According to a research report by Canalys, Huawei now overtakes Apple to become the world’s second largest smartphone company after Samsung. Huawei was ranked at number 3 in top 10 largest mobile companies of 2018, but in 2019 Huawei will be the second largest company if it keeps going like this, despite the Huawei ban propaganda by the US government and some parts of Europe, however, UK had security concerns over Huawei devices and they had talks with UK regulators about the issues, most recently in this month Huawei announced that it will meet the UK 5G security demands according to the regulator’s guidelines in order to stay in the market.
According to CNBC the US government officials advised citizens not to purchase Huawei products because of the concerns over Chinese government espionage. AT&T and Verizon reportedly pulled out of the deals to sell Huawei phones in January 2018.
Despite strangling tactics by the US government and some parts of Europe the Chinese manufacturer managed to breathe in other parts of the world which proved to be enough oxygen to build its muscles. China on the other hand is mulling to put a ban on iPhone sales in China which could cost Apple roughly $11.5 billion in revenue loss according to Forbes.
