Units Of Huawei Phones Are Rejected By Tech Shops In Asia For Trade-Ins
HUAWEI PHONES – After the recent controversies about the Android mobile brand, Huawei phones are being rejected by tech shops in Asia for trade-ins.
Allegations of Huawei phones being used as a spyware by China have circulated news providers and social media outlets. This affected the brand’s value and credibility.
Recently, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) advised the Philippine government about its partnership with Huawei.
The controversies probably reached tech shop owners and managers which triggered them to distrust the android phone brand.
Cellphone shops in Asia no longer accept mobile units from Huawei. This was since Google ceasing business with Huawei.
Google said they would follow the US President Donald Trump’s order to stop working with Huawei brands. Android users with Huawei phones will be prohibited from Google updates with the android OS starting the later days of August.
After hearing the news, Huawei owners from Philippines and Singapore attempted to sell their phones. This can be deduced from online markets’ activity log and retailers’ data.
Among all the Huawei owners trying to sell their phones, there were only a few retailers and tech shops that accepted the units.
Dylan On from Wanying Pte Ltd – Singaporean tech shsp – already foresaw future business outcomes in buying the phones. The salesman said:
“If we buy something that is useless, how are we going to sell it?”
He also attempted to sell their stocks of Huawei units via an online marketplace platform to foreigners expecting that they are unaware of the current US policy.
He also said that Huawei is of good quality but will soon be useful after theUS Policy will be implemented.
This is according to an article from GMA News.
Huawei company’s spokesperson revealed information about their move to respond to the US Policy in a statement:
“[We] will continue to provide security updates and after-sales services to all existing Huawei and Honor smartphone and tablet products.”
That is all there is to it, at least for now. We’ll post updates as soon as we got them.
