Huawei CEO Says He Would Oppose Chinese Retaliation Against iPhone Maker
HUAWEI CEO – Founder of Huawei Ren Zhengfei said he would oppose if China will retaliate against Apple.
As of this moment, the world’s No. 1 telecom supplier and 2nd best smartphone maker Huawei is experiencing one of their biggest troubles.
The Chinese telecom giant was banned in the United States and some other countries due to the alleged spyware equipped on their smartphones.
However, the US hasn’t released any certain facts about the allegations towards Huawei.
The Chinese telecom company has long denied the accusations and continued their progress despite the banning.
Aside from the banning in some countries, all Google software and YouTube was also blocked on the latest smartphones created by Huawei.
Based on a report from Business times, Huawei founder and CEO Ren Zhengfei told Bloomberg that he would oppose if China would have their revenge against the iPhone maker, Apple.
“That (chinse retaliation against Apple) will not happen first of all and second of all, it that happens, I’ll be the first to protest,” said Ren.
According to the report, Mr. Ren Zhengfei admitted that their sales will cut into a two-year lead following US President Donald Trump’s banning.
He also said that they will continue or ramp up their chips supply or find another way to stay as the leading manufacturer of smartphones in the world.
