Huawei has managed to reinvent himself. Far from it are the low-end, low-quality devices that offered a horrific user experience. Nowadays, buying an Asian brand device is a wise move because of its great value for money. The improvement in components and optimization of the operating system are remarkable. In fact, is the firm that sells the most smartphones in China and, soon, it could be the one that sells the most in other parts of the world. Even surpassing Apple.
Huawei will take the throne from Apple before the end of 2018
The numbers speak for themselves. So far this year, has sold 100 million smartphones , the highest shipping rate it has ever seen. So says mobile segment leader Richard Yu Chengdong.
In 2017, the Asian company sold a total of 153 million smartphones . For its part, Apple reached 215 million. The goal of surpassing the bitten apple will be thanks to the joint sales of Huawei and Honor devices, its other brand.
Huawei’s strategy is to expand to other regions such as the Indian subcontinent , where Apple has barely a presence and has not even reached the point of marketing one million iPhones during the first half of 2018.
According to analyst Zaker Li, from IHS Markit , Huawei will not be hard to beat in sales to Apple.
Apple did not just take off in India
India is a territory that still resists Apple. Like China, is a giant that is starting to wake up . Cupertino’s people know this, and that’s why they started manufacturing the iPhone SE in the country, so that the inhabitants – whose salaries are quite low – could afford the phone as they don’t have to add import costs.
Also, has started to do the same with the iPhone 6s to offer more variety of sizes, as the internal features between both models are quite similar.
Huawei is going all out , and he’s not going to make it easy for the creators of the iPod.
