British Media: HuaweiFacing a "Long March of Pain"

According to the Daily Telegraph website on August 12, the plan is intended to address the problems caused by Huawei's inclusion in the so-called "entity list". The list prohibits U.S. technology companies from trading with Huawei without the approval of the U.S. government.

Ren Zhengfei said in an internal memorandum to employees first seen by Bloomberg News Agency reporters that the actions of the United States may endanger Huawei's intelligence.Mobile phoneThe overall position of the industry. In his letter, he said: "We must complete the thorough transformation under difficult and difficult conditions and build an Invincible Iron Army that can help us win. We feel we need to complete this restructuring in three to five years.

Ren Zhengfei said the company would face a "painful long march", suggesting that part of its business might be abandoned in restructuring.

He had previously warned that the United States had underestimated Huawei, claiming that it was "fully prepared" to avoid extreme supply shortages during the U.S. threat of sanctions earlier this year.

The latest announcement comes after the Chinese smartphone maker launched an operating system called Hongmeng last week, the report said.Hongmeng Systems will serve as a backup system for the company when it is cut off from its business with U.S. suppliers.

Australian media:Huawei announced the closure of Berwood's R&D Center

According to the website of Australia's Sydney Morning Herald on August 12,Huawei, a Chinese technology giant, has abandoned its R&D investment of A$60 million (A$1, or 4.76 RMB) in Victoria, Australia, because of the "current negative environment" and the uncertainties brought about by recent changes in federal regulations.

Reported that at a time of growing debate in Australia about how to deal with China's rise, Huawei quietly announced that it would close its R&D center in Birwood next month, thereby reducing 15 highly specialized jobs.

Huawei's decision comes after Australian Communications Minister Paul Fletcher ruled out last month the lifting of a ban on Huawei's sale of 5G equipment in Australia for national security reasons.

The Chinese telecom equipment company invested A$60 million in the Berwood Center to develop software for telecommunications networks in Australia and around the world.

Huawei said in a letter to Victoria Trade Minister Martin Pakula: "Due to the current negative environment and the uncertainties brought about by recent changes in federal regulations, the company no longer has confidence in further investment in R&D in Australia."

Brent Holly, Huawei's head of government and shareholder relations, said: "Huawei's headquarters decision is based not on a particular factor, but on a series of issues. All R & D investment decisions are based on overall market demand and overall investment environment. "

Hurley said the rest of Huawei's Australian business would not be affected. "Our business (for businesses, medical institutions, mining companies, transport operators) will continue, and our consumer business (smartphones, smart watches, tablets, etc.) will continue to receive substantial investment," he said.

French media:Huawei Opens a New Front of Technological Warfare with the United States

According to French media, with its new mobile operating system, Hongmeng Operating System, China Telecom giant Huawei has opened a new front of technological war with the United States, competing positively with Android in a very special but highly profitable market.

According to Agence France-Presse on August 12, the smartphone operating system market is currently completely monopolized by two American vendors. One side isAppleThe company, whose operating system is unique to its Apple phone, has Google, whose Android system is used by almost all of its competitors, including Huawei.

Stephane Traer, executive director of mobile industrial research at IHS Markett, stressed that China is "a world-class R & D powerhouse." He said, "When Huawei joined the user market in 2011, some people were skeptical, but they grew up extraordinarily. They can make the market accept a third operating system."

Reported that other companies have tried to introduce a third operating system. The first is BlackBerry, which has been launched for its BlackBerry phone since 1999, but the BlackBerry phone has been flooded by the rise of smartphones.MicrosoftIn 2010, the company installed Microsoft for Nokia's mobile phones in Finland, and Nokia missed the switch to smartphones.

The report also said that South KoreaSamsungCompanies have tried new operating systems, but failed, which reduces the enthusiasm of major companies to develop new systems.

Sylvain Shevalier, a partner at Bieber, cautioned, "Samsung thought about it, but it didn't really launch." In Huawei's case, its domestic market will give it a lot of influence. All Chinese applications, such as WeChat and Alipay, will be compatible with Hongmeng system, which makes its chances of success very credible.

The report points out that in a country with more than 800 million smartphone users, Huawei has all the trump cards to reassuringly improve the strength of its Hongmeng operating system.

Stephane Trail further said, "they have a platform of 1 billion potential users to test their applications, which can quickly detect errors and correct them."

Sylvain Shevalier, in particular, believes Huawei is "clearly going to make a difference" in emerging markets. He says places such as India, Indonesia and Africa are gradually switching to smartphones, where users are not used to some particular operating system.

He stressed that, in addition to the various technical characteristics of mobile phones, the operating system is an absolutely trustworthy factor, "for example, the Apple mobile phone is mainly dependent on its own operating system to maintain a stable state."

According to the report,Huawei may soon become more than a lone fighter. It will see other mobile phone manufacturers in China transfer their phones to the operating system in China, especially if it has the accompanying application ecosystem, which the country will greatly promote.

However, more than 55% of smartphones currently use Android, according to Canterboint Research.

Even so, it's enough to make Google sweat.

The American group declined to comment on questions from AFP reporters.

However, Trall confirmed that "there is the possibility of seeing all Chinese manufacturers switch to this operating system. That's what Google is worried about right now, and it could even change Silicon Valley.

Because Hongmeng System does not want to be just an operating system for smartphones, but also a new type of intelligence for all Huawei Internet objects.televisionOperating system.
