Huawei is undoubtedly one of the largest smartphone manufacturers in the world. The recent national emergency called by President Trump seems to have been a significant blow to the company. Google followed up by announcing Huawei phones would not be able to use the Android operating system in the future.
The recent declaration restricts American telecommunications firms from installing foreign-made equipment that could potentially pose a threat to national security. Google has almost no choice when it comes to complying with the order.
Does anyone think that the company and the Chinese government is only going to roll over in the fight against Huawei? Ren Zhengfei is a Chinese entrepreneur and engineer. He is the founder and CEO of Shenzhen-based Huawei, the world’s largest manufacturer of telecommunications equipment and second largest manufacturer of smartphones.
His stance on the current situation included a statement on Apple in which that retaliation by Beijing against Apple was unlikely. He did, however, acknowledge that export restrictions from the administration of US President Donald Trump will undoubtedly cut into a two-year lead built by Huawei over its competitors.
What happens next remains to be seen.
