Huawei might sell Honor smartphone unit

Budget phones are probably not worth the limited chips we have

Huawei is in talks with Digital China Group and other suitors to sell parts of its Honor smartphone unit in a deal that could fetch up to 25 billion yuan ($3.7 billion).

Huawei, which is fighting US sanctions, is apparently thinking it is better to focus on its higher end Huawei phones rather than the Honor brand which is aimed at young people and the budget conscious, they said.

The assets to be sold have yet to be finalised but could include Honor’s brand, research & development capabilities, and related supply chain management business, two of the people said.

The deal may be an all cash sale and could end up smaller, worth somewhere between 15 billion yuan and 25 billion yuan, one of the people said.
