out some impressive devices to help guide it to that spot. The company’s upcoming devices, the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro, are due to be unveiled on March 26th. It remains to be seen if they will receive a similar response from customers when they hit the market.
Thank you to everyone who has helped us achieve an incredible 10,000,000 shipments of the #HUAWEIMate20 Series since it was launched in October,2018. We have been overwhelmed by your continued support and will strive to keep improving our full product range. pic.twitter.com/Alyu8KdwhZ
