Counterpoint Research says U.S. sanctions against Huawei, which bans the supply of US equipment, software, and design-made to a Chinese company without Washington’s permission, could move up the global smartphone market and provide better opportunities for other brands.

Kang Min-Soo, an analyst at Counterpoint Research, said, “For Samsung, it will be a good opportunity to raise its smartphone market share, especially in Europe, where the company has been competing fiercely with Huawei in various price bands.
