Huawei asks suppliers to increase component shipments

By Anton D. Nagy March 6, 2019, 8:00 am

According to a recent Nikkei report, cited by Reuters, Huawei has asked its Japanese smartphone component suppliers to increase shipments. Aside from the fact that Huawei is on a constant growing trend in terms of smartphone shipments — shipping over 200 million in 2018 — it is believed that this move is meant to counter possible disruptions.

These disruptions may or may not happen, as a direct effect of the United States stepping up “pressure on Chinese technology companies over security concerns”, says the report. Murata Manufacturing and Toshiba Memory are specifically named as the suppliers Huawei addressed its requests to.


Murata reportedly received an order twice as large as it should have, while Toshiba was asked to supply memory components ahead of the scheduled delivery dates. There are no official comments on the matter for the time being.
