Huawei has announced that it saw substantial growth in regional shipments in Southeast Asia. This shows that 2015 Q1 smartphone shipments in Southeast Asia achieved a 120% increase compared to last year.
Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer BG, said that Southeast Asia is one of the key markets for Huawei, and the company is very optimistic about the potential of this region.
“Southeast Asia is one of the most promising and high-potential economic entities in the world, both now and in the future. It is regarded as a strategic market and an engine driving the fast growth of Huawei’s Consumer Business. In 2014, Huawei saw over 10 million total shipments in this region. With the launch of the P8, P8Max and P8Lite this year, we expect total shipments to reach eight million units, a 167% increase,” said Yu.
To continue the momentum, Huawei introduced the P8, P8Max, P8Lite, Talkband B2 and AP007 power bank to Southeast Asia countries. The first batch of P8s became available in 28 shops across Myanmar on 6 June, selling out in a few hours.
