After a number of companies cancelled contract with Huawei, reports suggested that the company has stopped its smartphones production. Although the company denied such claims, a new report by Nikkei Asian Review has claimed that the smartphone manufacturer has cut down its smartphone shipment prediction by a third for this year.
While the report claimed that the figure comes from an unknown source, Huawei responded to the claims by saying its smartphone productions and forecasts for shipments in the upcoming year remain the same.
Although the company has publicly denied the claims, it’s more than likely that the company will need to reconsider its strategies going forward. Few days earlier, the company completed a deal with a Taiwanese chip manufacturer TSMC in case Qualcomm cancels the business relations. However, the report claims that the TSMC has cancelled Huawei’s orders since then.
This latest news comes as earlier yesterday Facebook announced that Huawei smartphones are no longer allowed to contain Facebook owned apps out of the box. On the other hand, Google is currently trying to revert the ban as the search engine giant claims the US ban on Huawei can have significant consequences on national security going forward.
