Huawei Mate60 Pro Overshadows Apple, research says

The mysterious and controversial cellphone, Huawei Mate 60 Pro, sold 1.6 million units within 6 weeks of being available on the market. 

Of the total sales figures, 400 thousand units were sold out in the last 2 weeks. 

This period coincides with the launch of the iPhone 15 series from Apple, according to research firm Counterpoint, Friday (20/10/2023). 

In the first 17 days on sale, sales of the iPhone 15 were recorded to have decreased by 4.5% compared to the iPhone 14 released last year. 

The Huawei Mate 60 Pro, which is selling well on the market, has made the Chinese manufacturer return to first place in its hometown. Apple's position, which for years has been the ruler of HP in China, has finally fallen to 2nd place. 

Weak demand for the iPhone 15 in China is affecting global sales. Counterpoint data shows that sales of Apple cellphones fell 9% in Q3 2023 year-on-year (YoY). 

It is known that Huawei made a surprise by launching the flagship HP Mate 60 Pro at the end of last August. This cellphone supports the 5G network and has made the United States (US) authorities fire.
