Huawei grew its market share to 17% compared to 15.8% market share in the second quarter and 13.4% in the same quarter last year.

“While the ban on Huawei to access key U.S. technologies is yet to be fully implemented as a three-month extension was just announced, the proposed ban brought negativity around Huawei’s brand in the international market,” Gartner said in a statement. “Nevertheless, Huawei’s strong ecosystem in China continued to show growth. The current situation with the U.S. has also fostered patriotism among Huawei’s partners, which are now keener to promote its smartphones in China — a development that makes it difficult for local competitors to compete aggressively against Huawei.”

Well, the Firm is hopeful for last quarter shipment, and considering the holiday season sales, we can expect a rise in smartphone sales.
