It was reported that Huawei is preparing for a 40% to 60% decline in overseas smartphone shipments. Among the options that the Chinese tech company is looking at includes pulling the Honor 20 should it fail to meet expectations when it launches in Europe, including Britain and France on June 21.

Huawei laptops have returned on the Microsoft online stores after weeks due to the restriction that was imposed by a US government agency.

In addition, the government agency has also eased restriction for 90 days which led to changes in the way Google works with Huawei in that period. Microsoft seems to have also capitalized by resuming selling of Huawei Matebook laptops. The American tech company has released a statement which was shared in the same report that reads, “We have been evaluating, and will continue to respond to, the many business, technical and regulatory complexities stemming from the recent addition of Huawei to the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Export Administration Regulations Entity List.
