Huawei has been all over the news lately post the ban imposed by the US. For instance, the company has officially confirmed that there would be a significant sales drop of their shipments in the coming years, particularly in smartphones by a margin on 40-60%, due to the ban. Further, the chipsets makers Qualcomm and Intel have reportedly lobbied the US government to ease the ban on the Chinese multinational technology maker, Huawei.
It appears there’s more for the company post the ban, and now, there’s a new report suggesting Huawei will likely offer a 100 percent refund if Google apps and non-Google apps like Facebook or Whatsapp stop working on their Huawei products. According to the report, it appears that there’s a full refund program by Huawei for its smartphones and tablets purchases in the Philippines. The Huawei devices that include in the refund program include — the latest Huawei P30, P30 Pro, P30 Lite, the Mate 20 series, the P20 series and as well as Nova series and more (the full list can be found in the source link, mentioned below).
As for the full-refund program is concerned, all the Google apps including Gmail, Play store or Youtube and other Facebook-owned apps such Facebook, Instagram or even WhatsApp for that matter stop working, then Huawei is offering a full 100 percent refund on the device within two years of purchase. This new refund offer comes ahead after Google recently revoking its Android licenses for future Huawei phones and also Facebook recently cutting ties with the company.
This exceptional warranty offer is for Huawei devices for the Philippines, as of now. Going by the company’s efforts to come back in its sales and to ensure trust among the consumers globally, this appears to be an initial step in the right direction for now. As stated, this is for the Philippines right now, according to the report; however, we can expect a global rollout of this program regardless. If at all Google apps or Facebook apps appear to be not working on your Huawei device, you can claim a 100% refund, provided proof of purchase is necessary.
