Huawei Consumer Business Group (CBG) has today been honored with two new awards from the European Image and Sound Association (EISA). The HUAWEI P10 has been named ‘EISA Smartphone Camera 2017-2018’ and the HUAWEI WATCH 2 has been named ‘EISA Wearable Device 2017-2018’. These awards recognize Huawei’s commitment to quality, design and performance and build on the company’s track record of introducing stylish, powerful, award-winning devices. Huawei’s best-in-class products have been lauded by EISA members, who represent expert media across the full sphere of consumer electronics. Starting with the HUAWEI P6 in 2013, the Huawei P Series has been awarded “Best Consumer Smartphone” for four consecutive years, thanks to a combination of impressive specifications, beautiful design and natural user interface. In 2017, the HUAWEI P10 has received special recognition for its camera experience, co-engineered with Leica, taking the title of ‘EISA Smartphone Camera 2017-2018’. The HUAWEI P10 builds on the outstanding user experience synonymous with the P Series by providing users with everything they need to express their creativity through photography.

Huawei Consumer Business Group today announced its 2017 first half year financial results: sales revenue for the first six months of 2017 increased by 36.2% year-on-year to CNY105.4 billion. Smartphone shipments also rose to 73.01million, a year-on-year increase of 20.6%. Richard Yu, chief executive officer of Huawei’s Consumer Business Group, said, “Our Consumer Business Group continued to deliver extraordinary growth, beating the industry average and penetrating high-end markets around the globe. This ongoing growth is testament to the strength of the Huawei brand and the momentum we’ve built through delivering premium, market-redefining devices that resonate with today’s discerning consumers.” In Q1 2017, Huawei’s market share rose to 9.8 percent of the global smartphone market, according to industry analysts IDC. This growth was driven by a significant increase in sales of mid-range and high-end smartphones in key geographies. In Greater China, Huawei laid claim to 22.1 % of the market where shipments increased by 24 percent year-over-year.  Huawei also saw rapid growth in smartphone shipment across Europe, reporting 18 percent year-over-year growth with particularly robust performance in Central and Eastern and Nordic Europe. The Huawei Consumer Business Group also experienced major breakthroughs in Asia-Pacific markets including Thailand, Malaysia, Japan and South Korea. Russia also grew strongly. Meanwhile, according to the research of GfK and Sino, Huawei’s Honor brand consecutively topped both the Internet smartphone sales volume and sales revenue in China from January to May, 2017. This year on year growth was reflected in Huawei’s rise as a globally recognized premium brand. In 2017, Huawei was named number 49 on BrandZ’s Top 100 Most Valuable Global Brands, number 88 in Forbes World’s Most Valuable Brands and number 40 on the Brand Finance Global 500 Most Valuable Brands lists. “Huawei devices have resonated with global audiences because of our clear commitment to quality, experience and innovation,” continued Yu. “With a robust consumer devices ecosystem that includes critically acclaimed smartphones, tablets, wearables and now PCs, consumers know that they can trust Huawei to deliver the kind of experience they’re looking for in a premium device.” As Huawei’s brand presence grows, so too will its sales strategy. Huawei is set to grow its expansive retail network, reaching 56,000 retail stores worldwide by the end of 2017 – an increase from 35,000 in May 2016. These stores reflect the high-end, premium image that Huawei has cultivated around the world. Looking ahead, Huawei expects to spur continued growth as the company pushes its devices further through innovations in artificial intelligence and machine learning that will drive the new “smart era” forward.
