Jim Xu: How Huawei Took a Bite Out of Apple

Not many top tech executives want to admit failures. But the President of Huawei Mobile, Jim Xu is made from something else. He spends his afternoon with AWANI Review’s Ibrahim Sani to speak frankly about what the company has done well and what the company needs to improve on as it overtakes Apple as the world’s second biggest smartphone maker.

Apple’s lagging iPhone sales, coupled with the newer launches of the Mate 10 series and the P20 series have resulted in Huawei capturing a larger slice of the market share from the hands of Apple.
