Claim of the CEO of Huawei: We have returned to our normal work routine

Claim of the CEO of Huawei: We have returned to our normal work routine

It could be said that with the release of the Mate 50 series earlier this year, things may have returned to normal for Huawei, as when the Mate 50 series was launched, there were long queues and heavy demand for it. And now, according to Reuters, Huawei is defying US sanctions against it. Today, the company announced that its 2022 revenue was flat, marking the highest number in several years as it lost sales due to US sanctions. In fact, the 2022 revenue was 0.02% higher than the 2021 figure.

Huawei’s passing through the current critical stage

Huawei’s revenue this year is expected to be 636.9 billion yuan ($91.53 billion). This represents a financial record compared to 636.8 billion yuan recorded last year. This is despite the fact that Huawei’s income decreased by 30% last year. However, this was enough for Huawei’s interim chairman, Eric Zhou, to to write: “US restrictions are now {part of} our new normal and we are back to business as usual“. In simple terms, he talks about the ineffectiveness of sanctions.

From competing with Samsung for the first position to disappearing from the European and American markets

If you recall, in 2019 Huawei was on the verge of overtaking Samsung to become the world’s largest smartphone maker, a goal it had already made public. But in May 2019, the United States placed Huawei on a list of sanctioned entities, which prevents the company from accessing US supply chains, including Google.

This incident forced the company to develop its own HarmonyOS operating system and Huawei’s mobile service ecosystem. The following year, the United States changed an export law that fired the salvo at Huawei. Chips that used American technology to produce them were no longer allowed to ship these key components to Huawei.

The United States considers Huawei a national security threat due to its ties to the Chinese Communist Party. Additionally, there have been numerous rumors over the years that claimed Huawei hides equipment in its network equipment that spies on companies and sends encrypted data to servers in Beijing. Of course, Huawei has denied this over the past years.

As a result of the same US embargo, Huawei could no longer complete the Kirin chips, which were designed in-house by the company’s HiSilicon unit. As it stands today, the company is licensed to use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chips, which have been modified to work with 4G signals rather than 5G. Of course, it seems that Huawei has plans to license the production of the Mate 50 Pro with the possibility of 5G connectivity. In fact, if Huawei can get its patent application to fruition, it may soon have access to this advanced piece of silicon.

The patent application relates to a device the size of a school bus called an extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography machine. To help produce chips that carry billions of transistors, the EUV machine etches circuit designs onto silicon wafers. These patterns are a fraction of the width of a human hair. Only one company in the world, the Dutch company ASML, manufactures this device and currently refuses to ship it to China.

Huawei is approaching the point of liberation

So, if Huawei can help build its own indigenous EUV machine, it might help China’s largest foundry, SMIC, produce advanced chips like those made by TSMC and Samsung Foundry. However, this will not happen overnight, but we will certainly see important changes in this area in the not too distant future.

The rumor that surfaced earlier this month, if true, would be another sign of Huawei’s return to the top. Before the ban, Huawei produced two series of flagships a year. The ā€œPā€ series, which focuses on photography and is released at the beginning of each year, and the Mate series, which is released at the end of each year, has the most innovative and up-to-date features.

For the past two years, Huawei has limited itself to just one flagship line each year, alternating between the ‘P’ and Mate flagships. Last year saw the release of the P50, while this year Huawei launched the Mate 50 series. Two weeks ago, there were rumors that Huawei would release both the P60 and Mate 60 flagship models not only in the same year but in the same month (March). Although this seems far-fetched, even if the rumor is unfounded, it still seems that Huawei is slowly reaching a relative stability.
