Platform News: Huawei Technologies

Huawei Technologies will do whatever it can to strengthen its supply chain which has already been “attacked”, its own rotating Chairman Guo Ping has stated.

Guo was talking on Wednesday at the Chinese smartphone and telecoms gear maker’s annual Huawei Connect event in Shanghai that focuses on communications and information technology.

He didn’t give details about the assault.

Vendors say that prices have spiked by as much as 500 yuan (approximately $73.69) for some apparatus in response to high demand.

The organisation had been stockpiling chips from several vendors ahead of the constraints’ implementation.
