Huawei Mate 60 Series Surpasses iPhone 15 Sales in China

The launch of the Huawei Mate 60 series surprised the world. And if you’ve missed our previous reports, it’s mostly because of the Kirin 9000S chipset. It’s Huawei’s first chipset in years. Besides making a technological push, Huawei is also slowly regaining the market in China.

According to the latest report from Counterpoint Research, Huawei sold 1.6 million Mate 60 phones after the launch. This has caused a major dent in competitor’s business in the Chinese market. How so? The series has sold more than the iPhone 15 after.

What’s more interesting is that the Huawei Mate 60 series phones sold more than before when Apple officially launched the iPhone 15 in the region.

Around 400 Thousand Units of Huawei Mate 60 Series Were Shipped When Apple Launched the iPhone 15

Counterpoint Research couldn’t give an exact breakdown of the models that were sold during the period. But it did note that Huawei shipped 1.6 million units in just six weeks. That’s a very large number of units shipped for a relatively small amount of time.

Previously, analysts have estimated a shipment drop of 4.5% in the first 17 days for the iPhone 15 when compared to the iPhone 14. And while the shipments of Apple fell, the popularity of Huawei Mate 60 phones rose. Now, a 4.5% drop may not seem much. But this small percentage equates to millions of units.

China is of paramount importance for Apple. It’s the region that Apple ships the highest number of iPhones by volume. But with Huawei’s resurgence with the Mate 60 series, it seems things are about to become difficult for Apple.

Huawei Kirin 9000S

What’s more important is Huawei has already ramped up Kirin production for sufficient supplies. But again, SMIC, the foundry behind the Huawei Kirin 9000S, doesn’t have access to advanced EUV machines at the moment. This could limit the company from making advancements in the Huawei processors.
