That’s a big, bold statement
Huawei has reported that they’ve managed to ship around 10 million Mate 20 smartphones since their release last year, marking a phenomenal achievement from the Chinese manufacturer.
The Chinese company has achieved this impressive feat in just four and half months, and with the considerable handicap of not being able to sell their smartphones in the one of the world’s biggest and most profitable markets in the world: the United States.
Thank you to everyone who has helped us achieve an incredible 10,000,000 shipments of the #HUAWEIMate20 Series since it was launched in October,2018. We have been overwhelmed by your continued support and will strive to keep improving our full product range. pic.twitter.com/Alyu8KdwhZ

The caveat in Huawei’s announcement is the fact that there are multiple Mate 20 variants sold worldwide: the Mate 20, the Mate 20 Pro, the Mate 20 X, the ridiculously expensive Porche Design Mate 20 RS and the Mate 20 Lite.
Huawei’s P20 and P20 Pro needed around five months to cross the same milestone, and their Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro, which was available in the US with warranties from stores weren’t able to cross that threshold.
Still, Huawei’s achievement is impressive on its own, and the company is looking to sell even more smartphones once its new flagship P30 line is announced at the end of the month.
