Last month, Huawei removed the 5G shortcut switch from HarmonyOS operating system. This embarked a discussion on Huawei device owners and the company later clarified that the latest change is coming from network operators, not Huawei itself.
However, Huawei is not the only one to do this because in the latest development of this story a well-known smartphone maker has applied the same changes.
We’re talking about Samsung, as the South Korean phone maker has recently rolled out a new One UI software update that comes with very familiar changes in 5G section. According to the changelog, the latest Samsung One UI update removes the 5G icon from the notification panel.
We’ve not heard Samsung on this matter but Bruce Lee, president of Huawei’s consumer business product line has provided a statement previously. He said it’s found that many users have bought 5G phones but turned off the 5G switch in use. However, users will always have the option to switch on or off the 5G network access any time from Settings.
In contrast, the operators in China do not want users to switch from 4G to implement the 5G network in the country. This becomes the reason for disabling the 5G shortcut from the shortcut switches in the quick access bar. Similar to Huawei, Samsung phone users can switch network mode via Settings.
To do so:
- Open Settings
- Go to Connections
- Then tap Mobile Network >> Network mode
Though the changelog also mentioned that the South Koren phone maker has made this decision following the terms and conditions of CMCC (China Mobile Communications Corporation). In addition, this update also removed one application named CMCC Online Business Hall from the smartphones.
It’s expected that other smartphone makers in China including Xiaomi, Realme, Oppo, Vivo, and others may soon remove 5G switches from their devices as well and comply with the latest telecom network standard.

Samsung, LG Smart TV market share declines in Q2 2022, while Huawei still doing great
Huawei knows very well how to maintain the quality of the products with time and make it stand at the top in the market. And here is the proof, recently released information indicates that while the top vendors have received a major decline in the Smart TV global market share, Huawei is still doing great with its products.
So far, we acknowledged that the global market for electronic equipment has fallen in the past few months. Consequently, this made a huge impact on the sales of smart gadgets including handset models, tablets, computers, and smart screens.
Unfortunately, this decline in equipment sales has given a major jerk to some of the high-tech manufacturers. According to the latest information, Samsung and LG are constantly facing a gradual decrease in their Smart TV sale.
The first quarter of this year remained at a moderate level for both parties. Samsung was standing at 32.9 percent of the market share while LG gained 17.7 percent. Together, they had a market share of 50.6 percent. However, in the second quarter, the combined market shares directly went below 50 percent.
Thereafter comes the Sony cooperation ranking at the third position with a decrease of 35.8 percent on yearly basis. If we talk about the reasons, it’s undoubtedly the high cost and lower demands of Smart TV in the global market.
Huawei Smart TV market share is at a good point!
It’s not only the global market, but even Chinese merchandise has faced the same scenario in the case of smart screen sales. In comparison to the first half, the Chinese Smart TV market has decreased to 10.5 percent. Yet, there are some brands such as Huawei, Redmi, and Hisense’s Vidda that made a good stand in tough circumstances as well.
Although we didn’t grab the accurate sales of the company. Yet, as per the reports, Huawei Smart TV sales have increased in both – the Chinese and the global market. Huawei brings on such products that are not only affordable but also performance-oriented. Ultimately, this strategy makes its devices higher in demand among consumers.
