The situation between Huawei and the us authorities continues to gain momentum. During an interview with CNBC journalists, Huawei founder and CEO Ren Zhengfei told what consequences Google can expect if the US does not lift the sanctions.
Earlier, the U.S. Department of Commerce included Huawei in the list of organizations that pose a threat to national security. Google, as required by law, has revoked Huawei's license to use the mobile operating system Android. Later, relations between the search giant and the Chinese Corporation began to improve, but Huawei actively began to prepare for a possible rejection of the "green robot".
During a conversation with CNBC reporters, Ren Zhengfei said that Google will lose 700-800 million users if Huawei is forced to abandon Android.
"Huawei and Google will always be on the same side of interests, but if we lose access to the Google system, it will lose 700-800 million users in the future," said the head of Huawei.
It is worth noting that at the conference for developers of I/O 2019 held in may this year, Google announced that more than 2.5 billion active devices are running the Android operating system worldwide. Therefore, the breakup with Huawei can deprive the search giant of about a third of users.
Earlier, Huawei CEO for consumer business Richard Yu said that they do not want to give up Android and will release its own operating system only as a last resort. According to available information, Huawei's HongMeng OS may be released before the end of the year. In addition, the Ministry of communications offered the Chinese company to use the Russian OS "Aurora".
