According to statistics, Huawei P20 and P20 Pro worth CNY 100 million (~Rs. 1.84 billion or $15.9 million) were sold within 10 seconds after being put on sale at Huawei’s online store.

Other Flash Sales

This is an impressive number. Huawei’s previous P series phones P9 and P9 Plus managed to sell 10 million units worldwide. This was back in 2016 when the company achieved its goal of selling 140 million smartphones globally.

About Huawei P20 and P20 Pro

The two flagship phones were revealed at an event in Paris last month. Both P20 and P20 Pro look largely similar with a bezel-less notched display and a glass build.

Both phones feature an IPS display with a fingerprint sensor on the bottom and come with Huawei’s homegrown Kirin 970 SoC.

The P20 Pro has a triple camera setup on the back, a first for a smartphone, with 40 MP, 8 MP and 20 MP sensors. P20, on the other hand, has a dual camera setup instead.
