Trade bans with Huawei that the Department of Justice of the United States has ordered the companies of its same land is significantly affecting the growth of the Chinese company. After having established itself as the second most influential company in the smartphone market, reports are now emerging that Huawei would sell Honor.
The information comes from Ming-Chi Kuo, a respected Chinese analyst who usually reports on the products Apple plans to launch or designs in the cloisters of its Chinese factories. But this time he has decided to get his feet wet in the affairs of Huawei and judging by the statements of his employees this has not gone down very well.
Huawei employees deny that Honor will change owners
Hours later after uploading a report stating that Huawei would have intentions to sell Honor, Huawei employees demonstrated on the social network Weibo ultimately getting the report that caused the controversy off the hook. Mainly accusing him of imprecise and uninformed.
The analyst’s report mentioned Huawei’s intention to obtain a transfer of the owner of Honor so that this company could buy components of North American origin and even then finally launch real flagships in the western market instead of just midrangers high-end.
If it is true that Huawei would sell Honor with intentions of circumventing the trade bans that have been bringing so much trouble to both companies then it makes sense for its employees to deny it at all costs. After all, who would want to make such intentions public?
But if it is true that Huawei does not have these plans then we will find out in the coming months. A transfer of command of companies is not something that goes unnoticed. Especially not in a paralyzed world that is more aware than before of news of such magnitude.
