Huawei believes that its smartphone shipment for the year will still improve despite the US ban. However, it acknowledges the effect of the US ban on its business. The company recently said that its smartphone shipments would have exceeded 300 million units if not for the US ban. The company is still trying hard to escape the claws of the US government.

According to Huawei officials, its latest series required a considerable amount of energy and research. About 3,000 people invested in the research and development of this series and the R&D cost exceed 2.1 billion yuan ($294 million).

      Based on what sources do you suggest “China lies about everything!”, exclamation point even like you really are sure of your facts. So could you give me a link so I can read up on your point of view, from a source you get info from? I’m unsure on how lying helps China or how exactly you are equating this companies sells and marketing to the operational tactics of China to lie always. That’s why a little source material would help me out. Thanks

    After the ban Huawei increases its profits not only in Smartphones but in 5G and IoT. They are obviously ready for the Trump’s stupid scenario and mostly European countries continue to use Chinese equipment except UK, but they will be part of Europe only one month more. I hope we get the choice to avoid Google, Facebook and similar spy softer. China? It doesn’t mean spy more then Google. But, Trump will lost thousands working place in USA and market in “little” China. She already lost battle in military industry with Russia in Turkey. China also prepare the arrangement with Turkey in billions – in one of the biggest and more important NATO country.
