Honor may yet be slammed with a Huawei-esque trade ban in the US

Honor was formed as a high-value, budget sub-brand by Huawei, but was sold last year in an attempt to disassociate the brand from Huawei and its troubles with the US government. That move may prove to have been worthless soon, though, as a group of fourteen US politicians are reportedly lobbying for Honor to be added to the US's Entity List.

Perhaps in an attempt to shrug off the attention of the US, Honor disassociated itself from Huawei last year. That doesn't seem to have done much good, though, as it appears the Chinese company may also be slammed with the same limitations as its parent company.

According to a new report by the South China Morning Post, Republican politicians led by Foreign Affairs Committee member Michael McCaul are lobbying for Honor to be added to the US's Entity List—a list that would see it unable to do business with US companies. The reason for this move is simple: the group of 14 believe that Honor, as a spawn of Huawei, poses a similar threat to US security.

While there may be some truth to that, Honor stands as an independent company completely separate from Huawei at the moment. On paper at least. Honor was established by Huawei as a value brand to compete against companies like Xiaomi, but was sold last year for over US$15 billion to a consortium of agents. This sale ensured that the company has been able to do business with US suppliers but that may be coming to an end shortly. 

Buy the Honor Band 6 on Amazon.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
