Huawei accused of saying Taiwan is independent

In China on 17/08/2019 at 1:48 pm

Versace, Coach, Givenchy, and Swarovski faced criticism this week for listing Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan as a separate countries or regions – not part of China – on their official websites or branded T-shirts.

Well now Huawei is accused of implying in its smartphone settings that Taiwan is independent.

[U]sers on Chinese social media Weibo have expressed anger that Taiwan was listed as its own country when the default language in Huawei’s smartphone setting was set to traditional Chinese – the script used in Taiwan and Hong Kong. Mainland China mostly uses simplified Chinese.

“This is outrageous. This is how Huawei repays China?” one user said on Weibo.
