Will Huawei sell its mobile branch, sell only a few brands, or wait to see the turn of the file under the Biden administration? The company is now denying new rumors about the P and Mate ranges.
It has become an Arlesian. With its blacklisting and the inability to get new mobiles certified by Google, it is rumored that Huawei could be forced to sell its premium smartphone brands P and Mate. A rumor that reappears regularly, but which has not yet materialized.
The Reuters news agency, which quotes two sources familiar with the matter, explains today that preliminary discussions have been taking place for several months between Huawei and a consortium led by investment companies backed by the Shanghai government. The possibility of a sale would have been explored by Huawei as early as last September, according to one of the sources.
For its part, Huawei fully denies: “Huawei has learned of the unfounded rumors currently circulating about the possible sale of its high-end smartphone brands, tells us the brand by e-mail. These rumors have no legitimacy. Huawei is not planning anything like that. We remain fully engaged in our smartphone business and will continue to deliver the best possible products and experiences around the world. “
The Shanghai government has also denied this information. But the subject may not be closed for all that. Recall that Huawei sold its Honor brand in November 2020 to the Shenzhen Zhixin New Information Technology consortium. The sale was justified by the trade war waged by the Trump administration. The coming to power of Joe Biden could possibly move the lines.
