“Huawei had an increase in revenue by 30 percent to $12.2 billion, making 2014 the first year for Huawei with revenues of over $10 billion. The Chinese manufacturer managed to sell over 75 million smartphones in 2014 — a year-on-year increase of 45 percent — and is looking to maintain its momentum in 2015 by focusing on the high-end segment and targeting 100 million sales.
Key contributors to Huawei’s growth were the Ascend P7, which sold four million units globally, and the Ascend Mate, with two million global sales. Huawei also saw a lot of sales in the mid-tier Honor line, which made its entry into European markets late last year. Devices like the Honor 3C and Honor 3X amassed a bulk of the sales in this category.
The Honor 6 — which offers a 5-inch full-HD screen, octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 920 CPU, 16/32GB internal memory, 3GB RAM, 13 MP camera, 5 MP front shooter, LTE and 3,100 mAh battery for $300 — has also generated a lot of interest, particularly in markets like India. Globally, e-commerce sales amounted to 41 percent of Huawei’s overall sales.”
With such strong sales, there was only one thing left to do, and that was review the Honor 6 which counted for 41 percent of overall sales. So starting Monday will be my review of the Honor 6.
