Huawei has been blacklisted.

Singaporeans who are panicking are putting their bricks Huawei devices for sale on Carousell.

This is despite reassurances that existing Huawei devices are still able to run Google apps (Google Maps, YouTube, Gmail) — just that newer devices can’t.

But there is no stopping the contagion as it has spread to second-hand mobile shops in Singapore.
