Huawei’s Mate 60 series has reached a sales milestone, it seems. The Huawei Mate 60 series crossed the 30 million sales mark after the devices were announced back in August 2023.
The Huawei Mate 60 series managed to cross the 30 million sales mark
One thing to note is that the Huawei Mate 60 series was announced in China only, it did not get a global variant. These numbers are even more impressive if you take that into account.
One of the main reasons people are so interested in the Huawei Mate 60 series is the included chip. Those devices are fueled by the Kirin 9000S processor. That is Huawei’s new chip, and even though it cannot compete with the best out there, it does enable 5G connectivity on the Mate 60 series. That’s something Huawei didn’t have access to for years… on smartphones.
Now, there are also high expectations for the Huawei Mate 70 series. Those phones are said to compete directly with the iPhone 16 series, well, at least in China. It remains to be seen what will Huawei’s strategy be outside of its homeland.
The iPhone 15 Pro Max was the best-selling smartphone in China in October. It grabbed 5% of the market, compared to 4% that the Mate 60 Pro and the iPhone 15 Pro managed to grab. Huawei is quite popular in China, as is Apple. Apple is currently at the top of the Chinese market with 20.2%, while Huawei is third with 15.2%. That’s a 71.1% year-on-year growth for Huawei, though.
The Huawei Mate 70 series launch timeline gets tipped, allegedly coming in September
Speaking of which, the Huawei Mate 70 series launch timeline got tipped. Those devices are expected to arrive in September this year. So, they will arrive a bit later than the Mate 60 series did last year.
It remains to be seen what will happen with the Huawei Mate 70 series. Huawei is set to use a new chip with those phones, but SMIC is still limited to 7nm processors. So… we’ll see what will happen.
Also, before the Mate 70 series comes knocking, the Huawei P70 series is expected to drop. Those devices are actually expected to launch in the coming months. The Huawei P60 series dropped in March last year.
