Huawei boss Richard Yu believes his company will outperform Samsung by 2020 to become the world's largest smartphone maker.

And it is the same desire that drives Huawei, the Chinese giant that oscillates between the third and second place among the largest manufacturers of smartphones in the world. The Chinese company, driven by its recent P30 Pro and P30, shows teeth and does not hide its desire to outperform the market leader, Samsung.
Richard Yu, the boss of Huawei, believes that his firm will take the place of Samsung in 2020, reads in the daily Bild, affiliated with Business Insider. This is not the first time the businessman has this speech. In 2015 already, he had this kind of talk. "We will surpass them [Samsung et Apple]. It's our destiny. Maybe I'm not humble … but nobody can stop us, "he said in 2017.

Beautiful year 2018
The CEO of Huawei also said that its main competitors will remain "Samsung and Apple because they can bring innovation."
