Huawei’s crisis is deeper: it will reduce shipments by 60% | Digital Trends Spanish
That Huawei faces complex moments is not a mystery. The Chinese company itself has acknowledged that the restrictions imposed by the United States forced it to adjust its production line of smartphones.
In fact, in 2020 it had to get rid of its economic brand, Honor, and it was also marginalized from the list of the five largest cell phone manufacturers in the world.
However, the depth of Huawei’s crisis appears to be even greater and everything points to 2021 being one of the company’s worst years when it comes to shipping new phones.
The Japanese agency Nikkei Asia It said Huawei had notified its suppliers that it would need enough components to make 70 to 80 million phones in 201.
The figure represents a decline of more than 60 percent compared to the 189 million cell phones it produced in 2020.
According to the report, some manufacturers even expect the Chinese company to only order components for 50 million phones.
At the end of February 2021, Huawei is preparing to launch a new generation of folding phones, the Mate X2.
However, expectations do not appear to be very promising, since it lacks Google services, has experienced a constant decline in phone sales, as well as being prevented from having technology made in the United States.
At the beginning of February 2021, the CEO of Huawei, Ren Zhengfei, urged the president of the United States, Joe Biden, to modify the policy of his predecessor, Donald Trump, who initiated the actions against the Chinese company for considering it a danger to the National security.
