Vietnam to check Huawei, Xiaomi phones for ‘map’

Bloomberg

Vietnam will inspect all phones imported from China, such as Huawei and Xiaomi models, the Tuoi Tre newspaper reports citing Nguyen Hung Anh, head of Vietnam Customs’ anti-smuggling and investigation department.
At issue is whether the Chinese-made phones come with preinstalled navigation apps that use maps reflecting Chinese territorial claims rejected by Hanoi, such as the expansive nine-dash line claims in the South China Sea that overlap resource-rich maritime areas Vietnam says are within in its exclusive economic waters.
The US has said the area under dispute could contain oil and gas reserves worth $2.5 trillion.
Vietnam has been the most aggressive Southeast Asian nation pushing back on Chinese maritime claims.
