Chinese smartphone companies like Huawei and Honor pack solid performance and cutting-edge technology into their handsets, but for a long time, they played minor roles in Western markets, especially in the United States. In fact, American consumers can’t even buy Huawei phones directly from their network carriers even though Huawei is the world’s third-largest phone company after Apple and Samsung. In a post on Tencent Tech News’ WeChat wemedia account, chief reporter Guo Xiaofeng summarizes developments pertaining to China’s major phone companies and reports industry data findings. Guo’s account is an interesting first dip into the complex mobile phone landscape – but feels too cursory and would benefit from deeper analysis. Nonetheless, getAbstract recommends this read to tech geeks and others interested in smartphones beyond Samsung and Apple.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why Chinese smartphone makers are expanding into overseas markets and
- Which Chinese brands are doing well in the global smartphone arena.
