Huawei has stopped smartphone production after previously announcing its target to become the world’s top smartphone vendor by next year, according to a report from the South China Morning Post. The report specified that the halt was by Foxconn, “the Taiwanese electronics manufacturer that assembles handsets products for many phone brands including Apple and Xiaomi,” amid reduced orders for new phones. “As the new situation has emerged, it is too early to say whether we are able to achieve the goal,” Zhao Ming, president of Honor, a Huawei smartphone brand, told reporters. He was responding to questions about Huawei’s plan to beat Samsung Electronics in smartphone sales before the end of 2020. The newspaper cited multiple “people familiar with the matter,” who were not named. The company’s global smartphone sales swelled to 15.7% in the first quarter of 2019 from 10.5% in the same period last year, according to data from industry research firm Gartner.
