Is this mean Huawei is going to kill it's mobile division ?
The US did every possible injustice to Huawei just to stop a Chinese oem from becoming no 1,since the American supergiant is incapable of innovating anything, and now get to hear such a sad rumour. Hope this never comes true.
I don't think it's right to choke a company like this just because it's Chinese. 😐
Lyndino, 25 Jan 2021Careful, I hear the Ministry of State Security already at your door.That is why American apps refuses to follow the Chinese regulations because they want the Intel on their people and monitor them constantly.
Aan2007, 25 Jan 2021google services are not really issue, even if they keep selling devices just in Chinese market... moreExactly, you just can't buy Huawei phones now in China as they are all out of stock due to lack of components. The demand is there but they simply don't have the phones to sell. Every single 5g model is out of stock
Duderino, 25 Jan 2021Yeah right. This 'consortium' who also bought Honor. Huawei is tainted as a brand an... moregoogle services are not really issue, even if they keep selling devices just in Chinese market they will still be one of the biggest brands in world
components are the problem, can't produce phone without them
I wonder what brand name they will use in case this becomes real.. The resurrection of Ascend series, maybe? Also, how are they planning to acquire all the R&D and human resources needed to develop new products and imaging technologies? A part of me wishes this will turn out to be true, other parts of me kinda not.
How sure are we that the group that bought honor isn't just a puppet company? Thay could do that as well for huawei phone business
Duderino, 25 Jan 2021Yeah right. This 'consortium' who also bought Honor. Huawei is tainted as a brand an... moreIt's not about the brand image, they are facing components shortage because the entire company including its subsidiaries are put into US entity list and other companies are prohibited from supplying components to Huawei. Cutting their successful divisions off while they still have a solid brand image isn't a bad idea per se, Sony did the same with VAIO and they are doing fine in Japan.
[deleted post]Agreed. People here just want cheap phones without caring that Huawei enables an extremely oppressive Chinese regime.
Go to China and type in “Xi” and “Pooh bear” in the same sentence.
How exactly will selling their premier smartphone product-lines to a State-backed consortium fix anything? If anything, it only cements the suspiciouns that Huawei is in kahoots with the CCP, them having to sell them to the consortium in the first place just shows that even other Chinese companies see their business as tainted.
YUKI93, 25 Jan 2021I wonder what will happen to the existing Leica partnership if Huawei really do this for real.Most likely they would keep it because that's the biggest selling point of their flagships. It simply doesn't make sense for them to resolve the partnership.

Whichever deGoogled custom ROM in mind, there should be the ability to unlock the bootloaders in Huawei smartphones.
