Huawei’s US ban is expected to run long and thus the company asks Foxconn to halt production lines for several Huawei phones after the Shenzhen-based company sees the fall in orders. This report has been shared by the South China Morning Post. Foxconn is a Taiwanese technology manufacturer which also makes devices of Apple and Xiaomi alongside the Huawei mobiles.

Another side, Foxconn could also see a dip in the business, but can at least boast several other high profile contracts from that of Apple, Xiaomi, and Google.

It was all started in May when top US companies stopped providing services and tech components to Huawei amid US government ban orders. This has impacted a lot to various fields of Huawei’s business especially the smartphone manufacturing as the company is complete reliance on Google’s Android operating system for its smartphones.

Last year, Huawei promised to beat Samsung in the world smartphone market by 2020 and become the number one smartphone vendor. Now, it seems all its dream will never come true due to the Huawei ban from various top companies including Intel, ARM, Qualcomm, Broadcom, Google, and others. “As the new situation has emerged, it is too early to say whether we are able to achieve the goal,” says Zhao Ming, current rotating president of Huawei.
