Under this US ban Huawei made excellent, if not perfect smartphone that has just one downside... No Google services

If a company spies on you like Google it's bad but if the company is handing over your data to the government that's betrayal, treacherous and horrific.

I Hope under the Biden administration Huawei's ban get lifted competition has always been good for consumers

Will the new Honor allow Bootloader Unlock? If yes, I may unlock my Y9 prime 2019 and flash Android 11 GSI as it is a rebranded version of Honor 9X.

Jesvin J., 17 Nov 2020IMO, Huawei should have waited for a few months.But it can be their sale losses which triggered the decision, especially there's still uncertainty on Biden's take on this matter.

If you can't beat them, sanction them. But in the end the Chinese company are going to win over Americans that can't compete fairly.

Honor's 2019 profit was CNY~6B, but valued to fetch USD~40B for Huawei in this deal. ARM was worth USD40B in the sale to Nvidia. If Honor could maintain its current profits(questionable since the smartphone market is already contracting), it would take 42 years for this "consortium of investors"(over 98% of which is actually controlled by the Shenzhen government) to break even, so seeing the numbers anybody could realize that this is more political than economical.
This is yet another move by the CCP to give Huawei another significant infusion, just like last year when Chinese carriers were forced into NSA 5G that was in turn scheduled to be replaced by SA 5G starting next year, which generates huge profits for Huawei yet nothing but huge waste for the carriers and the society in general.
It would be interesting to see how US sanctions adjust to this, because with a little digging one could see that Honor would be officially owned by the government, it gives a chance for the US Department of Commerce to either let this pass or reinstate the sanctions to the "new" entity.
