HiSilicon, the Kirin chip designing unit of Huawei, can design new chipsets but cannot print them, which led to the shortage of required mobile chipset. However, Huawei’s rotating chairman – Guo Ping said that the company will establish its chipset industry supply chain.

During a meeting with employees, the top Huawei official spoke about the company’s current difficulties and issues and addressed them to the concerned people.

Guo said that Huawei is continuously investing in chipset and chipset-related developments. The 2012 Chip laboratory has contributed greatly to increase Huawei’s competitiveness in the past 20 years.

“No matter how much difficulties Huawei encounters, we will continue to invest,” said Guo Ping

U.S. Ban:

Back in May 2019, Huawei was added to the U.S. Entity List, which prohibits the company from accessing American-made goods and technologies including the use of chipsets.

Following the U.S. sanctions, Huawei phones face severe technology supplies issues. Aside from the required sub-components, the Chinese tech maker can design chipsets but it cannot print them on the face of the U.S. ban.

How to solve the chip issue?

According to Ping, Huawei will use its own experience to help partners in the industry to enhance their own capabilities and break through the obstacles for others to establish a reliable supply chain.

More interestingly, the Huawei head said that the company will use all of its strength to help its partners help itself. It’s believed that in the future, Huawei will not only be able to design and build new chipsets but also lead in the chipset industry.

Will not give up on smartphone business:

Furthermore, the rotating chairman accepted that there are some issues with the current Kirin chip supply but Huawei will not give up on its smartphone business and will claim the throne of number one smartphone maker.

Huawei will also enhance its smartphone manufacturing capabilities and efficiency to make a better product and present it to the consumers.
