Huawei still at top while China cloud computing market has declined by 20%
Today, Canalys has released a new report regarding the cloud infrastructure of China. While the overall China cloud market has seen a downfall of 20 percent, Huawei still managed to survive and positioned itself in the top four vendors list in the cloud computing sector.
The latest reports suggest that the cloud infrastructure expenditure of China has crossed over 7.3 billion USD in the second quarter of this year. Ultimately, this is one of the main reasons behind the decline of the cloud computing market.
Besides, this 7.3 billion USD also counts for 12 percent of the overall global clouding expense. As a result, the growth of the Chinese market suddenly slowed down and came below 20 percent of the actual growth rate of the region.
Notably, this is for the first time that China has seen such a low market in its native area. Though, there is a hike of 33 percent in the growth momentum of the global cloud service market. Yet, a loss is a loss, whether it’s in the global merchandise or the native place.
Huawei cloud computing still surfing at heights in China!
Though the China market has stuck in a declining state. Regardless, four top vendors managed and maintained their leadership in the cloud computing market till the end. These include Huawei Cloud, Tencent Cloud, Baidu Smart Cloud, and Alibaba Cloud.
Alibaba Cloud’s market share reached 34 percent, with an increase of 10% and a market share drop of 2 percent. On the other hand, Huawei came up as the second-largest cloud merchandiser with 11 percent of growth year-on-year and made a share of 19 percent in the overall market.
Next, we have Tencent cloud ranking at the third position with 17 percent of China’s cloud computing market. And the fourth is Baidu Smart with 9 percent of the market share and 25 percent growth on yearly basis.
Together, these companies have accounted for 79 percent of the total spending in China. In comparison to previous quarters, these outcomes are low. Yet, it’s always good to have something than nothing!
Huawei P60 series and Mate X3 frame is made by BYD
Huawei P60 and Mate X3 are packed with top-notch hardware specs and it’s revealed that China’s BYD electronics made key components of these flagship phones including the frame and the rear cover.
According to the information, BYD electronics has been confirmed to make the lightweight and stylish frame for the Huawei P60 series and Mate X3 foldable phone.
Specifically, BYD made some extra efforts for the Huawei Mate X3, the company has come up with the slimmest and lightest frame, which sets a new record for weight reduction in any foldable smartphone.
Notably, BYD uses aviation-grade wing aluminum to create a light and thin foldable frame in the industry. The entire thickness of the middle frame is only 0.3mm.
On the other hand, the weight of two middle frame parts only weighs 38 grams, which is equivalent to the ordinary smartphone frame. However, the contribution of this component is crucial in reducing the weight of the entire smartphone.
Furthermore, BYD has continuously tested the hinge with the frame to ensure its stability and reliability with the waterproof ratings.
Looking at the design, BYD brought up the new fingerprint-proof rear panel, which comprises both a glass and frost feeling. The new design reflects an Ambilight effect from multiple angles when it comes in the contact with light.
To create such a design, the BYD Electronics development team formulated a verification plan for product characteristics. It uses the evaporation coating solution to successfully achieve color and performance.
BYD Electronic Company Limited is a Chinese company manufacturing handset components and assembling mobile phones for its customers. The company has also designed equipment for previous flagship devices such as Huawei Mate 50 and P50 Pro.

He Gang, COO of Huawei Consumer Business said that Huawei P60 Art is designed for certain types of customers and it’s already sold out during pre-sale. This shows that there are people waiting for such design innovation and grabbing it in the first place.
He Gang also said in terms of pricing, there’s no difference. The only thing that matters, is whether the customers will find it according to their preferences. This is why the P60, P60 Pro, and P60 Art are released. These are separate devices with different designs and specifications. The COO further emphasized that people can find their suitable selection and buy it right away.
Huawei P60 Art:
Compared to the standard and Pro models, the Huawei P60 Art has a unique look. The phone is designed by the Huawei Paris Institute of Aesthetics. Meanwhile, the rear camera shape is inspired by an island.
Therefore, the appearance is unmatching by the other two models. Meanwhile, the blue color options and the light reflection make it feel like an island floating on the sea.
Hence, the entire Huawei P60 Art brings a new user experience that falls under a separate customer category. He said that some consumers will like it, and others may not and this is totally fine with us.
Looking at the specifications, Huawei P60 Art equips a triple camera system of a 48MP main camera with variable aperture and XMAGE technologies. The ultra-wide angle is using a 40MP sensor to take accurate photographs. The phone has a large 5100mAh battery that you can recharge with an 88W super fast charger.

Huawei Mate X3:
This new foldable phone comes with many new technologies including ultra-light diamond aluminum and lightweight carbon fiber material. These contribute to the smartphone design and helps to achieve weight cut.
That’s why, the weight of the entire device is only 239 grams and it is lighter than the iPhone 14 Pro Max. This is a significant achievement in a foldable smartphone and none of the past companies could have achieved this without massive R&D.
Huawei Mate X3 components are also a key factor in its new design. For example, the new foldable phone has ultra-thin Type-C technology. Once folded, Huawei Mate X3 is only 11.08mm thick and only 5.3 mm thin in the unfolded position.
