Additionally, smartphone shipments reached 139 million units presenting a year-on-year growth of 29 percent.

We believe our success is a direct result of our consumer and innovation-centric approach, as well as our ongoing commitment to building a premium brand.

Huawei unveiled EMUI 5.0 – their latest operating system software that is deeply integrated with the Kirin chipset and contains 20 Huawei patented technologies.2016 also saw the introduction of Huawei’s first dual-lens camera technology featured on a flagship device. These were designed in conjunction with industry expert Leica Camera AG and by the end of the year Huawei had developed two generations of dual-camera technology. This not only set the industry ablaze and established new benchmarks for image quality but also, it made the Huawei P9 and Mate 9 very popular amongst consumers.In September 2016, Huawei also founded the Max Berek Innovation Lab alongside Leica Camera AG.
