Huawei Denies Reports of Shutting Down Smartphone Production

Multiple reports have emerged over Huawei’s recent clash with the U.S. government as well as Google. One of these reports mentioned that Huawei may have ceased production on multiple smartphones. The Chinese manufacturer has now come out and categorically denied these claims.

Huawei refutes these claims, our global production levels are normal, with no notable adjustments in either direction,” a Huawei official said. It is important to note that Huawei has been relatively quiet on the reports up until now. But it seems like the company is trying to dispel fears among investors about the future of the company.

Currently, the U.S. is trying to rally its allies to take action against Huawei. This could corner the Chinese manufacturer, especially with Google also severing its ties with the company. As we mentioned in a separate report, this could significantly hinder Huawei’s chances of rolling out timely Android updates in the future. Huawei was definitely close to dominating the smartphone market before the ban came into effect, getting ever so close to Samsung’s figures.

The company’s fate in the long run is still unknown, although it still continues to sell its products across Asia and some parts of Europe. It will be interesting to see what steps the company can take to make its recent troubles disappear or at least make them manageable. As it stands, though, you probably won’t be able to buy a Huawei smartphone in the U.S. anytime soon.
