Component orders for Huawei smartphones could drop by up to 60% by 2021

Last month, Canalys released information on the Chinese smartphone market for the fourth quarter (4th quarter) of 2020. This analysis shows that Huawei is at the top of the rankings with 18.8 million devices sold. We remind you that the US government’s anti-Huawei policy and the company’s inclusion on the list of companies prohibited from using US technology prevents US technology manufacturers from supplying Huawei components.

According to the latest data, orders for components for the Huawei Smartphonea will decrease by up to 60% in 2021. Huawei has not yet commented on this topic.

Huawei said yes, it plans to order components for 70-80 million smartphones this year. Orders were limited to 4G models as there is no US permit to import components for 5G models. Some suppliers speculate that the number could even be reduced to almost 50 million units. Huawei expects US President Joe Biden to reduce the former president’s tough measures on trade and business with China. Apparently the new administration will not change Trump’s policies. On the other hand, Huawei founder and CEO Ren Zhengfei stressed the importance of open trade policies and stated that they are ready to share their 5G technology, which contains the secrets of the source code and hardware design to enable global innovation .
