Huawei and U.S. ban conflicts have been a constant topic to discuss among smartphone users. In recent times, the Chinese company has faced several obstacles in its work field due to the U.S. government and its regulations.
Although the tech giant is still trying hard to maintain its foot in the world. Yet, I believe that Huawei would have been in the first position in smartphone sales if the U.S. ban had not existed.
We are well aware of the fact that why U.S. lawsuits have prohibited Huawei from its boundaries. As per their mindsets, the respective firm is a great threat to security and could spy on and damage telecommunication networks.
However, Huawei claims that the banning procedure was unconstitutional. None of the law officials allowed the company to keep its point. Without any specific proof, they have blocked the manufacturer from prominent businesses.
Anyhow, the results have been quite destructive for Huawei. Though the company surpassed Samsung and became the world’s top smartphone maker in April 2020. Still, the U.S. ban is a constant hurdle between several growing aspects.
Smartphone Sales Drop
U.S. prohibition’s drastic effect was visible in Huawei smartphone sales. Since the restriction has pulled the GMS (Google Mobile Services from Huawei devices, it reduced the company’s fan base among consumers.
And it’s pretty obvious. In a world dominated by Google services, no one would like to have a gadget without GMS. Hence, Huawei begins to decline in smartphone sales in the global market.
However, the company didn’t give up and constantly made efforts to hype its smartphone tendency in the merchandise. Huawei introduced AppGallery, HarmonyOS, and several Huawei Mobile Services that promise to be much better than Google.
Consequently, hard work paid off and Huawei overtook Samsung in April 2020 without GMS capabilities. Even at times of the COVID-19 pandemic when the market was not in favor of tech makers, the Chinese firm hiked its share by 40%.
This hike in China helped the company to pace up in the global smartphone market with neutral growth.
Intelligent smartphone technologies
New techs and features
On the flip side, we should not forget that Huawei has imposed several eye-catching features on its devices. According to me, Satellite Connectivity is the best example. The company has launched the feature with Mate 50 series and is now pushing it for the Mate Xs 2 devices.
It’s interesting to note that Google has started following Huawei’s lead. Yes, the recent report hints that Android 14 will bring a satellite communication feature on its surface. Besides, Samsung also hearsay to adopt the respective technology for its Galaxy devices.
Next comes the security terminology. Though U.S. officials have banned Huawei due to security concerns. But I feel Huawei’s security functions are more robust than those of Google and Android.
The Chinese manufacturer has always safeguarded users’ privacy. From efficient security patches to thoughtful features like a Private Space and a finer authentication process, Huawei phones protect your essentials from both – internal and external exploits.
Let’s not ignore the camera technologies that Huawei has implemented in its devices, so far. From Leica to the massive XMAGE imaging technology, the company has given a new definition to the term “photography”.
Further, we have always caught some new changes with every Huawei smartphone. Either the high-end variable aperture, extraordinary periscope lens, or eye-catching optical functions such as Capture Smiles, the company has offered the best snap-shot experience to its users.
With such high-level features, there was no doubt that Huawei would have been No.1 in smartphone sales without the U.S. ban. As of now, Huawei’s device business decline has begun to slow down which is a good sign for the company.
Chipset Technology is another important sector
Apart from smartphone sales chipset technology is another sector that has been affected due to U.S. restrictions. Consequently, Huawei is not allowed to contact U.S. business partners. Neither it can purchase nor supply any object to the country.
Eventually, this marked a full stop on semiconductor manufacturing. Let’s see how much time will it take to make everything normal in Huawei’s world.
