A week of good news for Huawei. The company reported its global smartphone sales jumped by 39 percent in the first half of the year.
The results come just two days after the world’s fourth biggest smartphone maker posted a 30 percent growth in overall revenue.
The Chinese tech giant said it shipped 48.2 million devices globally in the first half of 2015 which translates to a huge 87 percent surge in handset sales revenues.
The company doubled its revenue in China and is now on the tail of Apple.
But the US giant still reigns supreme in China where sales of the iPhone gave a leg up to Apple’s revenue in the quarter ending in June and now make up over 25 percent of the company’s global business.
Apple reported another jump in profits with sales of the iPhone up 35 percent from a year ago topping the 47 million mark worldwide.
Profits rose 38 percent to 10.7 billion dollars while revenue was up 33 percent to 49.6 billion dollars.
