Samsung's 2019 Lineup Looks Impressive, But Can It Fend Off Huawei?Samsung remains by a long shot the largest smartphone vendor in the world with a little over 20% piece of the pie. While Samsung and Apple have been struggling to sell more phones, the fleeting rise of Chinese vendor Huawei in the smartphone world has shocked many. Huawei ousted Apple as the world's second-largest smartphone vendor last year and has now set its eyes on Samsung. The Korean organization's 2019 lineup of smartphones looks impressive, yet will that be sufficient to fight off the Chinese juggernaut?
Samsung has a lot riding on its 2019 lineup
Huawei figured out how to sell in excess of 200 million smartphones in 2018 despite the immaterial presence in the US and numerous other Western markets. It is increasingly closing the hole with Samsung, despite the fact that Samsung is insanely mainstream in the US – the world's second-largest smartphone advertise – where Huawei has been decreased to an unimportant punching sack.
The Chinese organization is improving faster than at any other time. It's apparent from the way that DxOMark ranks Huawei P20 Pro's camera far over the iPhone XS Max, Google Pixel 2, Galaxy Note 9, and all different smartphones. Its Mate series, Honor series, and Nova series of devices have increased immense prominence in developing markets. Huawei sold just 3 million phones in 2010 and has developed to in excess of 200 million devices in 2018.
According to Strategy Analytics, Samsung's smartphone shipments amid the July-September quarter declined by 13%. Yet, Huawei witnessed a 32% sales development in the same time frame. Of course, Samsung still figured out how to sell 72 million smartphones contrasted with Huawei's 51 million in the July-September period, yet the scenario may appear to be unique if Huawei continues to develop quickly while others suffer the slump.
It will interest see whether Samsung's 2019 lineup could help resuscitate its sales. Last year, it propelled the Galaxy A9 with four back cameras to strengthen its presence in the mid-go segment. The Korean organization has sent out invites for a February 20 Galaxy Unpacked occasion where it is relied upon to reveal three distinct variants of Galaxy S10. The organization has coincidentally released the Galaxy S10 design in a blog entry about its new OneUI interface.
The leaks so far suggest there will be three diverse variant of Galaxy S10 – one of them will be a spending model for cost-conscious customers and the other two will be immediate successors to the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus. The S10 is said to sport ultra-slim bezels, an Infinity-O display, fast charging, the latest Snapdragon 855 processor, an ultrasonic unique mark sensor, Artistic Live Focus, and Bright Night camera modes. Samsung has to uncover something surprisingly new to draw in consumers who presently have more options to choose from than any time in recent memory.
Another energizing telephone in Samsung's 2019 lineup will be the foldable gadget named Galaxy F or Galaxy X. It is said to have a futuristic design and interface that could change the manner in which we use our phones, opening up new possibilities for multitasking. You could unfurl it to use it as a tablet for playing games, watching videos, and running various apps side by side. The foldable handset, expected to make a big appearance in the first 50% of 2019, would be more expensive than Galaxy S10 because of high assembling costs.
Samsung will also be propelling its first 5G phones in the coming months. It will dispatch four 5G devices in the US this year – one each with Sprint and Verizon and two with AT&T. The transition from 4G to 5G is required to be faster than from 3G to 4G. Samsung hopes to pick up from the transition by being one of the first vendors to dispatch 5G devices in the US. The first 5G phones are said to be more expensive than their 4G counterparts. According to the rumor mill, Samsung is arranging a 5G variant of the Galaxy S10.
In the second 50% of the year would come the Galaxy Note 10, which is rumored to jettison the 3.5mm earphone jack and highlight 5G support. The Note 10 would have a considerably greater display than the Galaxy S10 Plus. The Note line has generally acquired design elements from the Galaxy S series however comes with the S Pen stylus and some other novel features.
Huawei confronting hurdles, however, will continue battling
Huawei won't sit inert as the year progressed. It showed off the Honor View 20 at the Consumer Electronics Show prior this month with a stunning 48MP back camera, which uses a period of-flight sensor to catch a 3D profundity outline. Huawei has also affirmed that it is dealing with foldable smartphones to go up against Samsung's Galaxy X. Its foldable telephone would be 5G good to exploit the blasting fast speeds. According to the rumor mill, it is also dealing with the P30, the successor to last year's generally welcomed P20 display.
The Chinese organization might not have a presence in the US, but rather it is focusing on different markets such as India to continue developing. Its explosive development combined with Samsung's falling smartphone sales makes 2019 an interesting year for the smartphone industry. Huawei's innovations also give it a high ground. With the P20 and P20 Pro, it demonstrated that its AI cameras are far superior to that of Apple and Samsung's. Its own version of Apple's Animoji is vastly improved than Samsung's AR Emoji.
Samsung has a lot riding on its 2019 lineup of devices. The US-China exchange war, the arrest of Huawei CFO in Canada, the boycott of Huawei products in the US because of spying concerns, and different issues have made the voyage a little increasingly troublesome for the Chinese organization. Be that as it may, it has pledged to continue battling until the point when it has supplanted Samsung as the world's No.1 smartphone vendor.
