Apple is extremely likely to retake the title of the world's second-largest smartphone maker by both shipments and sales after losing that spot to Huawei in 2018, according to a new report authored by Strategy Analytics and Fubon Research.

Yesterday, US' President Donald Trump left open the possibility of lifting the ban if the country successfully negotiates a new trade deal with China.

Companies that have either shunned Huawei completely or restricted buying from the company include Google, Softbank's ARM, Analog Devices, US chipmakers Intel Corp, Qualcomm Inc, Xilinx Inc, Broadcom Inc, Japanese electronics maker Panasonic Corp and BT Group's EE.

This comes as Google cut off Huawei devices from its Android OS following a US order banning the sale of American software and components to the company.

"Huawei may be wiped out of the Western European smartphone market next year if it loses access to Google", said Linda Sui, director of wireless smartphone strategies at Strategy Analytics. And China says that it won't come to the negotiating table until Huawei is off the list.

Trump, Pelosi feud makes it impossible to legislate: Newt Gingrich

Huawei shipped around 208 million smartphones in 2018, accounting for almost a third of the global smartphone market, according to several industry trackers.

But experts are not buying the company's claim.

Huawei would potentially need to lay off thousands of people and "disappear as a global player for some time", said Stewart Randall, who tracks the chip industry at Shanghai-based consultancy Intralink.

The Huawei-manufactured Nexus 6P has also been removed from the site, though it was never part of the Recommended program - only the "Enterprise Solutions Directory" that contains thousands more devices. Now, because of this, a product comparison website called PriceSpy has reportedly informed significantly lower click rates in the past four days searching for Huawei smartphones.

"Over the last four days, Huawei handsets have slumped in popularity - receiving nearly half as many clicks as they did last week in the United Kingdom and 26 per cent less on the global stage", Katsapa said. Huawei has said it signed 5G contracts with 40 clients around the world.
