Huawei takes one other blow as new Android-powered rivals storm forward

With the inability to trade with US firms, Huawei struggles to source all of the parts needed to build its popular devices.

Counterpoint also says 5G devices are booming in China, with 65 percent of all devices sold in the fourth quarter of 2020 featuring this technology. This also seems to be a headache for Huawei as Counterpoint says, “The inventory for key components is exhausted and it will not be able to source 5G smartphone components.”

With fewer parts, Huawei has focused on releasing premium devices, and this gives other companies an opportunity to step into the mid-range market.

Counterpoint’s research also speculates that due to insufficient supplies, distributors in China are also reducing their Huawei activities and switching to other brands.
