Currently, it is Huawei to be put on the blacklist of the USA. But, what if Xiaomi has been added to the list too? Here’s what the company would do. During an interview, the Xiaomi product manager Abi Go talked about several interesting topics, including the US Ban issue.
For its part, Xiaomi is already ready for a possible ban on the part of the American government. The top executive said that part of the company’s revenue is already fueling manufacturing and semiconductor companies in order to create a chain that can make smartphones without counting on the help of US companies.
Xiaomi seems to have no fear if the “worst” happens
«We are currently evaluating the situation. But at the moment there has been no ‘contagion effect’. In fact, we are working ‘side by side’ and intensively with US companies, such as Qualcomm, in our chipsets, or Google, in our products of the IoT (Internet of Things) ecosystem.” says Xiaomi global product manager.
“In any case, if in the future something happens we have a plan B. Among other things we are investing a lot in several semiconductor manufacturers in China. But we believe that our business strategy should not be conditioned by the decisions made by politicians. So far we have opted to integrate the best components in our products. In addition, we will continue to do so in the future”.
“We are convinced that what is really important is that we always do our best without caring about what our competitors do. We believe that it is positive to have competition because it forces us to try our best. Our strategy is to do what we think we should do, and always do our best.” says the Xiaomi spokeswoman.
What about the software? Is it possible that Xiaomi can also rely on Harmony OS? In that case, Google should be careful, because it will lose its dominance in the mobile OS market.
We will see what will happen but Xiaomi seems to have no fear if the “worst” happens.
