Huawei, which became the world‘s leading supplier of smartphones in the second quarter of this year, forbypassing Samsung, it is now struggling to keep up your smartphone business after the sanctions by the United States.
Last year, the Donald Trump administration included Huawei in the so-called “Blacklist”, effectively banning business with the company. At the time, the sanction did not have much effect on Huawei, but now the Chinese manufacturer is under pressure to impose more and more sanctions.
Many consumer electronics products from Huawei are already exhausted in several places, the popular models are missing, according to a report on the subject of Gizchina. As a result, the prices of used Huawei smartphones are rising.
The models in popular colors from the Huawei P, Mate and Nova series are already exhausted. Consumers who want such products can place an order, pay the amount due and receive the device one day later.
The US government recently imposed new sanctions on Huawei, banning the company from doing business with any chipset maker that uses US technology. This closed the doors of Huawei for the production of high-end Kirin chipsets and deliveries from other companies such as Qualcomm, MediaTek and Samsung.
The new sanctions have already taken effect, and Huawei does not currently have a plan B. It is rumored that the company may focus on cars, mobile accessories and LED screen technology, at the expense of high-end smartphones. It can also shift its focus to other devices such as tablets and laptops.
Huawei has stored some basic components, but they are expected to be completed in a few months. The company has very limited time to find a way forward for its smartphone business.
At the same time, Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei’s consumer business, confirmed that the upcoming flagship smartphone Mate 40 will be released on time, but some analysts doubt that the company will adhere to the schedule.
