According to Daniel Dias, senior manager of business development at Huawei Brasil, the Chinese manufacturer is betting on the Brazilian clothing market. Today, these products are indispensable.

Huawei in Brazil
Huawei has been in the spotlight recently because of a ban signed by U.S. President Donald Trump on charges of spying. As a result, the company laid off about 600 employees in its American subsidiary and the company even announced a cell phone, the Mate 30, without support for Google applications. Despite this, in an interview with state, the Huawei executive denies that the operation in Brazil has been impacted by the problem.
However, Huawei continues without forecasts for new smartphone launches in Brazil the company only sells two smartphones in Brazil, the P30 Lite and the P30 Pro, launched in April last year. To buy the already launched Mate X, the brand's foldable cell phone, fans will also have to wait longer: the device remains without a launch date in Brazil.
On smartphones, Dias says that Huawei is focused on working around devices, developing an ecosystem. The company is developing its own services, the so-called Huawei Mobile Services, which are expected to replace Google's applications on mobile phones. In addition, Huawei last week announced an agreement with TomTom, a Dutch company that will supply its digital map services to the Chinese giant's smartphones around the world as the market leader, Google Maps, does not can be used by Huawei, as well as other Android apps.
