Xiaomi took 50 million Huawei smartphone users: President
After the events of the U.S. ban, Huawei had to reduce its capacity of building new smartphones, which result in low yield and sales, and now, Xiaomi claims that it took over 50 million of Huawei’s users.
During the Xiaomi Investment Day, Lu Weibing, President of Xiaomi Group said that Huawei has lost over 80 million smartphone users, of which, Xiaomi took over 50 million.
This is quite a big statement made by the head of the Chinese phone maker as Huawei was forced to leave the market due to the restrictions on manufacturing.
After not meeting the market requirements the share of Huawei’s smartphone market declined severely in both the Chinese and global markets. While other smartphone makers are the ones that got most of the benefits.
From the rest, Apple took over 20 million users and Honor grabbed 10 million, which accounts for an overall 80 million Huawei users.
According to the data revealed by Canalys, the global smartphone market ranked Samsung first and Apple second, which has increased by 22 percent and 19 percent respectively. While Xiaomi declined to 13 percent.
Aside from Apple and Samsung, other smartphone maker has declined. On this matter, Xiaomi’s president said that the decline in his firm is related to various reasons such as currency depreciation, chips from shortage to surplus, and intensified competition, the global mobile phone market will decline by 12% in 2022, of which the Chinese market will decline by 13%.
It was an opportunity for all of the smartphone companies with an open opportunity to grab Huawei’s market share and it fell directly into their lap without doing anything.

Huawei is an advance player in technology such as ChatGPT: Chief
ChatGPT is a raging storm on the internet and everyone is talking about this AI-powered instant reply software but Huawei says, it has long mastered such technology.
A person in charge of Huawei’s computing product section said that Huawei began to have a layout in the large model in 2020. In the following year, Huawei launched Pengcheng Pangu, which is a super-large model and the first of its kind in the industry.
This model can generate 100 billion levels of processes and can generate responses or understand Chinese natural language processing as well as speech recognition.
To be mentioned, Pangu NLP large model was the world’s largest Chinese language pre-training model with 100 billion parameters at that time. The sample tuning of the data improves the application performance of the model in the scenario.
Recently, two patents have surfaced on China’s intellectual property office, which reveal Huawei’s use of AI in instant reply software. However, we can say that Huawei has already applied a lot of AI software to human conversation technology, which was way ahead of ChatGPT. But Huawei has not revealed any plans to implement such tech in Huawei devices.
ChatGPT was launched as a prototype on November 30, 2022, and quickly garnered attention for its detailed responses and articulate answers across many domains of knowledge. Its uneven factual accuracy, however, was identified as a significant drawback. Following the release of ChatGPT, OpenAI’s valuation was estimated at US$29 billion.
