Huawei is a leader not only in the segment of telecommunication equipment for 5G networks, but also a leading manufacturer of smartphones with 5G.
At today’s conference to sum up the first quarter of the year, Huawei revealed interesting statistics. Thus, the firm said that in the first three months of the year shipments of smartphones with 5G support reached 15 million units. In this niche, Huawei takes first place in China, and with the release of cheap models with support for 5G, it will only strengthen its position.
The 15 million units represent 33.2% of the global 5G smartphone market and 55.4% of the home market. As of May this year, Huawei’s range includes 19 models with 5G support in various price niches – from 280 to 2250. Release of more affordable Huawei Enjoy Z 5G will further reduce the threshold for users to enter this segment. On the other hand, due to the next US sanctions against the Chinese company, Huawei may face certain difficulties in further increasing its share in the smartphone market. And not only models with 5G support.
