Do you think it would take a miracle? Huawei to come back? No, I seriously don’t think so! Indeed, the US ban has really hurt the Chinese phone maker a lot. However, looking more closely at the scale of the ban, things could have been worse if it happened to another company. Huawei’s very survival proves how strong the company is, and the ban seems to have made the company even stronger.
So, if Huawei has not given up on its smartphone business even after these numerous bans from the United States, then what is really driving the company? This is mainly because Huawei has a plan for the future, a vision that only a few can see. That’s why the company still makes phones every year. The ban on Huawei means not only the absence of Google Mobile Services, but also hardware components. But Huawei seems determined to survive it all.
The company has already come up with its own mobile services to replace GMS, and a new report also says the Chinese tech giant has replaced more than 13,000 parts across all its products that were hit by the US sanctions. This statement came from Huawei CEO Ren Junfei.
Huawei replaced most American components
Shanghai Jiao Tong University published a transcript of Ren’s speech. In his speech, he said that in the past three years, Huawei has replaced more than 13,000 of its product components with home-made components. The company has also redesigned 4,000 boards for its own products.

According to the university, Ren made the speech on February 24 when he spoke to Chinese technology experts. The university posted a transcript of his speech on its website Friday.
Ren also said that Huawei has invested an amount of US$23.8 billion in research and development in 2022. The company will continue to invest more money in research and development as profit increases, Ren added.
Huawei has also built its own enterprise resource planning system, according to Ren. This system is called MetaERP, which the company plans to launch in April. This system will help manage the company’s core business functions, supply chain and manufacturing operations.
Huawei has no plans to compete with ChatGPT
Ren also said that Huawei has no plans to launch a competing system of AI tools such as ChatGPT. However, he said that Microsoft, the biggest investor in OpenAI, will not be the only dominant force in this category. However, Huawei will focus on being the main platform that powers AI.
