Huawei’s online-only sub-brand first announced its latest flagship smartphone, the Honor 9, in China in mid-June. Then, towards the end of last month, it got officially introduced for Europe too.
And now, just 28 days after sales of the Honor 9 have started, the CEO of the sub-brand has some exciting news to share – namely, that it’s already managed to sell more than a million units. For comparison, consider that it took the Honor 8 around two months to reach 1.5 million units sold.
One million sales in 28 days constitutes record-breaking performance for an Honor smartphone, and CEO Zhao Ming is obviously very pleased with this achievement. However, the success of the Honor 9 has also meant that the phone is now in short supply, because Honor did not expect such wild sales numbers. Zhao Ming apologized to those who wanted to grab an Honor 9 but couldn’t because of stocking issues, and promised to work tirelessly to ensure that production levels catch up to the demand.
Thanks for the tip, Steve!
