If there weren’t U.S. restrictions and bans, Huawei and Apple would have been the only smartphone leaders said Yu Chengdong, Huawei CEO of Smart Device and Consumer Business Group and CEO of Huawei Smart Car Business Unit.
Yu’s remark came during a press meeting at China Automobile Blue Book Forum in Wuhan Economic Development Zone.
Yu added that his words may not be modest, but the smartphone market is a compound result of efforts from Huawei and Apple and deserved to be true smartphone leaders. At the same time, Huawei’s leader also mentioned that others are small manufacturers including the “Korean company” which may be mainly selling smartphones in the US and South Korea, while other markets were in the grip of Huawei.
However, the smartphone industry keeps on reshuffling and the current competition is very brutal, therefore, it’s very hard for any smartphone maker to keep on progressing while getting beaten up with sanctions.
Although, Yu didn’t mention it specifically but we could understand that there’s one and only South Korean firm that is ruling over the smartphone world and it’s Samsung.
Back in 2019, Huawei has been sanctioned by the U.S. commerce department under the name of “Entity List“, which prohibits the Chinese tech maker to sell or purchase any required components or software services. Some of these services were crucial to building new products such as 5G chipsets as well as Google Mobile Services (GMS).
The lack of essential services and hardware requirements has caused a big difficulty for Huawei and forced it to reduce its mobile production, which later result in a huge sales drop.
Furthermore, Huawei had to cut its ties with the former smartphone subsidiary – Honor, which has been a great supporter of its overall smartphone market share in mainland China.
Samsung and others took advantage:
Huawei’s slowdown in the smartphone market has brought in major opportunities for other phone makers such as Samsung, Apple, and other Chiense phone makers. Consumers started looking for alternatives and Samsung in the global market, while Oppo, Vivo, and Xiaomi took their part of share in respective markets.
Since it’s an outcome of what has happened before, we cannot blame anyone except for the U.S. sanctions, and yes, if Huawei wasn’t sanctioned, it would have been on top defeating Samsung in the first place.

Huawei brings 5G to fishing boats
Recently, China Unicom Guangdong and the 5G Huawei “Digital Fishing Boat” project won the 2023 GSMA “5G Productivity Challenge Award” by installing 5G to fishing boats for various use cases.
This achievement includes efforts of the two companies to jointly create new 5G technologies, build a 5G operation ecosystem, and promote industrial digitalization through the “5G Fast City” while ensuring the growth of 5G applications.
David Pringle, a GSMA judge and a senior analyst at Pringle Media, pointed out: “On the more than 450 kilometers of coastline in Yangjiang City, Guangdong Province, 5G is completely changing the lives of fishermen, allowing them to keep abreast of weather conditions, sell fish and other products when they go fishing. Stay connected with your family. Guangdong Unicom’s digital fishing boat system has provided services for more than 4,000 fishing boats, and it can also assist the local fishery administration to mitigate the impact of typhoons and combat illegal fishing operations.”
Guangdong Unicom and Huawei used China Unicom’s 5G private network PLUS product system to develop the 5G digital fishing boats system.
Using 5G, cloud computing, the Internet of Things, and Beidou positioning technologies, it can realize all-weather dynamic monitoring of fishing boats’ offshore operations. Through the 5G MetaAAU ultra-large-scale antenna array, the system gives full play to the advantages of the large bandwidth of the 3.5G frequency band, and can still maintain the access capability of 60Mbps downlink and 2Mbps uplink in the 61km far sea range.
On the “digital fishing boat”, fishermen can not only watch the news, but also keep abreast of weather warnings and other information, and make high-definition video calls with their families. In the event of an emergency on the fishing boat, fishermen can call for help with one click through the app and get assistance in time. Fishermen can also use the app to link to major e-commerce platforms and sell seafood products across the country through e-commerce channels.
Guangdong Unicom plans to further promote the digital fishing boat system and provide related services for 40,000 to 50,000 fishing boats in Guangdong Province. At the same time, Guangdong Unicom and Huawei also plan to carry out innovative cooperation with industrial partners in the fields of offshore wind power, offshore pastures, and island tourism through the “5G Fast City”.
