The first half of 2020 will see a decline of 10.6% YoY, with the market predicted to only make up ground in the second half with accelerated 5G efforts. China is struggling to recover from its demand shock that was created by the outbreak. IDC is calculating a multi-quarter growth for the industry in China as Chinese workers gradually return to factories amidst persisting transportation challenges. The Chinese Governments efforts to provide stimuli and subsidies will help improve the situation during the later quarters of the year, but only actual smartphone shipments will tell us how well the market is recovering. Another problem for major smartphone manufacturers is that February and March is the time for some flagship models, which has already been affected by the outbreak. Along with this, a lot of final pre-production tests and product debugging has also been delayed, creating potential problems for the handsets that are slated for release in the second half of the year.

According to a report, about one-third of global smartphones sold in 2019 had some level of embedded hardware security chips in them, with Apple continuing to be in the lead. Evident from their marketing, the company that leads the market share of secure devices is Apple with a nearly 42% share in 2019. Since the iPhone 5s, Apple has been embedding a Secure Enclave (eSE) in their phones, ensuring data stays protected during a malware attack. They have lost some of this share, coming down from 60% in 2018, but that understandable as more devices show up with security chips in them. Huawei saw its market share of phones with embedded hardware security chips from 21% in 2018 to 34% in 2019. They use integrated secure element (inSE) on its SoCs, which include their HiSilicon Kirin 960, 970, 980, 990 and 710. Other major manufacturers like Xiaomi, OnePlus, OPPO, Samsung and Google use Qualcomm's Secure Processing Unit (SPU) in their devices.

With this drop, it is the third consecutive quarter of year-over-year decline for the global smartphone market.   For the first time, Huawei moved to second place surpassing Apple and this is also the first time since Q2 2010 where Apple has not been the number one or two smartphone company in terms of market share. Huawei has shipped a total of 54.2 million units with a record high market share of 15.8%. Samsung maintained its lead in the first place with 71.5 million shipments. However, its Q2 2018 earnings suggest that its mobile division revenues will face challenges moving forward. Apple has been pushed to third place as the company was only able to ship 41.3 million units, with a market share of 12.1% compared to 11.8% from the same time last year.

If reports from Washington are to be believed, the company is experimenting with prototype phones featuring between five and nine camera lenses on the back. According to Light, the multi-lens array on its current working on prototype can shoot up to 64-megapixel shots, promising a better low-light performance and depth effects. Either way, this shift towards cell phone photography looks fitting for Light. We have already started seeing phones with four cameras (likes of Huawei P20 Pro, HTC U12 Plus) and there are rumors about the upcoming LG flagship; V40 which is said to pack five lenses into front and rear cameras. We believe Light is capable of stuffing more cameras into a phone, after all, it has done once by including 16 cameras into one. The report says that Light will be announcing a phone with its camera technology later this year, so the wait is not so long.
