“But we see that the mobile Internet industry, which centers on mobile phones, is under pressure. Global smartphone shipments have declined since 2018 and will drop by about 6% year-on-year in 2020. At the same time, consumers use mobile phones for basically 4 to 5 hours per day. This has been the statistics for smartphone usage since 2018. These indicate that the industry has reached a critical moment when it must be transformed”.
