the so ambitious as emerging manufacturer of the mobile phone Huawei If you have not yet noticed a Problem. The United States put him on a black list and access to the Android Software and all Google services are denied. Since then, the group by the hand of the US authorities is.
Every few months for an exception from running and transition permit, and each Time, the group must hope for an extension. Their own operating system and App Ecosystem are in work (see Box). However, the Situation is a process, arduous and unpredictable. But the misfortune of one is the happiness of the other.
Breathe a sigh of relief in Seoul
on the one Hand, is likely to breathe a sigh of relief Samsung noticeably. The world market leader of Huawei arg afflicted. Now he gets thanks to Trump, at least, a breather. But also smaller manufacturers sense a Chance.
in the Short term, you can steal a Huawei maybe a few customers. But Huawei's mobile phone business (at least in the Western world because in Asia, Google plays break not play as significant a role), could you – Jackpot! – in the lucrative gap jump.
we Look at three possible profiteers, and each one of their phones in more detail.
There is a HMD Global. The company with the dying, boring name, has a decisive trump card in the Sleeve: it has the Nokia brand rights. You can end mobile phones with the plug-beam, and after the Windows fiasco of the missing brand name on your smartphone and feature phones (Retro-mobile phones with small screens and lots of buttons) to sell. HMD has its headquarters in Espoo, Finland, as the right Nokia also.
At the company many former Nokia employees have come under. Be manufactured the mobile phones, however, as usual, and unavoidable, in Asia. Nevertheless, the European HMD is likely to get a Global different than the competitors from the far East, hardly to be targeted by the US government.
unlike almost all the competitors HMD relies not on its own user interface. On the Nokia Smartphones are the unmodified Android runs . This allows the company that Updates at a record pace to deliver. While you're waiting for other manufacturers, months or even years, the case of HMD fix. The company has made in the last few years, a name with inexpensive Smartphones with the brand name.
The current Star in the HMD product range is the new Nokia 7.2 for approximately 280 Swiss francs. Who is looking for a mobile phone in the price category, can do nothing wrong. Yes, you would be able to HMD not to blame, you would have 100 francs required for this phone.
the camera, screen, battery and Design are more than good enough. The device is made of plastic instead of glass, aluminum or steel, is noticeable in everyday life is hardly affected. Yes, the phone should benefit in the case of tests even. A charming Detail is the LED light in the Power button. If you look into the assortment of the online retailer, there are always waiting times. A clear indication of the popularity of this model.
Two companies, a group -
The other two possible beneficiaries of the Huawei-Trump-bans that we want to take a closer look at, come from China and are called Oppo, and Oneplus. Both belong to the large group, BBK Electronics, and both are pushing into the European market.
Oneplus has developed in recent years, with high-tech to middle-class prices in the Android camp, a loyal fan base. A technology-oriented audience appreciates the Hardware, the competition is always with one or the other Feature of the advance, and the Software that comes without the Bombast and Ballast, therefore.
The latest Oneplus phone the 7T (650 Swiss francs). It offers, apart from wireless Charging, everything you would expect from mobile phones in the highest price class. The Design is elegant, the screen thanks to the high refresh rate, extremely pleasing to the eye, and also the power you need to make any concessions.
Especially the so-nimble as elegant operation by means of Gestures like. This is reminiscent in terms of comfort, rather to the operation of the latest iPhones than the somewhat cumbersome variant of the current Version of Android. Speaking of the iPhone: Similar to the Apple phone, the 7T has a slider. Unlike the iPhone, however, has three stages. One for silent, one for Vibrate and one for a ringtone.
The third in the League finally Oppo is. The company in Germany he is known at most as a manufacturer of DVD players, but this spring gave the company their Comeback with the first 5G phone in the Swisscom range. The Oppo Reno (the phone) is surprised in addition to 5G with Top and especially a camera that didn't have to hide at that time in front of the former camera-Primus Huawei.
unlike the 5G phone, the Oppo Reno 2 is 490 francs, considerably more affordable. Also here you have to look carefully to find differences to twice as expensive mobile phones. The glass enclosure is elegant, and the camera leaves nothing to be desired. Similar to Huawei Oppos camera, the Newest of the New in terms of Hardware.
The eye-catcher is the front, filling the screen without any cut-outs or holes for the Selfie camera. Possible an ingenious mechanism that extends the Selfie camera automatically when it is needed makes this. The cell phone falls down, it is moved in the camera automatically. Waterproof however, it is not, and how durable or prone to error is the mechanism that will show the next months and years.
The otherwise good first impression of the schluddrige vibration motor, clouded only. Each press of the button, the phone vibrates too late and highly inaccurate. Luckily, you can turn off the.
in Total, show the three Android phones, the current market share-kings should not rest on their laurels. The price war in the Android camp will be in the next few years, only even more brutal. And should the USA and China but still, it comes perhaps in addition to a mobile phone-glut. Namely, when Huawei is back in business and high-spirited competitors in the hope of a Huawei-vacuum have to be prepared for a lot of devices.
on the Other hand, the pendulum can also in the opposite direction. Namely, when other Chinese manufacturers, and perhaps even the manufacturer would also put on a black list. Then the Chaos would be perfect.
