Huawei Insists Global Smartphone Production Levels Are As Expected
We have seen much ado about Huawei’s resilient road ahead as significant US partners and major parts suppliers are ready to turn their backs on the world’s second-largest smartphone vendor to the end of a 90-day reprieve issued immediately after President Trump’s announcement of a potentially business-ending ban.
But although it is pretty clear the political tensions are already in a negative way affecting the Chinese company’s sales and brand image in the Western Hemisphere, Huawei reps and executives keep to insist the situation is not as bad as certain reports make it out to be. Immediately after essentially suggesting the White House failed to do the tech giant any favors by giving it the aforementioned “stay of execution”, Huawei is adamantly denying a fresh rumor in regard to current smartphone production.
In a short statement issued to Cnet and quite a few of other international news outlets, the company exclusively and expressly refuted the claims made in a Chinese media report about a Foxconn manufacturing shutdown of Huawei mobile devices. Reportedly, “global production levels are normal, with no notable adjustments in either direction.”
At first glance, that may seem reassuring, but clearly, these are particularly volatile circumstances, with lots of moving parts and unpredictable future developments. Mainly because Huawei might be going about its business like nothing has happened or is about to happen, that doesn’t mean a production halt or at least a downgrade are not in the pipeline. If the embargo on collaborations with US companies stands, market researchers assume a tremendous slowdown of the Chinese tech giant’s incredible recent growth.
At the moment, it appears as though Huawei is working on the assumption the US-China trade war will somehow cool down in the next couple of months, allowing it to continue selling hundreds of millions of Android phones world wide.
