The head of Huawei: we will overtake Apple in the smartphone market in the next 2 years

The head of Huawei Richard Yu is confident that his company will overtake Apple in the market and become the world’s second largest manufacturer of smartphones in two years. This statement was made at the presentation of Huawei Mate 9 in Munich.

Now the majority of smartphone manufacturers are forced to fight for a place under the sun to win at least third place in the smartphone market. But Huawei Napoleonic plans: the manufacturer intends to outstrip the iPhone and the smartphones of the Galaxy series and become the number one company in the mobile market.

Having started as a manufacturer of telecommunications equipment, China’s Huawei entered the market of consumer gadgets recently, but now ranks third in the world after Apple and Samsung.

According to Strategy Analytics, in the third quarter, Huawei released 33.6 million smartphones and holds a 9% market share. Samsung remains the leader with a score of 75.3 per million shipped units and a market share of 20.1%. In second place is still the Apple from 45.5 million units (12% of the world market).

“When we announced four years ago that want to produce smartphones, we were told that we were crazy. When we said that we want to sell 100 million smartphones, people also said we were crazy,” said Richard Yu.

“We’re going to pass them [Apple] step by step, innovation for innovation. It’s like driving a car. At every turn there is an opportunity to get ahead of competitors”, — said the head of Huawei Consumer Business Group. Richard Yu noted that in the Finnish market, the company has moved into first place.
