Huawei consumer BG has announced that the Chinese manufacturer has sold more than 200 million smartphones in the year of 2018, outselling 2017 by nearly 50 million units, pulling ahead of Apple in terms of sales 3 quarters in a row, retaining its number 2 spot as the second best smartphone brand internationally. This is largely due to the “out-of-the-box” thinking and design philosophy that Huawei did in order to design and manufacture their smartphones while retaining a "consumer-centric" focus on innovation.
For example, the Huawei P20 Pro is the first smartphone of its kind to come equipped with a 40MP + 20MP + 8MP image sensor in the rear. Not only that, but the aforementioned device was also ranked number 1 on DxOMark’s camera-centric website with a score of 109.
