According to information released by the Chinese media Caixin, Huawei’s Consumer Business Executive Director Yu Chengdong, said The new Mate40 phones debuting this fall will be the latest smartphones with the company’s most advanced processor.
The manager pointed out that this is a “great loss” considering that thanks to these chipsets, produced by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC) with American equipment, these mobiles will have more 5G processing capabilities and artificial intelligence more powerful, Caixin reported.
The American President, Donald Trump, has maintained a fierce opposition against Huawei considering that The company maintains a close relationship with Chinese intelligence services and therefore represents a security risk for consumers.
The United States has responded with blocks to the expansion of the mobile phone company as part of the global race to implement 5G, a technology in which the Chinese company has taken a solid position.
In July, the United Kingdom banned telecommunications operators buy new equipment for its 5G networks from Huawei and ordered the retirement of all old devices before 2027.
Given this, the vocero from Huawei in the UK, Edward Brewster said the news “is bad and disappointing”, especially for UK development.
According to International Data Corporation (IDC) Huawei became the world’s leading phone maker in the second quarter of the year with 55.8 million units sold despite a small decline of 5.1% year-on-year.
“This was driven by Huawei’s tremendous growth in China, nearly 10% year-on-year, which offset the large drops the company faced in all other regions. Going forward, the impact of the US tech ban will continue to create uncertainty for Huawei in foreign markets. “, IDC noted.
Huawei advances despite blockades
The Chinese technology company reported revenues of US $ 64,875 million in the first half of 2020, which represents an annual increase of 13.1% compared to 2019.
