‘Huawei may release 5G smartphones soon’

‘Huawei may release 5G smartphones soon’

Huawei may release 5G smartphones again before the end of this year. At least that is the conclusion of an investigation.

Huawei is said to have found a way around the U.S. trade blockade in terms of chips. That’s what three independent analysts tell Reuters.

It is said, the company can produce chips for its smartphones in its home country. It can use its own tools to produce semiconductors, which the company invested in after access to U.S. chips was thwarted. Furthermore, Huawei could rely on Chinese chipmaker SMIC. The news is not officially confirmed or denied by either party.

By the end of the year, the company’s flagship model, the P60, should get a version with 5G connectivity. Next year, the company will then come out with completely new products.

Small victory

However, American pressure is keeping the manufacturer out of Europe. Moreover, the company can no longer access Google’s Android system due to trade restrictions. Therefore, Huawei is unlikely to win over a large audience outside of China for its smartphones.

Moreover, the manufacturer will only be able to release a limited run of the smartphone because Huawei’s chip production is in its infancy and is not optimal. An estimated 10 million 5G chips could be produced.

This is not the first time there has been speculation that Huawei wants to bypass trade restrictions. In 2021, rumours did mention a possible return to the European and U.S. markets. In any case, it seems more realistic that Huawei is fighting against the trade restrictions in more minor actions.
