The reason behind all this is believed to be the U.S. ban, and how companies like Google said they won’t support Huawei moving forward. The Chinese giant reassured customers that it is safe to buy a Huawei smartphone, as the ones that are currently out will still be supported by both Google and Huawei.
The hole left in the market will likely be filled by vendors like Xiaomi and Vivo, while Samsung and Sony could benefit in the flagship segment.
