Awaits US license to launch 5G phones: Huawei
Why Huawei is not launching 5G phones? The Huawei chief answered questions on this matter, saying that the company awaits a U.S. supply license to bring 5G phones.
Xu Zhijun said that Huawei is waiting for the U.S. department of commerce’s license to get 5G technologies for new phones and launch them among consumers.
Back in 2019, Huawei was enlisted in the U.S. commerce department blacklist. Since then, the company cannot buy new technologies for its smartphones such as chips and Google services. Huawei also lost access to its own Kirin chipsets, as the TSMC also denied printing new ones.
That’s why, the lack of 5G RF and chip components barred the company from producing 5G phones. This forced Huawei to build only 4G devices. Its recent flagships including P60 and Mate X3 also come with only 4G access.
Xu Zhijun says that the smartphone business is mostly affected by the U.S. sanctions and it caused a massive drop in Huawei’s smartphone market share. With current access to 4G chips, Huuawei can only make 4G smartphones, he mentioned.
Despite these questions, Xu confidently said that there are people who are willing to still buy a 4G phone. As Huawei has greatly improved its camera, foldable screen, and other parts of its devices.
To cover up, Huawei’s latest flaghip is opened with big demand in China, and Huawei pre-selling a good amount of units ahead of an official sale. Without 5G, Huawei phones are focusing on other aspects of user experience such as build quality and better software features.
Last year, Xu Zhijun stressed that 5G is a big issue for Huawei devices but the company will not give up on its mobile business. At that time, Mr. Xu also expected a recovery from this loss may take several years.
In future, users won’t buy phones without 6G: Huawei
Huawei is currently working on the next generation of mobile network technology called 5.5G. However, the Chinese tech maker said that future smartphone consumers won’t buy new phones without 6G technology.
The latest statement made by Huawei’s Rotating chairman comes after the 2022 annual business report. He said that Huawei will deploy 5.5G around the world somewhere in 2025.
This next-gen network technology will improve the user experience from various perspectives. Also, it will revolutionize the digitalization of all businesses.
However, the Huawei chief also talked about 6G. Xu explained that no one knows about 6G and currently, it’s just a concept.
Meanwhile, it’s a goal for the industry and Huawei is working with industry partners to define 6G along with its research and development.
The Huawei chief then turned his view on the future of 6G. He told that 6G will be unnecessary in the face of low innovation and then, maybe we can live with 5.5G technology for a long time.
The Huawei chief elaborates that the company still hopes that the future network will arrive otherwise, there will be no growth in the mobile network and as a result, users will not buy new phones without 6G.
He also pointed out the current decline in the smartphone market and that there’s a large space left to be filled with innovation.
“Everyone still hopes that 6G will come, but whether it will come and when it will come, we still have to wait for the answer,” said Xu Zhijun.
For an expected timeline, Mr. Zhijun said that people waiting for 6G will have to wait, as it should come up by 2030. There’s a lot more to know about this new mobile network, as there are many countries that are still struggling with 5G installation.
