In the past, Huawei had maintained a strong position in the global smartphone market, stably ranking among the top three in market share, thanks to the differentiation advantage of its self-developed Kirin SoC chip. However, since May 2019, Huawei has been heavily impacted by the US sanctions and has been unable to access high-end 5G chips. As a result, Huawei's market share in the smartphone industry has experienced a significant decline.  The market initially believed that the US sanctions would severely impact Huawei and its smartphone supply chain, potentially pushing Huawei into a dire situation. However, Huawei has made a comeback by launching the new Mate 60 Pro, which supports 5G technology. This comeback is a testament to the Nietzsche saying, "What doesn't kill me makes me stronger."
