Huawei founder reveals plans to beat US sanctions
Even without GMS, the Duo will run on the Huawei P40 Pro until March 31
Note that the code strings for Duo refer to unsupported devices, as opposed to unproven devices with messages. While unsupported phones do not comply with the Google mobile service ecosystem and are treated similarly to most unproven models, the difference is that after the Duo closes for these handsets on March 31, there will be a 14-day grace period, In which users will be able to save and download their data from the Duo before the service stops.
Meanwhile, Huawei founder Ren Zhenfei gave a speech last June detailing how Huawei can avoid the restrictions placed on it by the US. The speech was published only last week and ended in the South China Morning Post (SCMP). Zhenfei, who is also CEO of Huawei, said the company needed to decentralize its operations, focus on making profits, simplify product lines and freeze for three to five years. The 76-year-old executive said that American actions against Huawei made it difficult for the company to carry out its original globalization plans and forced Huawei to develop its own production lines. As Zhenfei put it, “There is a great mismatch between our ability and strategy. This is our weak link, and we are forced to start like elementary school students from the beginning.”
Zhenfei says that Huawei will not be defeated, nor will it be offended by American speaking for Huawei during the summer, with Ren saying, “Please do not bother because of temporary US pressure, or abandon our globalization strategy.” Give. There is no future without embracing globalization (in development and research). “In addition to motivating employees while maintaining frozen salaries for the next three to five years, Ren said Huawei is on the bottom line. There is a need to focus. “We should gradually focus from the top line to the bottom line. Not all product lines … should be pursued visually to become number 1 … We don’t always have the conditions to fight number 1 , “Said Ren. “We must create value and reasonable profits to ensure healthy growth.” So instead of worrying about the number of Huawei units, the company’s founder says it needs to focus on profitability.
According to Ren, America wants Huawei to die. He said, “Initially, we thought we might have done something wrong in compliance and we did the test ourselves; but then there was a second shock and a third setback. Then we realized that they wanted our death … but to survive. Desire. Inspired us too “.
