This results in shrinking smartphone shares in both the mainland as well as overseas markets. Additionally, the US sanction is also creating some challenges in the development of HarmonyOS.

Moreover, some unknown industry analysts reported the current situation of Huawei on decline smartphone share and their suggestions for HarmonyOS.

“First there have to be smartphones, then will come the growth of the software ecosystem,” an industry analyst told to Global Times

“To develop the OS ecosystem, it has to resolve its devices-making problem first, or it has to seek cooperation with other smartphone makers and convince them to use the new system – and that will take some time,” said the analyst.

Recently, Catalyst released the smartphone shipment report of the Chinese market for the first quarter of 2021 in which Huawei ranked third with market shares of 16%. However, the Vivo and Oppo secure the first and second positions respectively.
