JD"s 618 Shopping Festival in China breaks records, Honor phones ride on top

JD.com just ended its country-wide 618 Shopping Festival in China, which ran from June 1 to June 18 and took in a record-breaking CNY 127.5 billion (that�s about $20 billion). A big chunk of that was Huawei�s Honor phones.

The sub-brand was the top earner in terms of single day sales on June 18. Honor was also #1 in sales for the whole period of the 618 festival.

Honor has been doing great at the world stage too. It�s available in over 74 countries and the company expects to see a 150% growth outside of China.

The Huawei Honor 10 has over 1 million sales under its belt, over 100,000 of which are overseas. It�s a best seller on Amazon UK in the unlocked phone category. Huawei credits its success to starting sales immediately after the global launch.

On Single"s Day last year (11/11), Honor took in CNY 4 billion ($627 million) in revenue from sales on JD.com and Tmall.
