After the announcement of Harmony OS, the software on Huawei phones is the least concerned right now, the big problem is Hardware. Huawei is facing hardware problems due to US ban.
Huawei can’t even make a flagship phone anymore because USA completely destroyed Huawei’s ability to make a proper high-end flagship phone.
First they took away google services and despite that Huawei still continued to ship phones with their open Android version but then they took away their ability to make flagship processors.
Now believe it or not they are even taking away their ability to have flagship displays after September 15th. Any company who uses US-based technology, won’t be allowed to work with Huawei.
This means Samsung and LG won’t be allowed to do business with Huawei as they won’t be allowed to sell their OLED displays, not even RAM and memory and some other hardware things.
Without a flagship processor and latest OLED display, they cannot survive in the flagship game, which means not only Huawei Mate 40 is the last phone to have a kirin flagship processor, it could also be the last flagship from Huawei ever.
Recently Qualcomm tried to get a license to ship its Snapdragon chips to Huawei but so far US has no reply for that. Samsung display has appealed to US as well, but they have also not received any reply.
US has single-handedly destroyed Huawei which is why we’re hearing in the news that Huawei might actually exit the smartphone industry. One thing China can do is force chinese manufacturers like Oppo, Vivo, Xiaomi and even Oneplus to use Harmony OS 2.0.
If China does something like that, it’s going to be a massive blow to USA for sure but then Again US can still destroy any chinese smartphone brand like they did with Huawei.
If they can take control of processors, display, memory and all these other things, it’s still a big scary issue for all the chinese brands. Again I don’t think china will do something like that because they’re making a lot of money.
If you look at the global smartphone sales, Xiaomi is actually in the list. In my opinion, china won’t go that far but Huawei on the other hand seems like it’s completely been sacrificed in this whole political war between US and China.
As always, I would love to hear your thoughts in the comment section below.
