Huawei focuses developing brand ecosystem and is committed to creating an attractive space to seduce developers - "Along with 5G, the word of 2020 will be 'ecosystem'." So believe in Huawei Spain, commented Manuel Teba, Retail Field Manager Huawei CBG Spain, in a virtual meeting with journalists to discuss the strategy of the company after the launch of new products in the Huawei Developer Conference 2020, held last week.
The pandemic has rocked the market and redirected it to online sales, an impact that Huawei has also noticed, which says it has seen some of its markets contract while others have benefited.
"Computer sales have increased by 176% over the previous year," said Ramiro Larragán, Huawei's marketing director. That was thanks to the "strong commitment for this market to the social reality in which we are immersed", he assured.
In this context, Huawei continues to bet on " providing the best technological solution to our customers," said Larragán.
The marketing director has acknowledged that, although the smartphone remains the most prominent device in the catalog, Huawei's strategy is now more focused on developing "our own mobile service system" and building "our devices with the idea of integrating with each other."
Huawei "was operating in the smartphone market and in a project-based way," explains the director. However, he is now betting more on opening the focus and focusing on creating an ecosystem that is also attractive to developers.
In this line, bets are placed on the creation and development of AppGallery, its own app acquisition store; the launch of its own search engine; and the development of Huawei Music and Huawei Video, which ensures that they will gradually expand and add more content.
Huawei focuses developing brand ecosystem
Manuel Teba has insisted on the importance of the ecosystem, assuring that the company's strategy is no longer focused only on launching products, but on them"relating to each other in an intelligent way".
This has been accelerated by the coronavirus crisis, which has created scenarios in which consumers have detected needs that were not met only with the use of the mobile device, he assured, noting especially the arrival of telework and the need to quantify health.
All the products launched at the Huawei Developer Conference 2020 respond to these new needs, and Teba has highlighted the quality of the Matebook (the new will arrive in October for 1,400 euros) and the new smartwatch.
In addition, there are functionalities so that developers can continue to develop that ecosystem, he noted.
For his part, Jaime Gonzalo, vice president of Huawei Mobile Services in Europe, has warned that the strategy of Huawei seems to be setting in Spain, noting that orange phones that are most sold in our country are brand and 20% of them do not have Google services.
This has been made possible thanks to the effort to develop the HMS (Huawei Mobile Services), which "was created to ensure the user experience when Google Services ceased to be on Huawei's new phones," said the vice president, who has claimed Huawei's ability to face the US veto.
In fact, among the new announcements, the company has unveiled that its phones and devices will integrate its own operating system, HarmonyOS, from next year, in 2021.
