Huawei will not sell its smartphone business, confirms founder
Ren Zhengfei, founder and CEO of Huawei on Tuesday expressed that Huawei will survive the sanctions imposed by Donald Trump and expects a restart in ties with the U.S. upon arrival of the new president, Joe Biden.
In May 2019, the U.S. commerce department added, Huawei into the Entity List, which prohibits the company from purchasing U.S. technologies as well as software services. In 2020, the Trump administration further restricted Huawei from purchasing semiconductor products and canceled licenses for existing suppliers.
Last month, Joe Biden took charge of the White House and Ren expects that the new U.S. president could bring an improvement in ties between the two parties as well as businesses.
Ren said, Huawei remained committed to purchasing from U.S. companies and it’s mutually beneficial to restore Huawei’s access to U.S. goods.
Furthermore, he suggests that the restrictions on the Chinese tech giant would hurt U.S. suppliers because of Huawei’s buying capacity.
“We hope the new US administration would have an open policy for the benefit of American firms and the economic development of the United States,” said Ren. “We still hope that we can buy large volumes of American materials, components, and equipment so that we can all benefit from China’s growth.”
Ren gave this statement during his visit to the Chinese city of Taiyuan at an opening of a lab for technologies for automating coal production to increase safety in this business.
Huawei will not sell smartphone business:
According to the recent smartphone market reports, Huawei has seen a big drop in its smartphone sales and market share. In the fourth quarter of 2020, data from IDC shows that the company has slipped to number five from the number two spot among the top 5 smartphone makers.
Aside from this, Huawei’s domestic market is still steady and it could help the company to survive for a long time.
Amid these changes, reports also emerged that says Huawei would sell its P and Mate series flagships. At that time, Huawei has denied such reports and Ren also said that Huawei will keep its smartphone business in the market. (Via AFP)
“We have decided we absolutely will not sell off our consumer devices, our smartphone business,” he said.
Related to this, Huawei is preparing to launch a new foldable phone, the Huawei Mate X2 on February 22, and then the company has planned to release a new P-series flagship, P50 somewhere in March. These phones symbolize Huawei’s capabilities in the software, hardware, and camera sections.

Leak shows Huawei Mate X3 with new and odd camera
Huawei Mate X3 launch is on the horizon and coming straight toward us. Meanwhile, a leak has just struck our launch lane and revealed Huawei Mate X3 with a new and a bit odd camera system.
According to an offline sale promo poster, Huawei Mate X3 comes with a round camera system with a big camera bump. The concept of the bump is clearly matching the bloodline of the Mate series.
However, the Huawei Mate X3 will get you a new version of what we’ve seen in the Mate 50 lineup. The image reveals a metal-plated camera system that is wrapped around a rectangular opening for the camera module. This is the first time when Huawei is using such hardware in a flagship device.
Moving on, the camera has four lenses that are arranged in a rectangular shape. Inside this, there are two columns and each has two cameras. These two columns are divided by a large LED flash from the middle.
In comparison, it looks more like the Huawei Mate 30 series but is edited and polished with those materials. Another key revelation is the depth of the phone, which seems pretty thin similar to a Mate 40 Pro.
Overall, the camera is taking a big part of the rear side. For now, the image is not that much of clear to measure other changes in the design but we could wait for them in the future.
Huawei Mate X3:
Earlier this week, Huawei announced that Mate X3 will launch alongside the P60 series on March 23. This upcoming foldable phone will carry forward with Mate X2’s inward folding mechanism.
However, there are various improvements coming in the portability and weight of this smartphone. For instance, Huawei has reduced the screen size to 7.85-inch for the main panel, which was 8-inch in the Mate X2.
This says a lot and we could light and better Huawei Mate X3 among us.
