Huawei expects full-year sales of more than 850 billion yuan, up about 18 percent from a year earlier, Xu said. Although did not meet expectations at the beginning of the year, but the company’s overall operation is sound, basically withstood the test.
The “report card” of Huawei’s mobile phone, which detonates the trend of smart terminals, is even more striking: more than 240 million units shipped!
In 2019, Huawei is a very extraordinary year: from the arrest of Meng’s arrest and continued fermentation, the implementation of the “physical list” by the United States and the launch of the siege, to the 5G breakthrough, the appearance of the Harmony system, as well as the millions of recruiters and former employees 251 events, Huawei is always in the public opinion of Huawei, resisting the pressure of survival , but also with high-growth excellent performance to the peripheral people a hard slap.
Annual sales revenue estimated at $850 billion
This morning, on the last day of 2019, Huawei announced a big announcement.
Huawei Voice Community Officer Micro released Huawei’s New Year’s Message for Huawei’s 2020 New Year’ Chairman Xu Zhijun: Survive, Seek Development, And Forge Ahead.
In his speech, Xu made it clear that in 2019, sales revenue is expected to exceed 850 billion yuan (about 122 billion U.S. dollars), up about 18% year-on-year. Although did not meet expectations at the beginning of the year, but the company’s overall operation is sound, basically withstood the test. Among them, the smartphone business maintained solid growth, with shipments exceeding 240 million units.
Huawei’s revenue rose 24.4% year-on-year to RMB610.8 billion in the third quarter of 2019, according to Huawei’s previously released data.
As a leader in the 5G industry, Huawei is faster in the carrier business process and leads the world. Xu said Huawei’s enterprise business has helped customers build a digital transformation base, with more than 700 cities and 228 of the world’s top 500 companies choosing Huawei as their digital transformation partner. At the same time, Huawei has for the first time launched its computing industry strategy, launching the world’s fastest 910 AI processor and AI cluster training service.
Huawei, which released several burst swords this year, is even more impressive in its smart terminal business. It is reported that the smartphone business has maintained steady growth, with shipments of more than 240 million units, and the whole-scene intellectual ecological layout of consumer-centered, such as PCs, tablets, smart wearables and smart screens, has been further improved.
“Digital technology is reshaping the world, and we want to benefit everyone and ensure full digital inclusion,” Mr Xu said. With the mature commercialization of new technologies such as 5G, cloud computing, AI, and blockchain, digitalization in the industry is entering a period of rapid development with great potential. But the external environment is more complex, the downward pressure on the world economy increases, we will be long-term in the United States on the leading technology continued to suppress the adversity to survive and seek development. “
For the development of 2020, Xu pointed out that the future will still be a difficult year for Huawei, Huawei continues to be under the “entity list”, without the rapid growth in the first half of 2019 and the second half of the market inertia, in addition to their own struggle, the only thing that can rely on the trust and support of customers and partners is the trust and support of customers and partners. “Survival is our first priority, we must continue to adhere to customer-centric, striving-oriented, continue to create value for customers, focus on maintaining growth, promotion capacity, excellent organization, risk control.” “
In terms of performance growth, Huawei proposed that operators’ businesses should actively promote global 5G development, seize the network construction opportunities brought about by 5G development, make every effort to build the HMS ecosystem, support the overseas sales of smartphones, and promote innovation of application partners. 2020 to be based on the Peng peng and Teng processor products as an important growth direction.
Xu said that for the future, the supply chain should firmly embrace globalization, including U.S. companies, with products in the global industrial chain to build our competitiveness. Huawei not only needs to build the world’s leading products, but also “root down” to build continuous supply, and at the same time, “up to the sky”, with theoretical breakthroughs, technological inventions, pioneering products and business models. In addition, Huawei will continue to enhance its software engineering capabilities and continue to implement a five-year, $2 billion investment to build credible, high-quality products and solutions.
Ren Zhengfei: 2020 will be the year to decide Huawei’s fate
“Trump’s crackdown makes the world famous”
Just a few days ago, Huawei’s Voice Community released an interview with the Los Angeles Times that also addressed expectations and outlooks for 2020 results.

Mr Ren said 2020 would be the year to determine Huawei’s fate, and there would be a certain scale of development that would make the world know that Huawei would survive very well under strong US sanctions.
“Huawei’s performance should still grow in 2020, but not too high, ” he predicts. Growth has fallen to 17% in October and is expected to be around 10% in 2020, which is probably the lowest estimate, and perhaps better. “
“We may start to grow at scale in 2021, but the senior team believes that there is a disagreement between me and the senior team to restore scale growth in 2022, ” Mr Ren said. I think they’re thinking more conservatively, so the document I’m issuing is to predict that the growth will start on a large scale in 2022. “
In the interview, Mr. Ren also said the U.S. crackdown on Huawei had alarmed the company, which has cut 48 percent of its research and development systems and closed 46 percent of unnecessary research.
It is reported that after the reconstruction, Huawei reduced its organization by 48%, closed 46% of unnecessary product development, transferred the saved engineers to the main waterway product sand field, and enhanced the research and development capabilities of the main waterway products, so the competitiveness of Huawei’s main waterway products in the world has been further enhanced.
In response to a reporter’s question about “whether the U.S. crackdown will allow Huawei to focus on the opportunities in the domestic market,” Ren Zhengfei replied that because of Trump’s crackdown, we have a reputation around the world, and customers around the world have greatly increased their enthusiasm to buy our products. We will always be global companies, capable of competing around the world, so we will not give up globalization.
Huawei 2019 Inventory
From Sanctions to Harmony: Development in Contradictions
In fact, Huawei has faced the most conflictanding and controversial year in its history this year, with the arrest of Meng Nightzhou, the daughter of Mr. Ren and Huawei’s chief financial officer, in Canada, and the continued increase in crackdowns and restrictions from the United States. Subsequently, the global siege of Huawei began, Huawei experienced an unprecedented ordeal.
Today, a year, Huawei “chip spare tire” full-scale correction, mobile phone shipments of more than 240 million, 5G process pace accelerated, Harmony system officially landed, a number of key areas of technology smooth, the position of global communications equipment suppliers has not been too shaken, and gave more than 850 billion annual results. At the same time, the million-dollar hiring program, the 251-year-old ex-employee incident and the massive layoffs have made Huawei’s “wolf culture” hot for public opinion.
What kind of Huawei do we see in 2019? Fund Jun also made a small inventory here.
1, Meng Night boat arrest incident continues to ferment
In December, Meng Eveningboat, Huawei’s vice chairman and chief financial officer, was detained in Canada, a flashpoint in the U.S. blockade of Huawei and a landmark event in global trade tensions. For a whole year, Meng’s personal fate was tightly tied to Huawei’s situation.
In January this year, Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang responded to the Meng evening boat case by saying that China has repeatedly stated its solemn position that the abuse of bilateral extradition jumps by the United States and Canada and the unjustified coercive measures against Chinese citizens constitute a serious violation of the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese citizens. Urging the United States to immediately revoke the arrest warrant for Ms. Meng and refrain from issuing a formal extradition request, and urging Canada to certify China’s solemn stance, immediately release Ms. Meng and effectively safeguard her legitimate and legitimate rights and interests.
In April, Mr. Ren said in an interview that Huawei had suffered a short setback in Europe because of U.S. pressure, but had not affected huawei’s development. For the Meng evening boat incident, I believe that the judicial process can solve this problem.
In October, Ren Zhengfei’s 75th birthday, Meng sent a message of congratulations to friends and said “wait for me to come back” and in the photos she posted, still wearing electronic shackles around her ankles. For a moment, Ren Zhengfei and Meng night boat news boarded the hot search.
In December, Mr Ren spoke out about the Meng evening boat incident, saying it was a political action plan by the US and used it as a bargaining chip to crack down on Huawei, with the ultimate goal of eliminating huawei.
2, Huawei is included in the U.S. “entity list”
Meng’s arrest was only the beginning, and the subsequent announcement by the United States of a “ban” on China also opened up the U.S. campaign against Huawei’s limits. Under the influence of the U.S. government, several Western countries began a campaign to “encircle” Huawei, cutting off all cooperation with Huawei.
On May 16, U.S. President Donald Trump signed an executive order requiring the United States to enter a “state of emergency” in which U.S. businesses are prohibited from using telecommunications equipment produced by businesses that pose a risk to national security. On the same day, the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security added Huawei to its so-called “entity list” and U.S. companies will not be allowed to supply Huawei without the u.S. government’s permission.
In a short period of time, Huawei’s U.S. suppliers, Vtech, Intel, etc., have blocked Huawei devices in accordance with the ban, and all Parties in the U.S. have completely cut off supplies from basic components, storage, chips to operating systems. Immediately, Huawei declared a wartime state.
Subsequently, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Japan have joined the “surrounding” Huawei action, citing national security risks to deny Huawei equipment into the domestic market. The alliance of Huawei’s global partners is beginning to split.
However, U.S. restrictions on Huawei were used as a bargaining chip, and as China-U.S. relations changed, the U.S. Commerce Department extended Huawei’s ban on Three consecutive “temporary general permits” on May 20, August 19 and November 19.
In response, Ren Zhengfei in October in an interview with CNBC and other media, said that has been ready for the long-term entity list can not be revoked. Huawei is still open-minded and wants to push globalization forward. If the ban is open, Huawei will still accept U.S. products.
3, Huawei “spare tire chip” full-scale positive
Of course, Huawei launched its first counter-attack when the U.S. imposed extreme repression of China, the most important of which was the launch of a “spare tire” program.
On May 17th, at 2 a.m., He Tingbo, president of Huawei Heath, sent an e-mailed letter to employees saying that many years ago, the company had made the assumption of extreme survival, and that all advanced chips and technologies in the United States would one day be out of reach, and Huawei would continue to serve its customers.
The e-mail mentioned that, in order to assume that it would never happen, HiSilicon embarked on the most tragic long march in the history of science and technology, creating a “spare tire” for the company’s survival. The superpowers put Huawei on a list of entities without any basis. “Today, it’s the choice of history, all the spares we’ve built, all turned ‘positive’ overnight!”
The mail also mentioned that the way ahead, there will be another decade to build spare tire and then change the tire, the buffer zone has disappeared, every new product born, will have to synchronize the “technological self-reliance” program.
The internal letter out, the explosion of the whole network. Netizens have cheered huawei: “the bottom of the strength, far-sighted Huawei, worthy of respect”, “gu an is safe, ambitious.”
The day before, Huawei’s president’s office also issued a letter to employees saying that many years ago, the U.S. had expected a crackdown, difficulties can not stop the pace. Huawei has anticipated the sudden ban years ago, and has made a lot of investment and preparation in research and development, business continuity, etc., to ensure that in extreme cases, the company’s operations are not greatly affected.
4, Huawei Harmony system “out of the sky”
Huawei’s self-study operating system has also landed fast this year to fend off a full-scale siege from the peripheral markets.

It is reported that the application date of “Huawei Harmony” is August 24, 2018, the registration announcement date is May 14, 2019, and the special permission period is from May 14, 2019 to May 13, 2029.

Yu also announced that HarmonyOS will be open source. will be compatible with Linux, Unix and Android.
In addition, Huawei has announced the evolution of the Harmony kernel and OS, which will be the first to use Harmony OS 1.0 in this year’s first smart screen product. In the next three years, in addition to improving the technology, HarmonyOS will be gradually used in wearables, smart screens, locomotives and more smart devices.
Regarding the use of mobile operating system, Yu Chengdong said, “We give priority to Android, but if not later, Harmony is ready to use.” “

For Huawei today, internal and external tensions have intensified, talent has become an important support for its rapid development, and Huawei’s recruitment of talent this year is unprecedented.

8, Huawei commented on the former employee “251 incident”
It is worth noting that behind this year’s external US repression and the rapid growth within Huawei, Huawei’s “wolf culture” has been praised and controversial.
Towards the end of the year, a former Huawei employee was detained for 251 days of fermentation throughout the network, let a segment suddenly brush the screen, “born 985, work 996, leave 251, rights 404.” “
It is understood that after 12 years of work at Huawei, former employee Li Hongyuan left the company to report extortion, in the Public Security Bureau detention for 251 days, was acquitted, and received 100,000 yuan in state compensation. The issue has been fermenting on the Internet, and there have been public comments against Huawei.
On the evening of December 2, Huawei responded: “Huawei has the right and obligation to report suspected violations to the judiciary based on facts.” We respect the decisions of the judiciary, including the public security, the public prosecutor’s office and the courts. If Mr. Li believes that his rights have been compromised, we support him in using legal weapons to defend his rights, including suing Huawei. This also reflects the spirit of the rule of law, which is equal before the law. “
The response, public opinion quickly to China’s good feelings reduced, many netizens comment son also appeared a large rollover scene. Some netizens think, “You talk to him about the law, he plays hooligans with you; “
The case has also caused widespread debate after it was reported in the media. Hu Xijin, editor-in-chief of the Global Times, tweeted that he supported the matter as a more fair, reasonable and temperature-based solution. At the same time, it is not rational and realistic to not advocate that this matter should be put on the line too much, and that it will be used to make a moral denial of Huawei as a whole. At the same time, he also called on Huawei to respond as soon as possible, to give public opinion a statement.
