China’s Huawei Technologies wishes to become the world’s second-largest maker of smartphones in a span of two years time, according to chief executive of Huawei’s consumer business group, Richard Yu.
Huawei currently sits at third spot for the biggest smartphone maker. Apple tops the chart followed by Samsung in second. Huawei has been impressive in being one of the biggest smartphone maker despite only being active in the consumer device market for only a few years.
“When we announced four years ago that we wanted to sell phones, people told us we were crazy. When we said we wanted to sell 100 million phones, they told us we were crazy.” Yu said.
Huawei has recently launched their new premier phone on Thursday which will sell in an estimated amount of 777 a piece. Another version which is developed with a Porsche design will cost 1,550.
“We are going to take them (Apple) step by step, innovation by innovation.”
“There will be more opportunities, artificial intelligence, virtual reality. It is like driving a car. At every curve or turn, there is an opportunity to overtake the competition.” Yu added.
