In the past year, Huawei's smartphone business has maintained steady growth, with shipments exceeding 240 million units. In this regard, Zheng Square told reporters that although Huawei's Honor performance throughout 2019 is good, it seems to be a matter of course, because it is related to Huawei's external positioning of marathon runners. As we all know, long-distance runners have more advantages as they get behind. In 2020, Huawei will also enter a new stage of development. Whether the growth rate will be faster is worth the industry's expectations.
