Huawei will in 2021 reduce its production of smartphones, and in quite notable proportions!
We know that 2020 has been a difficult year for Huawei. The Chinese manufacturer began to feel the repercussions of the ban on the use of Google Play Store services, while at the same time new restrictions fell on its processor supplies. And the consequences are being felt, since the tech giant had to get rid of its Honor division at the end of last year. And this year, the size of the manufacturer should be reduced again according to the latest information, which emanates from the large Japanese business daily Nikkei Asia.
Indeed, Huawei sent orders to its subcontractors to produce 70 to 80 million smartphones, a drop of 60% from the previous year and its 189 million phones – a year already down from 2019 -. And this is again an optimistic figure, Huawei facing this year encountering problems to acquire 5G chips, forcing the manufacturer to focus on 4G smartphones, a move which, according to Nikkei, could drop its production to 50 million. of units. What to imagine a very dark future for the brand if things do not change!
