Huawei keeps its sights on Apple amid battle at home

TAIPEI -- Huawei Technologies, China's largest smartphone maker, boasted on Tuesday that it may soon challenge Apple in the global market, since it expects shipments to grow this year while iPhone demand is slipping.

In 2015, South Korea's Samsung Electronics was the world's top smartphone brand by volume, shipping more than 300 million handsets. Apple ranked second, with 230 million handsets shipped. Huawei trailed the U.S. titan, shipping 108 million units.
