Huawei eyes bigger slice of high-end pie
Smartphone maker Huawei Technologies Co unveiled its latest smartphones in Paris on March 27, in a new push to grab market share from Apple Inc and Samsung Electronics Co in Europe. “Western Europe is of great strategic significance to Huawei, especially since the company has encountered bottlenecks in the United States. It is adjusting its strategies toward the high-end smartphone segment in Europe to gain a greater market share,” says Jia Mo, senior analyst at market research company Canalys. Huawei’s P20 premium version, the P20 Pro, comes with a triple Leica camera, which is regarded as the best camera among existing handsets, an upgrade in response to the recent unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S9 in Barcelona.
