It was not long ago that Huawei surpassed Apple as the second largest seller of smartphones globally and it seems that it is willing to do whatever it takes not to drop that place. And, is that, according to IDC, Canalys and IHS Markit , at the end of the second quarter of 2018, the Chinese company sold 54 million smartphones , enough to surpass the Cupertino technology company that placed 41 million devices on the market and to get closer to Australia Mobile Database Samsung, which sold 71 million. This has somehow set off the alerts in the two large technology companies, despite the fact that the South Korean continues to be the one with the highest sales and Apple stands out for being the one that obtains the highest profitability due to production cost and final price to the consumer.
This is due to the fact that Huawei has come to shake the South Korean brand as well as the American one, because it is growing in sales, especially in high-end smartphones such as the P20, P20 Pro, the same expectations that it has in the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro. Does trolling Apple work? Before the iPhone X was introduced, both Samsung and Huawei launched marketing actions to make fun of Apple’s smartphone but it seems that it worked more for the Chinese. According to analysts and, after the results of the behavior of the smartphone market, it is pointed out that the South Korean sells millions of phones , but has not placed as many Galaxy S9, S9 + and Note 9 as expected, otherwise the Chinese firm that one of its main products sold were the P20 and P20 Pro , in this case launched after the iPhone X.
After the launch of the iPhone Xs, Xs Max and Xr, the Chinese technology did not hesitate to react and, through social networks, launched several publications in which it referred to Apple as an expensive brand without much evolution, while it proposed the P20 Pro as true innovation. This appeal was again taken up when the Italian authorities determined to impose fines on Samsung and Apple for “deliberately limiting the useful life of Brother Cell Phone List their phones”, that is, making them slower, something that Huawei to presume that its smartphone was born and will remain fast. And now, after the launch of the new iPad (McBook Air and Mac mini) it did it again. Apple boasted in its keynote that they have sold more iPads than any other notebook on the market and in their graphs they appear on the latest Samsung, Huawei and Microsoft sites.
This served to highlight the innovations that come for the new tablets, one that stood out the most is that it added a USB-C port, which makes it possible to charge iPhones, among other functions – similar to how it is done with a Mac-. However, Huawei took advantage of that to troll Apple on what is reverse charging innovation . Through his official Huawei Mobile UK Twitter account, he published a message addressed to Apps. “I hate to bother the apple cart, but reverse charging is so much better when there are no chains attached, right?” says his copy in clear reference to how the new iPad can charge an iPhone. All accompanied by a video showing how two Mate 20 Pro wirelessly share charge.
