South Korean media said Huawei could overtake Samsung as a leader in the mobile phone industry. Huawei’s handsets are now already a complete leader in the Chinese market, with a market share of close to 50 percent (including the Glory brand), while Samsung’s share has hovered around 1 percent, the report said. For the latter, it is almost impossible to do it to win again in the world’s largest and most competitive mobile market.

Samsung ranked first in shipments in the third quarter of 2019, with 78.9 million units with a market share of 22.4%, while Huawei followed with a market share of 19% in the third quarter of this year to 66.8 million units, up 29% year-on-year, according to a previous report. The gap between shipments has narrowed to about 12 million units.

At the same time, I also put forward to the Huawei team a point of demand, that is, Huawei to enter each field must do the first, do not enter the first, into must do the first. ”
Mr Yu pointed out that Huawei had now become China’s largest watch factory and headphone factory, and that huawei’s Pad had overtaken Apple as The first market share in China in the third quarter. At the same time, the PC is also Huawei has just entered the field, if there are no other external factors this year, Huawei’s thin and thin may be the first.

It is reported that at the internal meeting, Yu Chengdong fully affirmed last year’s achievements, but also praised the Chinese market, it is precisely because of the strong performance of the Chinese market, to make up for the loss of Huawei mobile phones overseas. Huawei’s share of the domestic smartphone market reached 42% in the third quarter of this year, with an annual growth rate of 66%, according to a number of third-party research firms. In a sluggish domestic market environment, this is Huawei’s sixth consecutive quarter of double-digit growth.

Last year, Huawei shipped 206m handsets, and initial estimates of 230m are expected to grow 12 per cent this year. This also basically completes Yu Chengdong’s request at the beginning of the year, that is, to hope that Huawei’s handset shipments this year exceeded last year’s.
