Yu Chengdong: Huawei could abandon Windows and Android if need be


At last month’s MWC, Huawei released the Mate X which is Huawei first foldable and 5G device. This smartphone comes with a whopping €2,299 ($2,585) and it is expected to go on sale in June. In an interview, Huawei’s consumer business CEO, Yu Chengdong, believes that after one to two years, the foldable smartphone price will plunge to about €1000 ($1124) and after other brands enter the market, it will go as low as €500 ($562). Yu Chengdong said that if the commercialization of the folding screen mobile phone is successful, then Huawei can increase the mass production scale at any time.

Furthermore, Yu Chengdong also said that if forced, Huawei will give up Windows and Android systems for internal solutions, but for now, the company still have priority to cooperate with ecological partners such as Microsoft and Google.

When talking about opponents, Yu Chengdong said that Huawei and Samsung are very close in terms of shipments, and they will surpass Samsung to take the leading position in the smart phone industry before the end of next year. As for Apple, Yu Chengdong’s point of view is that Huawei’s ability to innovate far exceeds the former. He claims that Apple’s inability to release a foldable smartphone his year or even next year attest to the fact that Huawei is ahead in terms of innovation.

    Really Huawei ? Underestimating apple is a big joke. Apple things about profit and profit only, that’s why they hardly foray into something different or new quickly… They like the idea to be welcome before they join the train and they always make more money than those there before them, notched phone is an example

      that’s not the history of apple, it’s lack of innovation is killing it. rthe same as when jobs first left. Remember who invented the smartphone. now apple is just a brand with bloated prices. and declining sales
