40% to 60% drop in Huawei’s international smartphone shipments

After delaying the launch of the foldable smartphone and canceling the laptop launch, we can clearly see how Trump Administration and export ban have affected the Chinese company’s business. According to Bloomberg, Huawei is expecting a 40% to 60% drop in its international smartphone shipments. This is all because of the export ban. The company has half of its business on the international platform.

Bloomberg has also reported that Huawei is going to delay or cancel its next smartphone launch if the condition of sales doesn’t improve. The phone is expected to be released on 21st June in certain parts of Europe. However, the report states that:

“executives are monitoring the launch and may cut off shipments if it sells poorly as expected.”

Carriers are also considered under this situation. The report also notes that two of the main carries in France have already backed out from selling the device.

Huawei sent a report to Ars and other outlets informing that the launch of Honor 20 is still scheduled for 21st June. Also, Honor 20 Pro is soon going to be available in the overseas markets.

Consumers who are already informed about the condition of the brand is hardly going to pick up a Huawei phone after so much of uncertainty revolving around the brand. After the expiry of the 90-day support, it is not sure whether the consumers will have access to future Android and security updates on their smartphones. However, the company is still expecting that uninformed customers are still going to buy their phone.

The prices of the smartphone have already reduced because of some trade-in shops rejecting to sell the device. This is going to affect the prices of the upcoming phone from Huawei. If the company is able to sell some products, it has to be at a steep discount.

Production starts for the New Nintendo Switch at the E3 2019

According to the news, Nintendo is coming out with two new Switch consoles this year. There has not been any kind of official announcement from Nintendo till now. It is expected that Nintendo will be announcing their consoles during E3. According to the report from The Wall Street Journal, this week during E3 2019, the company has revealed some of the details of the upcoming Nintendo Switch. The report also proves that Nintendo has started its console to Southeast Asia instead of China.

The President of United States Donald Trump has put an import tax of 25 percent and this would impact the gaming consoles a lot. The prices of gaming consoles will also increase rapidly. This will not only affect Nintendo but also Sony and Microsoft. Consoles are not the place where a company makes money. A company ends up making money on the games and services that come with the console.

If the 25 percent import tax is levied, then the prices of Nintendo will surely go up drastically. This will directly affect the sales numbers for all the console companies. Nintendo has tried making money on each and every console since 2017. The 25 percent tax will surely eat up the profit for Nintendo. This is one of the major reasons why the console company decided to shift its production from China.

According to the latest reports from WSJ, Nintendo has already moved production from the Switch model. The new consoles will only be different from each other in the form factor. One will be a high-end variant with more specifications and another one will be a cheaper option with fewer options available. Since the consoles are now in the production stage, they will be released soon.

Nintendo did not comment anything on these rumors. It is still not clear when Nintendo will be announcing all their consoles. The company has not discussed any new hardware in the conference this week. This decision has shocked a lot of people. Nintendo has a history of revising their older models and selling them. According to the rumors, it will definitely be a refined new version of the old console. A lot of things will be changed in the new consoles which have made a lot of Nintendo fans very excited. There will be a new release of Witcher 3 and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild available for this console.
