Yu Chengdong, CEO of Huawei’s consumer business, said in his speech at the 2020 summit of the 100 people’s Conference on China’s informatization held on August 7, that under the influence of the second round of sanctions imposed by the United States, Huawei’s Kirin series chips will not be able to be manufactured after September 15 this year, and the upcoming 5g flagship Huawei mate 40 will become a “out of print” model carrying Huawei’s own Kirin chip.
“our mobile phone business is very difficult now, and the chip supply is difficult.” According to Yu Chengdong, Huawei is facing the stage of chip shortage recently. If there is no chip supply for Huawei mobile phones, the production capacity will be directly affected.
“in the second quarter of this year, Huawei’s global mobile phone shipment exceeded Samsung’s, ranking first.” In Yu Chengdong’s view, the world’s number one achievement was achieved in an “unfair competition” under “sanctions”.
even though his hands and feet are tied, Yu Chengdong still shows the brilliant “report card” of Huawei’s consumer business in the first half of 2020: the sales revenue in the first half of 2020 is 255.8 billion yuan, and the global shipment of Huawei mobile phones reaches 105 million units.
talking about Huawei’s R & D and innovation in the field of chips for more than ten years, Yu Chengdong said that Huawei has crossed the stage from seriously lagging behind to gradually catching up and now leading the world. Although the period is difficult, Huawei has invested a lot in R & D and related resources.
in Yu Chengdong’s view, it is a pity that Huawei did not participate in the chip manufacturing process, which made Kirin series chips unable to be produced after September 15 after the second round of US sanctions. “This is a very big loss.”
in his speech, Yu Chengdong also stressed that Huawei is making efforts in basic research such as physics and materials science to explore precision manufacturing such as semiconductors. In addition, in terms of terminal components, Huawei will also increase the R & D and innovation of materials and core technologies, with the goal of realizing the linkage between new materials and new processes, and breaking through the bottleneck brought by chips as soon as possible.
