According to Huawei founder and Chief Executive Ren Zhengfei, smartphones banned by the US administration would cost the company $30 billion in revenue this year and sales outside China has dropped 40 per cent in the past month. The company’s overseas business would be mainly affected by the US export control.

Meanwhile, the company has been facing growing pressure from the US in recent months, especially after Washington issued an export control that partially bans US tech companies from exporting components and technologies to them.

The company, betting big on the 5G network rollout in India, is set to start trials with partner telcos soon and is also looking at capturing a bigger share of the Indian smartphone market.
