In China’s high-end smartphone market, Huawei far surpasses Apple’s “domination of the world.” According to market data, benefiting from Huawei Mate 30 and P30 and other models, Huawei has occupied more than 80% of China’s high-end smartphone market share. It is higher than 73% in the same period last year.
Counterpoint statistics also show that user demand for smartphones in the $600 to $800 range has risen significantly. It rises from 31% of high-end devices in the third quarter of last year to 43% this year. The main driving force is Apple’s iPhone XR. While demand for smartphones in the $400 to $600 range fell sharply from 42% in the same period last year to 24%.

In addition, demand for smartphones priced between $800 and $1,000 has also increased significantly by 60%. The main driving factor is Samsung’s Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 series phones.
The report also shows that the market price of smartphones in the third quarter increased by an average of 5%. It is inseparable from the current launch of 5G smartphones. Xiaomi founder Lei Jun also said earlier that Xiaomi will launch at least ten 5G smartphones next year.
At present, Apple has not released any 5G mobile phones. Anywhere there are already analytical data predicting that the iPhone 11 released by Apple this fall will drive the company’s global sales in the fourth quarter to achieve a breakthrough and even surpass Huawei.
Apple’s “coldness” in China is affected by the bulge of Huawei’s smartphone on the one hand, and also by the price. To this end, Apple has also made adjustments in price. For example, the price of the iPhone 11 has dropped by nearly 1,000 yuan(145$) compared to the beginning of the iPhone XR.
