Huawei’s P20 series shipments crossed over 6 million units worldwide. This was claimed by the Chinese tech company, at the Asia leg of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018. Huawei’s P20 series features the Huawei P20 Pro, which is the world’s first smartphone with a triple-rear camera configuration. There’s also a P20 with a dual-rear camera and a P20 Lite.
While the P20 Pro competes with other flagship phones, such as Apple’s iPhone X, the Samsung Galaxy S9+ and Google’s Pixel 2 XL, the P20 Lite is a mid-range smartphone. Commenting on the success of the phones, Kevin Ho, President of Huawei’s Handsets Product Line, said “The incredible reception and sales performance of the Huawei P20 Series demonstrate that we understand our markets, and show our commitment to innovation and R&D.”
