According to TheElec, due to a sharp decline in sales, Chinese technology giant Huawei plans to release only about 50 million smartphones in 2021. Sources from the Huawei mill reported that the company has shared this goal for 2021 with its South Korean subcontractors.
To better understand the scale of the tragedy, in 2019 the company shipped 240 million smartphones. In 2020, shipments of Huawei and Honor smartphones worldwide are expected to reach 190 million units.
It turns out that next year the company plans to ship only about 20% and 25% of the smartphone shipments in 2019 and 2020, respectively. If you remember the forecast of Strategy Analytics, the supply of Huawei next year could reach 59 million smartphones.
Reduced plans for supplies of Huawei due to tightening of U.S. sanctions, which limit its ability to obtain the necessary components and ensure stable production. After September 2020, the company is actually prohibited to buy American components for smartphones, laptops and other equipment.
As previously reported, in this situation, the company Samsung will increase the supply of smartphones to 300 million units in 2021. And this year the supply of Samsung is expected at 260 million smartphones.
According to information published by the authoritative edition of DigiTimes, the company Huawei may be destroyed by the company’s employees themselves, who are leaving it en masse.
