Android 10 Operating System & Huawei:
Huawei is a Chinese Multinational Technology Company that makes electronics like smartphones, tablets, smart T.V.s, and many more. Its headquarter is in Shenzhen, China and founded in 1987.
In recent years, Huawei overtook Apple and became the second-largest smartphone manufacturer after Samsung. It exports its electrical products to about 170 countries and has almost 194,000 workers.
In 2019, Huawei’s seasonal income had boosted to 121.72 billion US$[mcd1]
Huawei Mobile’s Market Share worldwide:
Huawei is succeeding in all smartphone brands in the market. It had a 19% share [mcd2] of the smartphone market worldwide in the first months of 2019, and even Huawei shipped more phones than Apple in the first and second quarters of 2019.
In the last three years, Huawei’s global smartphone shipment increased each year. In 2017, Huawei exported over 153.2 million mobile phones globally, 205.2 million phones in 2018, and the shipment of mobile phones was 238.7 million in 2019.
On the other hand, 5G is the 21st century’s nervous system of the economy. Huawei managed about 40% of 5G smartphones, Mate 30 Pro[mcd3], in China in December 2019, and Huawei also made the other 5G smartphone brand.
Samsung, Huawei, L.G., and Nokia are at a race to 5G, plus Huawei is at the front. According to IPlytics[mcd4], Huawei offered 11,423 technical contributions for 5G in 2018.

Why US Ban of Huawei:
The trade war between the U.S. and China is not a wonder. They’ve been in the field for many years. The U.S. said that Huawei stole I.P. (intellectual property) and risked national security, but Huawei said that they’re not involved in any such activities. As a result, on 15th May 2019, Huawei got banned. Further Huawei is banned in Australia, Japan, Taiwan, New Zealand, and the U.S., But the U.K. halted only the 5G services of Huawei. Huawei said it would affect U.S. companies and American jobs more than Huawei itself.
Moreover, Huawei is a leader in 5G technology in the world, and the ban may be a cause of the US-China economic war.
Huawei, Apple, and Samsung Comparison in Markret share:
The three smartphone brands, Samsung, Huawei, and Apple, secure 50% of the world’s smartphone market. If we see the 2019 global smartphone market share[mcd5] of the three top brands, Samsung remained at the top while Apple and Huawei were the rivals. In the first quarter (first three months) of 2019, Huawei had 17% and Apple 12% of the global smartphone market share. In the second and third quarter of 2019, Huawei remained over Apple. But in late 2019, when Apple launched the iPhone 11, they received an excellent customer response due to its innovative-camera and lower price of the iPhone 11. So, Apple jumped to 18% of the global smartphone market share while Huawei dropped to 14%. Even Apple stood shoulder to shoulder with Samsung as they both had the same global smartphone market share in late 2019. Therefore, Apple’s global smartphone shipment reached up to 72.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. But, today, Huawei still has more clients.

Future of Huawei without Android:
After the refusal, Huawei said it would affect U.S. companies more, and the same happened. Many U.S. companies were working with and relying on Huawei, and they came under economic pressure with the ban. Therefore, U.S. President, Trump lifted the partial restriction after 5 months, and the U.S. companies got a license to work with Huawei. In that case, Huawei Mate 30 Pro has Android 10 without Google apps, but Huawei is not resting there. Huawei has its AppGallery, which has about 45,000 apps. Likewise, Huawei said that they will not take the Android System back yet if the ban is lifted entirely, and they will make its operating system. So, now, the future of Huawei is in answer to one question out of two. Will Trump completely lift the ban? Or Will Huawei be able to make its Operating System?
