It was not possible to bypass the sanctions: a copy of Huawei Nova 8 Pro with 5G support from TD Tech was removed from sales
Last week, Chinese phone maker TD Tech unveiled the TD Tech N8 Pro smartphone, which is on sale in the official Huawei store. This is a copy of Huawei Nova 8 Pro, which supports fifth generation networks. At the same time, TD Tech is a joint venture between Huawei and Nokia.
From the packaging to the logo on the back of the phone, it was originally thought that since this phone is TD Tech’s own solution, from the packaging to the logo on the back of the phone, it has no restrictions on the use of 5G, so it is equipped with a Kirin 985 SoC with a 5G modem.
The smartphone could be purchased within a few days, but it was unexpectedly taken off the market. JD.com, the largest marketplace, said: “This product has been discontinued. We are very sorry”.
In addition, it is reported that TD Tech has prepared another smartphone, which will be a copy of Huawei Mate 40 based on Kirin 9000E with 5G support. But it is now unknown if it will be released.
