Huawei committed to Android in latest interview
« on: July 05, 2019, 04:49:01 AM »

Now that the dust is settling from Huawei’s trade ban whereby it could no longer purchase US products, we got to sit down with the President of Huawei’s Consumer Business Group in Western Europe, Walter Ji, and talk about recent events, how they have affected the company, and what can be expected from the world’s second largest smartphone manufacturer in the near future.
No Android replacement and future smartphone market growth

Although Huawei currently has access to Google’s version of Android and all of the associated services, political issues dating back to May meant the company could have temporarily lost access to all of this, putting the future of its entire smartphone business at risk. Naturally, these developments led to talks about potentially replacing Android in the near future. Some have even suggested the company should introduce its own operating system despite having recently regained access to Google’s platform. Huawei, however, doesn’t necessarily agree.

When asked directly about the situation, Walter Ji stated that Huawei remains “focused and very committed to remaining in the Android ecosystem.” The company has “contributed a lot” to Android over the course of the past ten years and always puts “consumer experience as a priority. That’s why, despite the challenges we are facing, we’re committed to [the] market [and] we’re committed to improving our brand through innovation for consumers.” Last year, as Mr. Ji noted, Huawei invested a whopping $15 billion into R&D, more than many of its closest competitors.
