Forward-looking: According to research firm IHS Markit, shipments of 8K TVs will reach 430,000 this year and surpass more than two million by the end of 2020. Huawei’s (including Honor) smartphone shipment was 29.9 million, and it’s market share has increased.

China is one of the key growth markets for smartphone sales, and local companies have an advantage. Samsung is now eying profits from the Galaxy S10 5G, Galaxy A80 and Galaxy Fold in Q2 2019. Confirming Apple’s prediction, IDC says that its sales dropped 30.2 percent year-over-year in 2019. Apple has been touting its services businesses lately which helped it to report a solid overall result for the same quarter. This decline was primarily due to the longer upgrade cycles for iPhone users.

That’s because, while the iPhone XR accounted for 38 per cent of US iPhone sales, the iPhone XS was responsible for less than 10 per cent, according to CIRP’s figures. He touted it as an example of how Apple intends to continue make money from the iPhones, iPads and Mac computers it has already sold.

The transformation is an acknowledgement that parts of its hardware business are starting to mature, and that it’s getting tougher for even Apple to convince you to buy a new iPhone at a regular pace. The research firm noted that this is the sixth straight quarter that global smartphone shipments shrank.

China was once again one particular challenge for Apple, as Huawei account for 34% of all sales despite the declining market. Now, a report suggests that Huawei is working on the world’s first 5G-enabled TV.

Smartphone sales are down 6.6% from this time previous year, a new report from IDC has found, as vendors shipped a total of 310.8 million units in 1Q19 compared to 332.7 million in 1Q18. Strategic Analytics estimated Xiaomi’s and Oppo’s sales at 27.5 million units and 25.4 million units, respectively.

Contrary to Huawei’s achievements in 2019’s first quarter, Cupertino based Apple faced the most challenging quarter as shipments dropped to 36.4 million units, a monstrous fall of 30 percent compared to more than 52 million shipped in Q1 2018. The total sales volume hit 310.8 million units.

The situation began to change in 2018 as Apple and Samsung were unable to come up with more innovations for their smartphones.

Huawei's insane growth in China should have Samsung and Apple worried
