Huawei is still having issues in the smartphone business due to multiple constraints and sanctions. As per recent reports, the company gave up the European market and will stay limited in China. Despite the issues, the company still tries to find its way into the business. It is developing new hardware, finding a way to use 5G, and also developing HarmonyOS as a viable solution over Android and iOS. Apparently, the company’s efforts are attractive to some brands. Remember the French brand Wiko? It’s borrowing a particular Huawei phone to launch it as Wiko 5G.
This is not Huawei’s new way to escape China. In fact, it is Wiko that is entering the Chinese market with Wiko 5G. The company will launch the new phone as its first device in China on December 27. The device will be a rebadged Huawei Nova 9 SE 5G running Huawei’s HarmonyOS.
