Huawei: ¿No hay señales del nuevo Android 11 - P30 y compañía ahora para la papelera?

Huawei is still popular in Germany, but the numbers are misleading

Huawei: No sign of the new Android 11 - P30 and company now for the trash?

Huawei continues to sell its Android smartphones in Germany at a high level, but the latest market research figures are also a bit misleading. Until now, Huawei has been able to sell all smartphones up to the Mate 30 series with Google apps as usual and update them to newer software. After a brief period of uncertainty when Huawei was blacklisted and cooperation with American companies was restricted, sales in Germany quickly recovered.

According to GfK, Huawei is still in a stable third place among smartphone manufacturers. While it had a 17 percent market share in September 2018, September this year was even slightly stronger at 18 percent. In August 2019, Huawei even reached 20 percent. Basically, everything seems to be going well, but the crucial phase is yet to come for Huawei. In addition, growth stalled.

Huawei is struggling with the ticking of the clock

Until now, Huawei has been able to sell and offer its smartphones as usual. That is exactly what has changed in the meantime. The Mate 30 series is still at risk, a market launch has not yet been set, and Google apps have not yet been allowed for these devices. If this remains unchanged, the same fate will blossom for the P40 series next spring, and of course for all other new devices in all price ranges.

Currently, Huawei is announcing its promise for the future very strongly, but that can only be offered on “older” devices. Furthermore, Huawei cannot constantly “revive” old devices with new colors, as the Chinese last tested it with the P30 in September 2019. Meanwhile, the Android maker’s biggest enemy, while the competition drags new devices to the market without any problem.

The closer we get to the spring of smartphones, the colder the times will be for Huawei.
