Huawei is once again at the top of the Chinese market with its 4G folding smartphones. The company achieved a 53.2 percent market share and become the No.1 foldable maker in China.
Recently, the CINNO Research cooperation released the “Q3 2022 foldable market share in China” report. Accordingly, the report shows how the tech makers and their folding devices have performed in the region.
Eventually, the foldable device sales in China reached 723,000 units in the third quarter of this year. This is a valuable growth of approx 114% on the yearly basis. Further, the report displays Huawei’s success which is more interesting on the surface.
Despite a variety of folding phones with 5G facilities, Huawei scored the first position in the Chinese folding phone market with its 4G models. This achievement made Huawei the ultimate king of foldable phones in China.
Huawei – champion of the folding phone market
The latest input reveals that Huawei gained a market share of 53.2% for its foldable gadgets which is an increase of 95% year-on-year basis. Alongside Huawei, Samsung grabbed the second position with 20.5%
Notably, the Huawei P50 Pocket is the leading device in the Chinese foldable market. It remained at the top in the market with extreme sales results for three succeeding quarters (From Q1 to Q3, this year).
In addition to the flip-flop model, the Mate Xs 2 has also shown good performance in the sales aspects. To be specific, Huawei has proven that the company will continue to excel in the smartphone market, with or without 5G.
Huawei Pocket S – a new contender
While old Huawei 4G foldable devices are already giving tough competition to the tech makers, the company has introduced one more smart gadget – Pocket S. The phone is a cheaper version of the P50 Pocket without any compromise in the features.
Undoubtedly, the new foldable will significantly increase the demand for folding phones in the market. With its fascinating appearance and eye-catching features, it will soon rule over the Chinese phone market.
Speaking of 5G implementation, the Huawei Consumer Business Group CEO and Smart Car BG head – Yu Chengdong said the following statement:
“Huawei as a global leader in 5G, is the only manufacturer selling 4G mobile phones in the 5G era.”
Though the CEO said the statement sarcastically, somewhere it’s a bitter truth. But it seems like the 5G unavailability doesn’t affect much of the company’s success. However, users are still waiting to hold the Huawei 5G smartphone back in their hands.
Huawei Kirin and HarmonyOS appears in Chinese study syllabus
According to the inputs coming from Weibo, Huawei Kirin, HarmonyOS operating system and other self-developed Huawei technologies appeared in the study test syllabus question book.
A picture shared online shows questions that have carried out an inventory of the product names of China’s most influential technology companies. And said that these product names are very distinctive, including the mobile chipset “Kirin”, the operating system “HarmonyOS”, the server chip “Kunpeng” and more.
The latest appearance of these popular technologies is the result of the people behind the development that put countless hours to bring them into reality.
U.S. wants to cut Qualcomm supplies to Huawei
The U.S. wants to impose further restrictions on Huawei to completely cut off the supply chains including the goods from Qualcomm and Intel. We could just call it the latest addition to the U.S. administration’s obsession with Huawei.
Reuters reports that the U.S. Government under Joe Biden has come up with a new policy of denial to sell items to Huawei. The list of denial now goes beyond 5G to cover products for 4G, WiFi 6, WiFi 7, A.I., and high-performance cloud computing and cloud items.
A person familiar with the matter revealed that the Biden administration wants to tighten its grip on Huawei and the reversing the approval of 4G chip technology transfer. However, these chips were also approved under the early office of Biden himself.
Back in 2019, the former U.S. president ordered to put Huawei into the so-called Entity List, which bans other companies from selling their goods to Huawei. This led to massive outages in Huawei’s supply chain, as the intent was to empty Huawei from all of its tech access.
So, It lost Google mobile services, 5G chipset, and other crucial components used in telecom products. These sanctions didn’t have effect immediately but the U.S. government staged them to check the impact on the Chinese tech maker.
Qualcomm and intel are one of these companies that were approved to ship their chip to Huawei. Thereafter, Huawei continues to use Qualcomm chips in its all products whether its flagship, mid-range, or tablet device. Therefore, the U.S. likely come upfront to cut Qualcomm and Intel from Huawei.
For the time being, reports are colliding that the latest decision has been made, while a few suggest that the decision is under discussion. Either way, it’s a decision made by a government sitting in a fantasy land and licking a fantasy popsicle.
Why not? The U.S. banned Huawei out of nowhere, and the U.S. government puts a ban on Huawei every year to showcase in the name of protecting U.S. citizens, while it’s just a matter of some headlines that come after such a step.
The U.S. administration thinks that attacking Huawei means attacking China, while the U.S. continues to ship a large number of technologies to many big Chinese smartphone makers. Would, the U.S. also consider cutting ties with them as well, it won’t be a matter of national security.
Truth be told, Huawei is the only company that dominated both the network and smartphone market, and there’s an old saying “When you can’t beat the odds change the game”. Odds have always been in favor of Huawei but the U.S. is continuously changing the game since 2019. But the question is, for how long?
Many Huawei technologies are hard to surpass: Huawei CEO
Huawei Consumer Business CEO, Yu Chengdong is filled with a lot of enthusiasm and he is the man behind the success of Huawei smartphones, as he said many of the company’s technologies are hard to surpass by other firms.

There’s also a mention of the satellite communication feature and it is developed by a team of people with an average age of 30 years. Huawei is the first to launch such technology in the smartphone industry and make it a success in first use.
XMAGE is also a tech that Yu emphasized as a major change in Huawei smartphones. The phone maker brings a new revolution in mobile photography, as is clearly visible in the Mate 50 lineup.
Previously, Yu Chengdong said that “the difficulty ten years ago was that no one recognized or knew Huawei’s brand, but today, ten years later, we have accumulated a lot of core technologies and core capabilities.” Yu Chengdong emphasized that innovative technologies are hard-won, However, Huawei will not be afraid of challenges, insist on investing in research and development, keep climbing, and continue to lead the industry forward.”
He further revealed the moment he was proud of the smartphone, recalling that Mate 7 achieved great commercial success, in the beginning, Huawei had no expectations about its sale but it was purchased by people all over China.
