In a recent interview with CNN on December 26, Mr. Ren said that unlike Microsoft, Google does not have permission from the U.S. Department of Commerce to resume business with Huawei, which means that Huawei’s phones can only use its own eco-services. Mr Ren said Huawei was committed to the global supply chain. But to survive, Huawei also needs to be prepared to prevent U.S. companies from supplying them with parts.

“If the U.S. doesn’t allow its technology companies to provide our products, we have other options,” Ren stressed, adding, “If these options become mature and stable, I don’t think we’re likely to work with U.S. companies again.” “
Huawei’s latest flagship smartphone, the Mate 30 Series, does not include U.S. parts, according to a report by UBS and Fomalhaut Techno Solutions. Asked what would happen if Google didn’t get a license to work with Huawei, Mr Ren replied, “We have a very big Plan B”, adding that Huawei is determined and capable of becoming the world’s largest smartphone seller, but it will take some time. Huawei will return to overseas markets in 2020 and “I believe we can build our own global ecosystem in the next two to three years,” Mr. Ren said.
