Global smartphone sales have declined within the second quarter of this year and Samsung seems to be hit the foremost and thus, Huawei is predicted to overtake Samsung as the leading smartphone brand in Q2 2020.
As per the report, shipments of Samsung devices are expected to possess seen a decline of 30 percent. On the opposite hand, shipments of Huawei smartphones are said to possess just slightly declined. Thus, it seems that the Chinese giant is going to be overtaking Samsung because of the world’s largest smartphone maker in Q2 2020.
Currently, China seems to be making a difference for Huawei. Samsung features a 1 percent market share within the region, while Huawei owns 60 percent of the market.
Huawei has already managed to topple Samsung’s Global market throne within the month of April and should. it’s just like the company will claim the whole quarter. this is often especially impressive considering how the United States government has been tightening its claws on the company’s operations within the US market.
In the month of May, which saw 81.97 million shipments, Huawei had a market share of 19.7 percent while Samsung was just behind it with a market share of 19.6 percent. as compared, back in April, the Chinese brand had a market share of 21.4 percent while Samsung had a 19.1 percent market share.
Although Huawei has managed to overtake Samsung to be the leading smartphone brand, it remains to be seen if the Chinese company can hold onto its position given the pressure it’s facing from the western countries. Also, the appeal for Huawei and Honor smartphones could decline due to the shortage of support for Google apps and services.
Huawei has been trying to scale back its reliance on third-party and is trying to manufacture devices through local resources. rather than Google apps and services, it’s offering its own Huawei Mobile Services with AppGallery. Recently, the U.S. added another sanction on Huawei, barring it from using American-technology for chipset making, and thus, TSMC has stopped taking new orders from the Chinese giant.
