The White House imposed even stricter restrictions on Huawei in May this year. It is forcing chip makers to stop shipping products made using US technology and equipment to the Chinese company from September 15. From now on, it lacks the opportunity to produce its own proprietary Kirin chips. And, it can not buy processors from other manufacturers.
The Chinese are buying Huawei devices en masse despite rising prices
As part of what is happening in China, the prices of Huawei smartphones have risen. Prices for selected models have already increased by 40% compared to January of this year. For example, the cost of the already expensive Huawei Mate 30 RS Porsche Design increased by $ 443.7. On average, the cost of the company’s devices increased by $ 60-74. Wholesale device shipments are purchased in minutes. Electronics retailers need to hurry as prices for Huawei devices rise almost every hour.
The high demand for the company’s devices in China is dictated by the fact that many decided to have time to buy a smartphone before disappearing from sale. Consumers understand that Huawei will not have enough stock of processors for a long time. So in the future, they will not be able to buy gadgets from this manufacturer. Because their release will be stopped.
Analysts say the company’s stock of parts will be enough by the middle of next year. Of course, much will depend on the pace of production that Huawei will follow. Most likely, it will follow the path of reducing its own range of models and will also introduce restrictions on the number of gadgets produced.
I must say that Chinese users, driven by patriotic feelings, all the time after the imposition of sanctions in May 2019, actively support Huawei, actively buying its smartphones. It is based on the patriotism of the Chinese that the success of the company in the mobile phone market this year is based. And we have to pay tribute to them now that they have not left Huawei, but continue to actively buy its smartphones.
The Huawei Mate 40 may not reach global markets this year
As for Huawei’s problems and fate, users are divided into two main camps: some believe the company’s days in the smartphone market are numbered, others are convinced it will be able to tackle all the problems and show in the United States what can he do. In this case, it remains to be seen the evolution of the events, as well as those new products that the company will release, including the upcoming Huawei Mate40 series.
One of the main premieres of Huawei and the industry as a whole in the second half of this year will be the release of the flagships of the Mate 40 series. According to rumors, the announcement of the devices will take place no earlier than November this year. Huawei itself remains calm and urges its fans to wait a bit, promising that the premiere will take place as scheduled. But at the same time, it does not specify when it will happen.
Meanwhile, the reliable insider Evan Blass announced that the Huawei Mate40 series will not be released this year. We will have to wait until 2021. However, he did not specify whether he was talking about the world market or the Chinese market. The announcement of the new devices may be made in China this year. But they will enter the world market only next year.
Reputation has said that Huawei is taking the situation seriously. And, do not expect much demand for the Mate 40 flagships. That was the reason why it reduced the orders for accessories for these smartphones by 30-40%.
