Huawei has also clearly emerged as the leading smartphone brand in the emerging markets like India, where Anshul Gupta from Gartner shared in a statement:

"In [an emerging] market growing at 4 to 5 percent, Huawei saw 38 percent growth,"

A major reason for this was the feature introductions that were specially targeted for such markets in addition to the vigor of its well-established Honor brand. He shared that Huawei had a higher playground in emerging economies where a customer appreciates the feature upgrades that he experiences from a $200 smartphone to $300 smartphone.
