Last week we informed you that Google Messages should disappear from some models of so-called “non-certified” Android smartphones from the end of March 2021. Obviously, the models affected by this disappearance are not in the majority, but Huawei should be affected by this update again. For many months now, the Shenzhen company has been targeted by US government decisions punishing its development.
Huawei, which has already lost many providers and all Google services to date, does not want to be defeated and is constantly looking for a solution to circumvent the American ban. For example, Huawei decided to sell its Honor division so the brand could blossom away from US decisions against it. Honor, which recently unveiled its first smartphone since it split from Huawei, appears particularly optimistic about the future and has even set a goal of selling more smartphones than Huawei.
Huawei is preparing to return
76-year-old Huawei founder Ren Zhenfei stood against the wall, telling the South China Morning Post about his ambitions to fight the US sanctions. The first thing to do, according to Zhenfei, is to decentralize the brand’s operations, then focus on making profits, simplifying product lines, and freezing wages for three to five years. Ren Zhenfei said the U.S. sanctions significantly improved Huawei’s international expansion plans and prompted the company to set up its own production lines. Zhenfei sums up the situation by stating that these sanctions have caused his company to start over, losing time to its competitors.
However, Ren Zhenfei says he will never give up the United States and that no revenge is planned. Last summer, Zhenfei took the floor himself to motivate his employees in the face of this situation. He said: “Please don’t fret about temporary pressure from the United States and don’t give up on our strategy of globalization. There is no future without globalization. ” Ren Zhenfei also has the wisdom to abandon his goals of becoming number 1 in the smartphone market and explain to his employees that the most important thing so far is to create decent value and profit in order to achieve healthy growth.
Ren Zhenfei is more motivated than ever: “At first we thought we might have done something wrong and we did a self-assessment. but then the second and third blows followed. Then we understood that they wanted us to die … But the desire to survive motivated us. “
