After a handful of hours from Huawei’s pessimistic estimates of revenues for the coming months, here are further hints of a collapse that becomes more concrete day after day.
In a nutshell, it comes from Digitimes colleagues that Huawei is beginning to cut shipments of smartphones, not just low-end devices that don’t use proprietary chips. The top of the company’s range would also be part of the new political line, including smartphones such as Huawei P30 and P30 Pro, and there are also repercussions on the upcoming Mate 30 series.
All this is the result of a survey based on several leaked data, a survey by Luke Lin, an analyst at Digitimes Research who, although it has no concrete evidence at the moment, fits well with the recent trend of which we have spoken a few days ago.
Huawei estimates that international shipments will soon drop by a share that is between 40 and 60%, and even its recent release of the refund program in case of a possible disappearance of the Google and Facebook apps makes us understand the internal company difficulties.
The devices that are part of the program are Huawei P30 / P30 Pro / P30 Lite, Mate 20/20 Pro / 20 RS, P20 / P20 Lite / P20 Pro, Nova 3 / 3i, Nova 2 Lite, Y Max, Y9 Prime 2019 , Y9 2019, Y7 Pro 2019, Y6 Pro 2019, Y6 Pro 2019, Y6 2018, Y5 2019, Y5 Lite 2018, M5 Lite 10, M5 Lite 8, M3 Lite 8, T5 10 and T3 7.
