Huawei to Ship 100 Million Smartphones in Overseas Push

Updated on

Huawei Technologies Co. will boost smartphone shipments by a third this year and surpass 100 million units as the company makes a greater push to target high-end consumers and international markets.

Smartphone shipments will increase from 75 million last year, Shao Yang, vice president of marketing for the Consumer Business Group, said on a conference call Tuesday. The Shenzhen, China-based company plans to boost the portion of sales from high-end devices -- including the Mate 7, P7, or Honor 6 -- to more than 30 percent from 18 percent, he said.
