In an exclusive interview with CNN, Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei was clear. He believes Huawei could become the world’s best-selling smartphone brand even without Google.
If you don’t know, reaching first place in smartphone sales was Huawei’s big goal for 2019. However, for alleged security reasons, The company has been banned from dealing with United States companies, which prevents it from using Google services and applications at its most recent devices.
Huawei aspires to dethrone Samsung
Although Huawei is already the leader in telecommunications equipment, in the mobile segment Samsung is still the leader. Leadership is harder without devices with the Play Store, Gmail, Maps, or Youtube, but Huawei is confident.
“I don’t think this is a problem,” says Ren Zhengfei about Google. However, The Chinese company has repeatedly said that it prefers to work together with Google if possible.
Please note that Microsoft has already received a special license to do business with the Chinese company, provided this does not compromise US national security. According to Ren, Google has not yet had any license approved.
The truth is that Huawei continues to have good results in its sales, thanks to its domestic market. The company now waits patiently for Google to get its license to continue working with it or it will have to go its own way.
