Huawei hopes to finally obtain permission to re-use Google software
uawei needs to ensure that its 5nm cutting-edge Kirin 9000 chipset inventory is not exhausted
At the beginning of last year, Huawei surpassed Samsung and became the world’s largest smartphone manufacturer in one fell swoop. This is the goal the company has been pursuing since 2016. But by the fourth quarter of last year, shipments fell by 42% annually, leaving the company behind Samsung, Apple and the hotly-sought Xiaomi. This year, Huawei sold its Honor sub-brand for $15 billion, a move aimed at removing Honor from the US ban. As a result, some analysts this year expect Huawei to fall to seventh place in the ranking of smartphones, and Honor will follow closely behind, ranking eighth. For Huawei, which is accused of having close ties with the Chinese Communist government, this is a long fall. As a result, it has become a national security threat to the United States. The new Biden administration has the responsibility to reverse the damage caused by the previous administration. Currently, President Biden does not seem to be interested in doing anything about it, although to be fair, he has some more pressing issues, including the coronavirus. For Huawei, such a move is vital to its future. Purdy said: “The sooner we decide to return to Google, the better.”
Huawei said it really hopes that Biden will improve US-China relations. Ren said that Huawei is interested in buying equipment from American companies again, and said that allowing it to do so is beneficial to both countries. When you consider that Huawei has been able to enter its US supply chain unhindered for a full year, the company has indeed spent $18 billion in the pockets of American companies, which is indeed correct. Ironically, Huawei is not the only company affected by the entity list. The untold story here is that many American technology companies lost their business due to the decision of the previous government.
Ren said: “We hope that the new US government will adopt an open policy for American companies and the economic development of the United States. We still hope that we can purchase a large amount of American materials, parts and equipment so that we can all benefit from China’s growth.” The Gao Guan also said last week that Huawei has 1 billion active smartphones. The goal will be to follow Apple’s game plan and sell services to it and charge recurring subscription fees.
