Huawei had a heavy presence at the Ai Everything event in Dubai in late April.

Huawei founder and CEO Ren Zhengfei has reportedly told Chinese state media he expects his daughter, Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou, to face some jail time after she was arrested in Canada in December and charged with violating US trade sanctions.

Wanzhou is currently under house arrest in Canada as she awaits possible extradition to the US to face charges.

Since Wanzhou's arrest, Huawei has had a major falling-out with Western nations. In May, US president Donald Trump issued an executive order banning the use of Huawei kit in the US.

Since the executive order, Huawei has been banned from Android. Companies including Google, Intel and Qualcomm have also cut ties.
