The restrictions imposed by the US government on Huawei, although they may indicate a major financial problem, are apparently not affecting the Chinese giant's plans for the rest of the world. According to the Taiwan Times newspaper, the company would be preparing to produce approximately 50 million 5G-compatible smartphones by next year.
US agency considers Chinese a "threat to national security"
As the report points out, Huawei has already become the world's second largest smartphone maker, second only to Samsung. Although the deal involving the 5G mobile phone is treated as new, the Chinese company thinks ahead. According to the Taiwan Times, it is estimated that the total smartphone offering will increase by more than 20% by 2020, with Huawei certainly taking up a good chunk of this cake.
As we have already reported in Connected World, the number of mobile devices sold by leading manufacturers continues to decline steadily around the globe. One of the only exceptions apparently is Huawei, which has seen an improvement in its numbers – a fact that ends up giving the Chinese company confidence to invest.
According to the Leak portal, Foxconn's production and assembly station has been asked by Huawei to build more than 50 million 5G smartphones to be launched next year. This is a very high number considering the fact that technology is still in its infancy, as it has not yet become popular, nor has it reached the masses due to several factors (the lack of infrastructure among the main ones).
It is also worth mentioning that the battle with the US should become one of the obstacles faced by the Japanese giant. Right here in Brazil, it is known that the US government has been pushing to prevent Huawei from entering the local 5G market.
