At Huawei Connect 2021, Eric Xu, Rotating Chairman of the company said in an interview with the media that HiSilicon, the Kirin chipmaker, is only a chip design department. He also mentioned that Huawei has no profit requirement from HiSilicon.
However, the Huawei chief also mentioned that the company will continue to support and raise its chip designing subsidiary and will also allow outstanding talents to join the company to prepare it for future ventures.
Xu further expressed that Huawei is currently aiming to survive in harsh conditions and we are now in a process of survival. Under this process, different companies have different choices and a large number of companies will choose to give and lay off employees. On the other hand, Huawei has its own approach.
Huawei wants to survive all of the outcomes and challenges. Therefore, it may face many technical outages and problems that need to be resolved, which requires top talents to overcome the difficulties.
So we are now spreading out hands and collecting the world’s top talents to join Huawei, and helps it solve as well as improve our overall strength in the survival process. This will all lead towards our prime goal.
Xu concluded its remarks by saying that our approach in this difficult time is different from other companies and we hope that Huawei achieves this path.
This is not the first time when the Huawei chief has come up with such remarks regarding the Kirin maker – HiSilicon. Back in April, during the Huawei Analyst Summit, Eric reiterated the same statement on the ground.
In June, HiSilicon started recruiting new talents that could further enhance the competitiveness of the company in various technologies and put the recruitment in the following categories:
The recruitment is currently underway and seemingly continues to move forward in this way.

Huawei and Oppo enters a major agreement for technology sharing
A cross-licensing agreement is a contract between two or more parties where each party grants rights to their intellectual property to the other parties.
This could be a major move for Huawei and Oppo, as they enrich the cooperation by supporting the innovation of technology using patents and investing more to improve them. Currently, there’s not much information revealed about the agreement.
However, we remain optimistic about the changes it could bring to the smartphone and tech industry.
“After more than 20 years of continuous innovation, Huawei has developed multiple high-value patent portfolios in the global marketplace in domains like 5G, Wi-Fi, and audio/video codecs,” said Alan Fan, Head of Huawei’s Intellectual Property Department. “We are delighted to have reached a cross-licensing agreement with OPPO. The mutual recognition of intellectual property value between companies is a major step towards fostering a positive cycle of innovation and research in high-value standards: investing, receiving returns from investment, and then reinvesting. This will enable our industry to keep innovating and provide consumers with more competitive products and services.”
“We are very pleased to enter into a patent cross-licensing agreement with Huawei. It clearly demonstrates that the two companies recognize and greatly respect the value of each other’s intellectual property. It is a win-win deal for both sides,” stated Adler Feng, OPPO’s Chief Intellectual Property Officer. “We will, as always, advocate for the establishment of a sustainable, healthy intellectual property ecosystem, where intellectual property licenses can be resolved through amicable negotiations and every company’s patent value are highly respected.”
