We told you earlier today that despite being unable to access its U.S. supply chain since May, Huawei still managed to blow away the competition in its home country. For the second quarter of this year, the manufacturer shipped 37.3 million handsets domestically, an impressive-no-matter-how-you-slice-it annual gain of 31%. The next name on the list, Oppo, delivered less than half of the number of phones that Huawei did during the quarter.


Now, to be fair, the quarter was roughly half over when the Trump administration, citing security, placed Huawei on the Entity List. And the company did hoard some parts and components anticipating a ban. The real problems will start to crop up in the second half of the year when new models won't be able to come pre-loaded with the Google Play services version of Android. The whole thing, frankly, is a mess. Huawei claims that the Hongmeng operating system is for industrial use and is not an Android replacement and U.S. firms have no idea what they can or cannot ship to the manufacturer. Any phone that was in development before May 16th, when Huawei was placed on the Entity List, can use the Google Play services version of Android. That includes the Mate 20 X 5G and the foldable Mate X. But chairman Liang Hua says that "whether or not other upcoming phones can use Android will be up to the U.S. government."

"Our consumer business was growing rapidly before May 16, and since that day there has been some slowdown. And objectively speaking, we will face some challenges in the coming half...Our strategy with the global smartphone business remains unchanged. We will continue to serve our smartphones to global consumers. And we will continue to invest heavily in R&D."-Liang Hua, chairman, Huawei
