After a dire 2020, many companies look to the future with some optimism. Vaccination, control of the pandemic and the desire of citizens to go out and consume and spend make companies envision 2021 better than 2020.
However, there are companies where this will not be the case. Huawei’s situation has not improved with the entry into the US government of the Joe Biden administration, at least for now.
This implies, as we have been able to know, a drastic reduction in the manufacture of mobile phones.
Huawei CEO denies sale of mobile division, talks about Biden, US and iPhone 12
Ren Zhengfei, CEO of Huawei, recently participated in a press conference where he addressed the hottest topics for the company.
Huawei will manufacture 60% fewer mobile phones
As reported by Nikkei Asia, Huawei would have indicated to its suppliers that this year orders would be reduced since its forecasts are those of sell between 70 and 80 million mobile phones this year, far from the nearly 190 million from previous years.
This confirms the intention of the Chinese company not to sell its mobile division and not to leave the sector, beyond having separated Honor to be able to continue operating in international markets.
It is possible that this drastic drop in sales forecasts is focused on European and Asian markets where the presence of the Google Play Store is almost an obligation to be able to sell.
More than 4G and less than 5G
Due to the import limitations of 5G items, Huawei would focus more during this time on selling 4G models and not 5G, which is the exact opposite of what most brands are doing.
We’ll have to wait and see if there are any moves that allow Huawei to collaborate again with companies like Google or if, it seems, we are facing a similar paradigm shift in the mobile phone industry. to the one we saw with the transformation of Nokia. and Blackberry years ago.
