The sabotage of Huawei’s smartphone business by the US Government has put Samsung back on the map in Europe during Q2, with the Korean company recording a spectacular surge and its highest market share for five years. Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi had an even more impressive growth spurt in the quarter, according to UK based analyst firm Canalysis.
Number one telco Huawei surged ahead of the smartphone market in China in Q2 2019 to achieve the highest market share for any vendor in eight years, according to global research firm Canalysis.
In case you haven’t noticed, practically every man, woman and child has a smartphone these days and in concert with this ubiquity has come an increasing unwillingness for consumers to pay through the nose for premium flagship models. The market is fast becoming commoditised and the great white hope for smartphone makers is the advent of 5G but are they clutching at straws?
This is an unbearably good headline :-)
Great Stuff Sam - I wish this could go out to a larger audience.
5G will save us, and the NBN will have to be redone anyway.
As always, a great article Sam.
I will never forgive him.
