Earlier this month, the United States’ President Trump issues an executive order that bans Huawei from buying parts and components from U.S. companies. Following the ban, Google was also reported to suspend its business with Huawei, which Huawei will soon lose access to Android OS’s updates and popular services such as Google Play Store. In response to the controversy, Huawei’s founder and CEO, Ren Zhengfei has shared some comments during media interviews in Shenzhen recently.
According to Ren Zhengfei, the 90-day temporary license granted by the U.S. won’t make much difference to them. Huawei is fully prepared for this and will focus on making sure that their job is properly done. He expressed confidence in Huawei’s 5G technology development, saying that other parties will not be able to catch up with them in the next two or three years.
He also mentioned that it is difficult for Huawei to make its own chips, but they are working hard for many years and their efforts will slowly bear fruits. They will not exclude the use of buying U.S. made chips nor be isolated from the world, even if the cost of their own chips is lower.
“In the future, we still have to buy U.S. chips on a large scale, as long as they have a license to sell. But if there is a shortage on supply, then we will have a backup.” He said.
At the same time, Ren Zhengfei stressed that Huawei will continue to serve customers.
Majority of the concerns are for gamers that use Huawei phones to play games. Despite all these Huawei phones such as Huawei Mate 20 X and P30 Pro are still pretty good for gaming, unable to access Google Play on future products will force users to resort to direct APK download or using apps like Qooapp to get access to games.
