  • Why Smartphone Sales Will Decline in 2019

    This might come as a shock to some: the mobile phone market is booming, after all. But almost every expert in mobile phone manufacturing and the smartphone market believes that fewer phones are going to be sold this year.

Read on for how Huawei is hoping to challenge the world’s biggest tech company – and why their two thousand pound phone might just be a groundbreaking shift in the market.
