Following the recent Huawei events, it was reported that Huawei had halted smartphone production at Foxconn’s plants. The reports had made it unclear if this was temporary or long term coming after the reduced orders for its new smartphones following the US ban. Well, the Chinese tech giant has come out to deny these claims.
According to GSMARENA, an official Huawei spokesperson said these claims are unfounded and that production levels are normal with no adjustments. Analysts had projected that Huawei might see a significant drop in sales but this is yet to be seen. Croma, a leading retail giant in India reported that Huawei users aren’t worried about upcoming updates and that sales are still strong despite the uncertainty.
Huawei is closely evaluating the situation after the US government mid last month put the tech company and its affiliates on a trade blacklist that restricts them from buying parts and services from US-based companies without approval.
According to Honor President Zhao Ming, Huawei will have to reassess its goal of overtaking Samsung in terms of being the world’s biggest smartphone manufacturer as these plans might get delayed.
