Smartphone sales to decline amidst Huawei-US trade war

Huawei's Mate 20 Pro smartphone

Huawei's Hongmeng will be 60 times Faster than Android

Which will release in 2020.

Most Huawei phones run on Google's Android operating system, and Google said it would no longer be able to provide software as a result of the U.S. ban. "Security and app updates will also continue to be pushed out to Huawei smartphones to at least 19 August 2019".

Earlier, it was reported that Huawei's new generation of Kirin chips will be named Kirin 985 and it will be manufactured using TSMC's second-generation 7nm EUV lithography process.

"We can not change the situation right now because we are businessmen", Liu said.

If the U.S. persisted with its moves, Liu said, it would "force us to use Plan B", referring to heavy investments in new technology, including developing its own chips.

But, this is clear that Android will put up a great trouble to come ahead of this Hongmeng.

This has resulted in demand for Huawei devices "dropping off a cliff", according to Ben Stanton, a UK-based analyst at Canalys. The commerce ministry has promised more details "soon".

Huawei's Android replacement is not, apparently, ready to be launched.

A Chinese cable manufacturer, Hengtong Optic-Electric Co Ltd, is set to acquire a 51 per cent stake in Huawei Marine Systems Co Ltd, according to reports from the Reuters financial newswire.

Like most manufacturers, Huawei relies on Google's Android to power its Huawei phones.

This operating system was reportedly code-named Hong Meng, but recent filings with the German Patent and Trademark Office indicate that the upcoming OS might be officially named "Ark OS". I think they overestimate Huawei.

Consumers can't be guaranteed that Huawei phones, which run on Android, will have access to key apps and security patches after August 19, when a 90-day grace period under the United States export order ends. Sadly though, applications such as Mail, YouTube and Google Maps will only be explored through a web browser when that happens.

"Huawei is a tool of the Chinese state and has close ties with the intelligence services", said Jim Lewis, a cybersecurity expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

So many questions are asked now-a-days. We will not know what the situation is like exactly until market research companies share their data.

Huawei will sell its majority share in a submarine cable unit, the stake's buyer announced today, amid a US-led drive to isolate the Chinese telecom giant from global information networks over spying fears.
