Huawei has set a new record for itself by transporting more than 200 million phones in 2018, the company said in a statement Sunday.
The Chinese phone maker said the numbers were driven primarily by the success of products like P20, Honor 10 and Mate 20.
Huawei’s phone shipments have risen from 3 million units in 2010, the company added.
Last year, Huawei said it sold 153 million units. The company surpassed Apple in the second quarter of 2018 to become the world’s second largest phone retailer, according to Canalys research company.
“In the global mobile phone market, Huawei has gone from being a ‘different’ statistic to rank among the top 3 players in the world,” the company said in their official statement.
Despite his successes this year, Huawei has still faced some challenges, especially with the US government. In February, US intelligence officials advised Americans not to buy Huawei products for fear of being used to spy on the Chinese government.
In January, AT & T withdrew from an agreement to sell Huawei Mate 10 Pro, and Verizon reportedly pursued their step.
