Huawei ships record 200 million phones in 2018 despite controversies
Huawei's 2018 was tumultuous, to put it mildly, but the company has at least a few reasons to brag. The Chinese mobile giant has revealed that it shipped over 200 million smartphones in the year, setting a new record (it 'only' moved 153 million phones in 2017). It won't surprise you as to why Huawei fared so well, though. Simply put, it had a string of hits throughout the year -- and flagships played only a partial role.
The P20 and Mate 20 series have done well, racking up respective shipments of 16 million and 5 million devices. However, the bread-and-butter phones under Huawei's own brand were the Nova series, including the just-launched Nova 4. The firm has sold more than 65 million of the mid-range devices since the series began. And then there's the more budget-oriented Honor badge. Huawei didn't provide specific figures, but it touted the "outstanding performance" of the Honor 10 and Honor View 10 (the View 20 is too recent) as major factors in its Chinese success.
P20和Mate 20系列表现不俗，分别出货1600万台和500万台。然而，华为自有品牌Nova系列才是其主要利润来源，包括刚刚发布的Nova 4。自该系列推出以来，该公司已经售出了6500多万台中档手机。然后是更注重预算的荣耀系列，但华为没有提供具体的数据，荣耀10和荣耀View 10(View 20最近将要发布)的“出色表现”是其在中国取得成功的主要因素。
The milestone may seem surprising if you're used to seemingly daily stories about the CFO's arrest and numerous device bans, but it really illustrates how little Huawei depends on Western markets. The company has surged in recent months on the back of sales not just in its homeland, but abroad. It doesn't need US sales, even if it's frustrated with the country's opposition to its wares. And many of those device bans are focused on networking equipment, not handsets. You can walk into virtually any major carrier store in Canada and buy a Mate 20 Pro or P20 Pro, for instance, even though the government is facing pressure to exclude Huawei from 5G networks.
如果你看惯了华为首席财务官被捕和无数设备禁令的日常报道，那么这一里程碑或许会让你感到惊讶，但这确实说明华为对西方市场的依赖有多小。近几个月来，该公司不仅在国内销售强劲，而且在海外的销售也很强劲。华为不需要靠在美国的销量，即使它对美国对其产品的反对感到沮丧。这些设备禁令大多针对网络设备，而不是手机。例如，走进加拿大的任何一家大型运营商商店，都能购买到Mate 20 Pro或P20 Pro，尽管加拿大政府正面临将华为排除在5G网络之外的压力。
If there's any concern, it's for the company's long-term prospects. Huawei was hard to top in 2018, but that raises the question of whether or not it can keep that streak going. It also has to hope that growing wariness in some western countries doesn't lead to large-scale phone bans. And then there's the smartphone market at large. The industry appears to have plateaued, and Huawei might suffer just by running out of potential customers.

My wish is world peace, and human being stop fighting. Like below.
It’s human instinct to fight.
To ask for world peace is to take away our humanity.
Let's face the facts..... China will do ANYTHING to insure that state sponsored manufactures will dominate all other products.
So... Not a single American company has taken any subsidy from the government?
American companies don't require foreign companies to share all their tech just to do business here, so they can steal it and rebrand it as something else to name one thing...
Oh please, that is such a BS. So you think that western manufacturers do not snoop on their customers? Google does it pretty much openly, facebook was saving all the sms messages. From leaked docs that Snowden show NSA and CIA had access and back doors for ages to pretty much any device. I rather let Chinese have my s...t cuz I am not living there.
No way would I use a Huawei product, blatantly ignoring international law, who knows how much tech they or the government has stolen for them...
Huawei represents a threat to US corporate dominance, .... Despite going on about so-called 'free-trade' or 'free market' the US will go to the utmost lengths to prevent competition.
Do you have a source for this?
Do you have any evidence of Huawei doing anything they are accused of? Shouldn't the burden of the evidence be on the accuser? Germany and UK have both come out and said Huawei equipment passes their security tests and have no reason to believe any allegations are true.
Not hard to sell 200 million phones in your own country that the Chinese are basically forcing their own people to buy and support when you have over a billion people in your country.
Companies in China boycotting Apple, reportedly threatening to fire iPhone users
Chinese firms are rallying around Huawei after the tech giant has seen immense pressure over recent weeks,...
Weirdly the people most obsessed with Apple are Android users.
Yeah, they are. There's been literally NO proof that Huawei has done any wrongdoing, with only baseless accusations coming from the US govt. This is just their plan to suppress Huawei's 5G technology as the western world hasn't caught up yet. Very much LIES unless proven guilty.
Do Australia and New Zealand make many smartphones?
It seems people will ignore potential privacy and security issues if the item is cheap enough.
Personally I wouldn't use one of these if you paid me, but that's just me.
Shipped doesn't equate to sales.
