Market share of mobile vendors in Malaysia 2020

Huawei led the mobile vendor market in Malaysia with a 21.15 percent share of the market. The reason for Huawei’s success is not only its strong performance but also Samsung’s declining market share in the past few years. The Android market has become more open and the trust in well established brands has shrunk. In addition, lesser-known smartphone brands like Oppo have conquered the market with low-priced smartphones to meet the demand of people with smaller incomes.

Launch of fifth-generation technologies

In 2019, Maxis, Malaysia’s second-largest mobile network operator, announced that it has signed an agreement with Huawei Technologies to launch a fifth-generation (5G) telecommunications network when the technology becomes available. This year, Telekom Malaysia in collaboration with Huawei Technologies introduced TM ONE Cloud, which offer cloud, artificial intelligence (AI), cybersecurity, cloud operations and cloud AI infrastructure services.

Huawei’s initiatives during the COVID-19 pandemic

Apart from collaboration with telecommunication providers, Huawei has recently collaborated with the Malaysian government. In an effort to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, Huawei Malaysia has donated four technology solutions to the Ministry of Health. The solutions will enable healthcare experts to work with frontline medical professionals to conduct online consultations and enhance the effectiveness of diagnosis and treatment. In this period, buyers of Huawei’s MateX were also offered free delivery services, an added incentive to purchasing Huawei.
