Sanctions are one of the favorite tools of pressure from the United States to stop the unwanted. Last year, Huawei and all of its subsidiaries came under sanctions. But they had no effect; and already in 2020 America launched another attack, which should lead to the destruction of Huawei. At least, this is what US officials hope for.
But Huawei continues to struggle and sees its salvation in the domestic market. China has become not only a reliable and stable sales market; but there you can also create your own supply chain; so as not to depend on suppliers outside the Middle Kingdom and again not become hostage to political showdowns.
Huawei wants to build a supply chain inside China
Huawei is even ready to spend a fair amount of money to support promising Chinese startups that may become partners of the company in the future. So, in April last year, a subsidiary of Habo Investments was created, which is responsible for investments in other startups. During the year, it concluded 17 transactions, under the terms of which Huawei financed the development and formation of other companies.

The investments brought their first results. Thus, thanks to the financial support of the Chinese company Vertilite, specializing in the creation of sensors, it was possible to release components that will now find their application in Huawei smartphones.
When choosing areas for investment, priority is given to those firms that will be able to supply components for Huawei products in the future. However, you shouldn’t think that the Chinese company is buying up Chinese startups. No, investments are metered, and it prefers to acquire no more than 10% of the shares of compatriot companies. In addition, Huawei itself is busy mastering a number of technologies; and intends to independently put the release of a number of components on stream.
Huawei prepares to launch Nova 8 and 8 Pro with 90 and 120 Hz screens
Chinese tech giant is working on a new generation of smartphones in the popular Nova line. We first learned about this a couple of weeks ago, when a rumor appeared on the Web about the manufacturer’s intention to install OLED panels with a refresh rate of 120 Hz in its future mid-range smartphones.
Leak finder @rudhranandu shared new information about the upcoming Huawei Nova line. According to him, the Huawei Nova 8 Pro will receive the same 120-Hz panel, a 5G Dimensity 1000+ chipset and a price tag of 3999 yuan ($585), and the younger Huawei Nova 8 will be equipped with a more modest 90-Hz screen and a Dimensity 820 chip. Naturally, the price tag will be lower – 3299 yuan ($485). The presentation may take place in December this year.
