There is still a glimmer of hope for Huawei’s dying smartphone business.according to TheElec, South Korea-based Samsung and LG are exempt from the U.S Government sanctions, allowing them to do business with Huawei freely. The Huawei P50 display is likely going to be sourced from one of these companies. Huawei has been struggling with the lack of GMS (Google Mobile Services) on its devices for quite some time now, and the Huawei P50 series isn’t exempt. It’ll be interesting to see if AppGallery has what it takes to act as a proper Google Play Store replacement.
Huawei has short supplies of the flagship, Kirin 9000 series and it wants to save for flagship smartphones. Furthermore, some other sources speculate that the company may get a processor from Qualcomm for the P50 devices but there’s no certain evidence since it has only obtained a license to sell 4G mobile chipsets to Huawei.
Despite the trade ban, HUAWEI was still able to do a good job with the sales of the Mate 40 series back in China. The devices were all sold out in just 28 seconds right after the pre-order event started. After that, the company faced a huge shortage in both online and offline markets. For that, we can’t wait for the arrival of the P50 series to see how well it’s going to perform for the sales again!
