According to Reuters, Huawei smartphone sales in Western Europe are increasing despite Huawei’s inclusion on the BIS entity list. While Huawei expects a $30 billion loss in revenue due to this new ban, existing phones sold before the end of the 90-day reprieve will not be affected by a future ban. Huawei has guaranteed current users of phones and apps would be supported even though Google support for future Huawei phones would end in August.
As the second largest smartphone maker behind Samsung, Huawei has shipped 100 million smartphones as of May 30th this year.
Despite the large number of phones shipped, the ban against Huawei may result in the delay of future phones – such as their foldable 5G Mate X phone.
