As planned by the United States, Huawei should cease to exist in the very near future. Through sanctions, the White House blocked its access to both hardware and software solutions. The consequences can be most devastating for Huawei if it suddenly decides to give up and stop fighting for its survival.
Despite the fact that the mood of the company is not the most positive, there is no talk of surrender. Among the ways out of the situation is called a reorientation to the domestic market. Both in terms of sales of its products and the purchase of components. Knowing the patriotism of the Chinese, one would expect a number of Chinese partner companies to lend a shoulder to Huawei.
But the reality may not be rosy at all, and Huawei cannot rely on other Chinese manufacturers. According to Digitimes, chip manufacturers in China have also suspended the supply of products to Huawei since yesterday. All joint projects that would allow the production of components for the needs of Huawei were also frozen.
It is assumed that the partner companies’ fear of falling out of favor with the United States pushed this step. The consequences of disobedience can be the most negative. And Chinese manufacturers do not want to risk their position in the market. If this information is reliable and Huawei is facing a “betrayal of allies”, then it will be extremely difficult for them to survive in this situation.
Huawei Mate 40 may not arrive at global markets this year
Regarding the problems and the fate of Huawei, users are divided into two main camps: some believe that the company’s days in the smartphone market are numbered, others are confident that it will be able to cope with all the problems and will show the United States what it can do. In this situation, it remains for us to observe the development of events, as well as those new products that the company will release, including the upcoming Huawei Mate40 series.
One of the main premieres of Huawei and the industry as a whole in the second half of this year will be the release of the flagships of the Mate 40 series. Rumor has it that the announcement of the devices will take place no earlier than November this year. Huawei itself remains calm and urges its fans to wait a bit, promising that the premiere will take place as scheduled. But at the same time, it does not specify when it will happen.
Meanwhile, the reputable insider Evan Blass has announced that the Huawei Mate40 series will not be released this year. We’ll have to wait until 2021. However, he did not specify whether he was talking about the global market or the Chinese market. Maybe, the announcement of the new devices will take place in China this year. But they will enter the global market only next year.
Rumor has it that Huawei is soberly assessing the situation. And, it does not expect a large demand for the flagships Mate 40. This was the reason that it has reduced orders for components for these smartphones by 30-40%.
