Huawei’s P9 Gets Record Sales of 9 Million Units in 7 Months

Huawei’s game changing dual-lens smartphone P9 was launched in Pakistan and across the globe just 7 months ago. It wasn’t the first phone to offer dual-lens setup, but surely was the first to feature Leica certified optics.

Today Huawei has claimed that within 7 months the company was able to sell more than 9 million units of P9 worldwide, making it one of the most successful device from the Chinese manufacturer.

P9 smartphone could reach ten or eleven million units sold by the end of 2016 or early 2017 – Changzhu Li, VP Huawei Consumer Business Group

It merits mentioning here that after P9, Huawei continued the dual-lens setup with Honor 8 and Mate 9, both of these were recently launched in Pakistan as well.
