The reports of reducing the supply chain by more than 60 percent come from Nikkei Asia. It says multiple suppliers have stated that the brand aims to order supplies for components of about 70 to 80 million smartphones in 2021.
Earlier, Huawei company was a tough competitor to Samsung as it was running fast to become the largest smartphone maker. But, in 2019, the US government applied a ban on the company, affecting the US business.
However, in September 2020, the company became hit when TSMC was forced to stop their business with the Chinese firm. As without TSMC chip, the brand had cut its Kirin-chipset division.
