Sources from retail stores in China confirm that the market is experiencing an explosive growth in demand for Huawei smartphones, which previously sold better than all competitors. The reason for this increase in demand was the new U.S. sanctions, which came into force on September 15. Now Huawei can not order components that use American technology and equipment.
Against the backdrop of what is happening in China, prices have increased not only for used models, as we reported earlier, but also for new Huawei smartphones. Prices for some models have already increased by 40% compared to January this year. For example, the price of already expensive Huawei Mate 30 RS Porsche Design has increased by 444 dollars. On average, prices for smartphones Huawei increased by 60-74 dollars. Wholesale batches of devices are sold out in minutes. Electronics stores are constantly adjusting prices, which increase almost hourly.
Many have decided to have time to buy smartphones before they become more expensive and disappear from stores. Everyone understands that Huawei has enough accumulated components for a limited period of time. In the near future, the company’s smartphones may be discontinued.
Analysts say that the company will have enough spare parts by the middle of next year. Naturally, much will depend on the pace of production, which Huawei will follow. It is suggested that Huawei will go the path of reducing the lineup of smartphones, as well as introduce restrictions on the number of gadgets produced.
It should be noted that Chinese users are driven not only by patriotic feelings and desire to support the domestic manufacturer. Some Chinese companies are fired people for using the iPhone and forced to buy Huawei phones.
