According to Huawei, the HMS ecosystem is now the third-largest in the world.
“HMS ecosystem is now the third-largest in the world, and the HMS core achieved a tremendous improvement. Together with the many Huawei teams, we made the impossible possible within a year,” says Zhang Ping’an President of Consumer Cloud Service, Huawei Consumer Business Group.
The sales in new Huawei phones with HMS pre-installed also played an essential role in the success of the company’s ecosystem after being sidelined from Google in May 2019 by the US government.
According to Canalys, Huawei became the number smartphone company in Q2 surpassing Samsung. The company shipped 105 million smartphones in the first half of 2020.
