The interim president of the Chinese Huawei technology, Liang Hua, said on Friday that, despite the fact that the US president, Donald Trump, agreed with his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, the lifting of the veto on technology at the last summit of the G20 in Osaka (Japan), “we have not yet seen any tangible changes”.
At a press conference held in Shenzhen City, where the company has its headquarters, Liang acknowledged that “we know that Huawei is still on the US blacklist” and demanded that the US lift the veto completely.
This alleged end to technology harassment was one of the achievements of the meeting between the leaders of the two economic powers, after which they sealed a truce and resumed talks to end the trade war that they have been leading for more than a year.
Interim president of Huawei said that, despite the veto that the United States has suffered in recent months, the company’s revenues will increase in the first half of the year, financial data that will be known later this month.
“Huawei is now moving forward as usual and, speaking of numbers, we are going to offer our financial results at the end of this month and I still can not offer specific details, but what I can say is that for the first half of this year we are going to see a increase in our revenues” Liang said.
The manager responded to rumors published these days about the possible presentation in August of the Hong Meng operating system that the company has designed and that could replace Android, if the United States backs down and Google can not provide Android updates.
“Hong Meng has been built for the internet side of things” Liang explained, but “for mobile phones, our first option is still to keep using the Android operating system.”
However, he did not rule out that the company will also use it on their phones. “We have not yet decided if we will use it on our own smartphones, but since it has been developed for the internet of things, we would like it to be used for that, to apply it in the 5G ecosystem,” he added.
Liang refused, however, to confirm or deny that the operating system will be presented during the Huawei Developer Conference, which will be held from 9 to 11 August, as various sources in the sector have pointed out over the last few days.
If the technology company, one of the companies that sells the most phones in the world, finally decides to put the Hong Meng in use on their phones, this would be a milestone for the telephony sector since it could put an end to the duopoly exercised by Google today. Android and Apple with IOS.
