After the trade ban, the US has tried every possible option to stop Huawei’s business in both network equipment and smartphone business and in turn of events, the US is now planning to implement more business block for the Chinese tech giant.
According to Reuters, the US government may expand its power to stop foreign shipments of products with US technology to Huawei, due to the frustration of failed attempt to cut off supplies to Huawei.
Back in May, the US commerce department placed Huawei in the Entity-List, which blocks its access to American technologies including semiconductors, software services provided by Google.
However, following the restrictions, Huawei found alternatives to most of the US technologies, making the US trade ban ineffective and shrunk its effect to the lowest.
Under the current regulations, key foreign supply chains remain beyond the reach of the US authorities, prompting inter-agency discussions about the possible changes to two key rules that could expand U.S. authority to block more foreign shipments to the company, giving more teeth to Huawei blacklisting.
This new restrictions plan is being considered after the Trump administration has agreed to give new reprieve on the business ban and to distribute special trade licenses for suppliers who want to sell products to Huawei.
The source also revealed, further expansion of trade ban will broaden the US regulations on non-sensitive items, such as standard cell phone chips made outside the country with the U.S. originated technologies, software, and components.
Currently, it’s not clear when the administration will make a call on this decision but the related sources revealed that it’s especially being considered to affect only Huawei.
“The actions would upset supply chains but that ultimately Huawei would find other companies to fill the gaps” Washington trade lawyer Doug Jacobson.
In conclusion, we can see this new decision as a post-failure effect of the Entity-List program, which almost didn’t harm the company.
Huawei Notebooks score 101% in China laptop market: Report
Huawei and its products are the top-most gadgets in the world. That’s just not a dramatic phrase but a fact. In the latest information, we found that the Huawei Notebooks are the ‘high-in-demand’ products in the China market.
Recently, Canalys shared a report regarding the value of laptops in domestic merchandise. To those who are unaware, Canalys is a market research organization that shows the reality and the positions of devices as well as their brands in the real world.
As usual, this time also, the organization published its report regarding the notebooks in the China region. Five tech giants are sharing this report: Lenevo, Dell, Huawei, ASUS, and HP. In terms of unit share, Lenevo is at the top with 37%.
Thereafter the list goes as – Dell with 11 percent, Huawei with 10%, AUSU, with 9 percent, and 7% unit share of HP. However, in terms of growth rate, Huawei notebooks are leading the China market with 101% in the second quarter of this year.
Undoubtedly, Huawei laptops and notebooks have gained a lot of users’ attention in recent days. Besides, the company has introduced several huge screen products in the second quarter of 2022. Hence, it’s obvious to find Huawei with a massive growth rate.
Although, at this moment, the company is lacking behind in the market share. It is standing in the third position, but we are sure that by the end of this year, the Chinese manufacturer will be able to once again grab the first position.
On the side hand, Huawei is also making efforts to stiff its legs in the global market. The company has some high-end technologies to showcase at the global level. Yet, many competitors are in the row and it’s difficult to make a profound place instantly.
But we should not forget that Huawei is capable of bringing such features that easily drag consumers into its court. After Mate 50 series, let’s see what new automation will stand the company at the top of the world.

Huawei improves AppGallery games section
On October 2022, Dr. Jaime Gonzalo, VP of Consumer Mobile Services Europe at Huawei, people from the global gaming industry were given insight into how they could achieve an improved return on their considerable investment in new and existing games to boost AppGallery for game distributions.
In the past few years, AppGallery is becoming a popular platform for games as it serves millions of monthly active users with new and existing gaming apps. Up until today, AppGallery now lists games from some leading titles such as PUBG Mobile, Mobile legends, Free Fire, State of Survival, and more. Hence, Huawei continues to work on the games section for AppGallery users to enrich its user engagement.
“Games developers are finding it increasingly difficult to reach new audiences. The major challenge is that customer acquisition cost has increased significantly over the years due to market saturation and inflated pricing. That’s why alternative app platforms such as AppGallery are emerging and playing their part to provide developers with improved revenue-generating opportunities,” said Jaime Gonzalo”.
Currently, 99.9% of apps downloaded via the leading app distribution platforms are losing users monthly, pushing the costs of retention higher and higher.
Gonzalo pointed out that AppGallery currently has 580 million global monthly active users, 45 million of which are in Europe. Outside China, AppGallery has increased in-app revenue by 3x year-on-year, casual game growth has increased by 20x over the same period, and monthly ad revenue for developers has doubled.
“We have a high spending audience,” Gonzalo told the Pocket Gamer audience. “In countries like Germany the ARPPU is $200, in the UK the average is $159 while in Poland it is $100, and this is coupled with very low developer effort. Existing Android games can be ready to onboard to AppGallery in just a few minutes. We also support every game with solutions, promotions, and developer kits, which accelerate distribution and boost revenue numbers.”
