Foreign Media: Huawei’s Strong Performance and Apple’s Big Loser in the Trade War


Reference News Network reported on August 2 that market tracking company said on July 31 that Huawei remained the world’s second largest smartphone seller in the last quarter, despite severe U.S. sanctions imposed on China’s technology giant Huawei.
According to Agence France-Presse on July 31, Huawei managed to increase its sales despite the overall market recession, continuing to catch up with Samsung, the industry leader, and lead Apple in the United States.
Global smartphone sales fell 2.6% in the second quarter to 341 million units, according to US Strategic Analysis.
Samsung’s market share rose to 22%, thanks to a 7% increase in sales of mobile phones, mainly mid-range models and entry-level models.
The Korean giant continues to dominate the market with 17% and 11% of Huawei and Apple, respectively.
The report quoted Neil Moston, executive director of Strategic Analysis, as saying: “Huawei surprises everyone, with global shipments of smartphones increasing by 8% annually. As Huawei strives to eliminate regulatory uncertainties in key regions such as North America and Western Europe, its domestic sales have been greatly increased in the last quarter.
According to German newspaper Le Monde on July 31, Huawei, a Chinese technology giant, withstood pressure from the United States. According to data released by Huawei, the company’s annual sales grew by nearly a quarter in the first half of this year, reaching 51.4 billion euros (1 euro is about 7.6 yuan).
Since May, Huawei has had to adjust its supply chain because many U.S. companies, including giants such as Qualcomm and Intel, are no longer allowed to supply components to the manufacturer. Google has also had to announce that it will stop providing service support to Huawei in the future. This applies to applications such as Google Mailbox, Google Maps and the application market. The upgrade of Android, the mobile operating system, has also been affected. These measures were eventually delayed for 90 days.
