Moreover, he additionally revealed that Huawei shipped 105 million smartphones worldwide. This makes it the primary smartphone model within the first half of this 12 months.
In keeping with Yu Chengdong, within the second quarter of this 12 months, Huawei’s world cell phone shipments surpassed Samsung. This gave the Chinese language producer the world’s primary spot. Moreover, he stated that Huawei was “handcuffed” by sanctions and it was an unfair race. Nonetheless, the corporate nonetheless hit the highest place. What does this say in regards to the capability of Huawei? Holding on for shut to 2 years and surpassing different manufacturers with bans in place is commendable.
Mr. Yu believes that Huawei would have overtaken Samsung final 12 months if there have been no U.S. ban. Nonetheless, he predicts that Huawei’s world smartphone shipments might be decrease than final 12 months’s 240 million models. That is clearly because of the a number of sanctions by the U.S. The corporate now has to cope with its chip provide. It can’t do enterprise with TSMC because of the U.S. ban. Which means that it can’t produce its Kirin flagship chips.
Nonetheless, outdoors the cell phone trade, Huawei’s client enterprise different merchandise present fast progress.

It will likely be fascinating to see how Huawei will address its chip provide scarcity. In reality, we can’t inform what’s going to occur to the Huawei P50 sequence scheduled for subsequent 12 months. Maybe, Huawei should flip to MediaTek for its mid – and excessive – finish chips. For its low-end and a few mid-range chips, Chinese language foundries like SMIC can produce its Kirin chips. Nonetheless, it stays to be seen if MediaTek can deal with Huawei’s orders. We nonetheless can’t inform if some legislation will get up to cease Huawei from doing enterprise with MediaTek.
