The CEO of Huawei, Richard Yu, believes that if the United States had not sanctioned the company, they would now be at the top of the list of the top phone sellers in the world, along with Apple. "A small company like Samsung" had nothing to say.
Now that there is no mention of Huawei in the smartphone market, the CEO of this company saw the opportunity to remember the not-so-distant past; When the Chinese company had a great performance in making smartphones and even at one point it was able to beat Samsung at the top of the list of the best smartphone manufacturers. But the heavy and back-breaking sanctions of the American government caused Huawei to be sanctioned not only in terms of software but also in terms of hardware, so that it could practically no longer produce smartphones.
We do not deny that Huawei was on a good path and could pose a great threat. It is for Apple and Samsung, but the CEO of this company now, citing words like "we could" and "we could", claimed that if it were not for the US sanctions, this company and Apple would now be at the top of the list of top smartphone manufacturers. A strange claim that brought with it many positive and negative opinions.
We don't know what made the CEO of Huawei, a company that has been able to remain at the top of the list of the best smartphone manufacturers in the world for more than a decade. Let's call it "a small Korean company", but believe it or not, this is the same words of Richard Yu, the CEO of Huawei, who by the way, the US sanctions against this company were mostly due to his history of being in the Chinese Communist government.Huawei was a big company, we should not deny that Richard Yu's words were not true at all. Huawei tried for 7 years to surpass Samsung in the production and sales of smartphones, but in the end, it only took one quarter to achieve this success. Unfortunately, the American government immediately saw such a high potential from the Chinese company and decided to ban other companies from selling chips to Huawei in addition to the software embargo that was applied a year before this incident, so that Huawei would have a bad free fall. experience.
Huawei was able to have 2% more sales than Samsung in April, but in In the second quarter of 2020, their share in the market was equalized and finally, Samsung was able to regain its position thanks to the release of phones such as the S20 Fan Edition
At that time, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S20 series phones. It was that equipping them with the terrible Exynos 990 chip made them not have much demand in the world market and were the sole cause of Samsung handing over the top of the table to Huawei. In April 2020, Huawei was able to overtake Samsung with a 17% share and take the first place by taking 19% of the global market share. The CEO of Huawei had promised his users to beat Samsung in 2018, but various reasons caused this to happen a little later and in 2020. But this superiority only lasted for one season and at the same time as Samsung returned to the top of the table, the destruction of Huawei officially began. Definitely, with the potential that we have seen from this company, we know that it will make big things happen in the smartphone industry. Still, this industry should be grateful for the attractive technologies that Huawei introduced to the world for the first time. But with all these interpretations, Richard Yu's words cannot be considered reasonable considering Samsung's performance in the market.
It should be noted that Huawei still produces smartphones, but these phones do not have 5G processors. And they do not use the official version of the Android operating system. Huawei tried to improve the situation, but it didn't help, and now it is not even among the top five companies in the market in terms of smartphone sales.
However, do you agree with what Richard Yu said? are you Do you think if it were not for the sanctions, would Huawei have a very difficult path to overtake Samsung?
