5G技术的加速落地推动着中国智能手机行业与AIoT行业的变革与发展。iiMedia Research (艾媒咨询）数据显示，2019年上半年国内手机市场总体出货量1.86亿部，同比下降5.1%， 4G手机出货量为1.78 亿部，同比下降 4.2%。与此同时，中国5G手机新机型加速上市，新一轮换机潮前奏已经开始，手机行业面临洗牌。AIoT领域，iiMedia Research (艾媒咨询）数据显示，2018年中国AIoT智能硬件市场规模达5000亿元，呈高速增长态势，预计2020年将突破10000亿元。2019年小米集团制定了“手机+AIoT”的双引擎战略，虽然小米在5G手机以及AIoT领域已经取得一定成绩，但面对巨头环伺的激烈竞争环境，小米未来的发展道路仍充满挑战，核心技术壁垒有待进一步提升。
The accelerated implementation of 5G technology promotes the reform and development of China's smart phone industry and AIoT industry. According to the data of iimedia research, in the first half of 2019, the total shipment volume of domestic mobile phone market was 186 million, down 5.1% year-on-year, and the 4G mobile phone shipment volume was 178 million, down 4.2% year-on-year. At the same time, Chinese mobile phone manufacturers are speeding up 5G mobile phones, and a new round of mobile phones has begun. The mobile phone industry is facing a reshuffle. In the field of AIoT, according to the data of iimedia research, in 2018, the scale of China's AIoT intelligent hardware market reached 500 billion yuan, showing a high-speed growth trend, and is expected to exceed 1 billion yuan in 2020. In 2019, Xiaomi group formulated the dual engine strategy of “mobile phone + AIoT “. Although Xiaomi has made some achievements in 5G mobile phone and AIoT, in the face of the fierce competition environment surrounded by giants, Xiaomi's future development path is still full of challenges, and the core technical barriers need to be further improved.
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. As the world's largest mobile phone market, China has contracted more sharply than the global market. In 2018, China shipped 390 million smartphones, down 11.7% from 2017, and the stock competition intensified. At the same time, emerging market countries, represented by Africa and India, are in the period of demographic dividend release. Mobile phone penetration rate is generally low, and mainly functional machines. Data show that smartphone penetration in Africa remained at 33% in 2018, compared with 28% in India. Incremental market and upgrading demand of stock market brought by demographic dividend in emerging countries show that the mobile phone market still has great development potential, which attracts the attention of mobile phone giants, who have increased their efforts to explore emerging markets. Overseas sales of Chinese brand smartphones increased to 40% in 2018. With the acceleration of the pace of ““going to sea““ of China's major brands, Transsion's dislocation market competition strategy is gradually ineffective. It will face a positive competition among several giant brands, and the competition will become more intense.
As the user bonus of Chinese smart phone market comes to an end and the market tends to be saturated, Chinese smart phone brands gradually shift the main battlefield of competition to overseas and embark on the strategy of “going to sea“ one after another. The huge potential of southeast Asia makes it the main starting point for all smart phone brands. According to data from iiMedia Research, xiaomi topped the list in India in market share in 2018. In Indonesia, xiaomi and vivo saw their market share increase significantly, while OPPO expanded strongly in Thailand. In the future, the competition among various smart phone brands in the southeast Asian market will be further intensified, and high-profile brands and sinking channels will become the main means of competition. In addition, smart phone brands will actively respond to 5G revolution while focusing on 4G investment.

obviously with a rapidly increasing saleroom. Jingdong Dingdong intelligent speakers ranked No.1 in the 2018 Chinese intelligent speakers iiMedia ranking, because of its excellent tone quality and updated technology. In the future, intelligent speakers will be much cheaper with standardized technology, building a better intelligent home, so that the popularizing rate of intelligent speakers will be higher and the market will be larger. The advantages of intelligent speakers industry may attract more entrepreneurs to join, but it means more competes and price wars in the industry.
As the data of iiMedia Research showed,the Chinese shipment of smart phone in the third season in 2018 declined obviously year-on-year.The top 5 smart phone brands—iPhone,Huawei,OPPO,vivo and Xiaomi dominate the most market share in China,with iPhone accounting for 28.9%and Huawei accounting for 17.1%.Huawei owns the best public praise from the Internet in the top 5 smart phone brands,while iPhone got the most discussing and the most powerful dissemination but the most negative comment form its new product release meeting in 2018.
