A couple of days back, we announced that Huawei’s CEO Richard Yu thought Huawei could have been the world’s largest cameraphone marker, surpassing Samsung in 2019, if not for the U.S. ban. However that doesn’t rule out the chance of Huawei becoming world’s no.1 even with the ban in place.
Huawei’s CEO and founder, Ren Zhengfei said in an interview with CNN that Huawei can become the world’s no.1 cameraphone maker even without Google. After asked whether the manufacturer had a backup plan, Ren said that Huawei is working on a large scale solution to tackle this situation. He was likely referring to the company’s own HarmonyOS platform that was announced back in August in China.
He moreover said that he doesn’t know whether Google was ‘definitively ‘denied a license to trade with Huawei. This response arrives at a time when some companies have been granted a license to trade with the telecommunications giant. For example, Microsoft recently got a license to export software to Huawei by the U.S. commerce department. Because of to the trade license, Microsoft might supply Windows 10 to Huawei’s fresh MateBook D notebooks in China.
However, the real question in our minds is whether Google will ever receive a license to trade with Huawei. It’s been six months since the U.S. ban arrived into effect and newly unveiled Huawei phones do not function Google programs which have become much more or much less essential for international users. And with no Google, Huawei phones are basically dead on arrival in the international markets.

However today’s comment reveals that Ren is Quite optimistic about Huawei’s comeback. He added in the interview that it was a matter of waiting for few time until Huawei received back into the international markets. According to Ren, Huawei will make a comeback in the upcoming 2 years.
“We will have to resort to alternatives. If these alternatives become mature, I think it’ll become fewer heading to swap back to previous versions,” added Ren at the interview “It is a critical moment for all of us, I hope the US government could think about what’s best for American companies.”
Although we still don’t have idea which Huawei is planning for the international markets with no Google, it’s existing strategy has been to double down its efforts in China. And thanks to the profits boosts in its home market, the manufacturer is doing better than most additional phone companies on a global scale.
