Samsung is using the U.S.-Huawei trade war to promote its smartphones. The British division of the company on Twitter posted a new marketing ad for the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, which explicitly pointed out the lack of Google services on Huawei devices.
In a recently released post, Samsung is offering to trade the Huawei P30 Pro smartphone for the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra at a £ 350 discount. The video says the following: “How to change your old Huawei to a new one without losing the Google Maps application? Better switch to Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. ” In this way, Samsung reminds of the absence of the Google Play store and Google services in the new Huawei smartphones.
Huawei has faced heavy restrictions lately following the imposition of US sanctions. After Huawei was banned from using Google services, the US government is hungry for more. The United States is actively asking European countries not to use Huawei’s 5G equipment and prohibits the supply of components using American technologies.
Switch to a Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra and get up to £350* off when you trade in your old Huawei.
Purchase from Samsung Shop Online before 08/11/20. £350 trade in value is for Huawei P30 Pro device. T&Cs apply
