Ever since the US President Donald Trump declared trade war with China and many other countries, like many people, I have seen so many articles and videos regarding this issue.
By deciding against a single telecommunications standard, the US fragmented its telecoms industry and has no 5G contender today. The fastest supercomputer, the largest radio telescope and the first landing on the dark side of the moon are other feathers in the Chinese cap.
China’s tech progress has already passed a turning point, its size grants it unusual abilities and its population is conditioned to be entrepreneurial; the trade war cannot derail China’s progress and development.
U.S. companies began complying with a White House order to
curb sales to Chinese telecom giant Huawei. Google said it
would restrict Huawei’s access to future updates of its Android
operating software, which powers many of Huawei’s phones.
Other U.S. manufacturers also began suspending business
dealings with the Chinese firm.
In view of the restriction, Huawei is starting to use its own operating system (OS) called “Hongmeng” which is 60% faster than Android.
The Chinese Vivo and OPPO have tested the new Android alternative and they intend to use it in some of their upcoming devices. With its own operating system, Huawei does not need Android anymore.
First, China has already reached and passed its critical mass in technological capacity. It has moved from imitator to innovator, and become a world leader in areas such as solar energy, mobile payments and high-speed rail.
Second, the size of the Chinese domestic market provides important advantages when it comes to innovation.
Inside Huawei’s secret research HQ, China is shaping a future that’s less reliant on U.S. tech.
Inside Huawei’s Shenzhen headquarters, a secretive group of engineers is toiling away heedless to such risks. They are working on what is next — a raft of artificial intelligence, cloud-computing and chip technology crucial to China’s national priorities and Huawei’s future. As the trade war drags on, China’s government has pushed to create an industry that is less dependent on cutting-edge U.S. semiconductors and software.
The company is investing massive resources in next- generation technology, seeking to replicate the success it has had in other areas. Over the past decade, the closely held firm has quietly emerged as a titan in networking and telecom gear, now second only to San Jose, California-based Cisco Systems Inc. Then Huawei entered the smartphone market, and in a surprise to most observers toppled Apple Inc. in market share earlier this year.
Huawei’s technical expertise, combined with its ties to China’s blue-chip firms and government, could let it engineer another surprise in what many see as the critical backbone of future have technology.
I come to the conclusion that Trump is a big bully.
