Huawei’s face is not smiling. Following the US sanctions, the company was also hit by the global chip crisis and had to stop producing low-priced smartphones.
Reports continue to come from China that a small number of Huawei smartphones remain in stores, but the company has stopped producing low-cost models due to a lack of components .
US sanctions for Huawei made it impossible to purchase the necessary components for smartphone models . The situation has been exacerbated by the global chip shortage that has forced the company to forego smartphones in the cheap to mid-range price ranges .
Uses the chip stock on flagships
Chinese store employees have confirmed that Huawei now sells significantly fewer smartphones than a few months ago . The only problem is not just not being able to find Huawei smartphones in stores . Even if you find the model you are interested in, it seems unlikely that you will be lucky with the color and amount of memory required .
The source adds that by visiting five Huawei stores , it found only four Huawei smartphone models in total . Another striking part of the business is that prices are increasing and mostly only old models are out of stock . According to media reports, Huawei ‘s current chip stock is only used in high-end flagship models.
