In the future, only by standing from the demand side, reflecting the advantages of 5G in communication transmission in smartphones, and developing killer application that can only rely on 5G smartphones, can we accelerate its popularization.
On May 21, 2019, Huawei announced that its independently-developed operating system ““Huawei Hongmeng““ would be available in the fall of 2019 at the earliest, which immediately attracted wide attention from the public. in the context of the shrinking global smartphone market, Huawei's market share jumped to the second place in the global smartphone market in the first quarter of 2019. The development of the operating system may be directly related to the trade war between China and the United States. US sanctions on a number of Chinese technology companies have accelerated the pace of their technological self-reliance. As for Huawei's self-developed Hongmeng operating system, nearly 90% of Chinese enterprises believe that self-developed operating system is necessary, and more than 90% of Internet users and enterprises support Huawei to develop its own operating system. Analysts in iiMedia believe that the key to the development of self-research system is to solve the problem of ecological construction. Against the background of trade war, it is necessary to strengthen the research and development of core technologies. Launching a new operating system at a time when 5G technology is maturing is also a good development opportunity for Huawei.
According to iiMedia Research, global mobile phone shipments in 2018 were 1.891 billion, down 4.4% from a year earlier, of which smartphone shipments were 1.405 billion, down 4.2% from a year earlier.

In 2018, China shipped 390 million smartphones, down 11.7% from 2017, and the stock competition intensified.

In addition, smart phone brands will actively respond to 5G revolution while focusing on 4G investment.
