Huawei chairman: Trump is right, the US is losing the battle for 5G
America is losing the battle for 5G technology despite its attempts to block Huawei around the world, the Chinese company’s chairman has said.
Huawei rotating chairman Guo Ping told reporters he agreed with US President Donald Trump that the US was fast falling behind in the race to get the latest mobile network technology.
“The US is lagging behind,” Ping said. “His message is clear and correct.”
Speaking ahead of a major Huawei event at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, where the company unveiled an advanced 5G folding smartphone, Ping said Huawei could afford to ignore the US market.
He said the US appeared to be using its national power to “attack a company with advanced technology”.
Huawei has been accused of posing a security risk by US security services, but the US president appeared to leave the door open to Huawei on Thursday, before later saying he was still considering an executive ban on the company.
Trump said the US must catch up to launch 5G technology.
"American companies must step up their efforts, or get left behind. There is no reason that we should be lagging behind,” Trump said on Twitter.
Ping said Huawei would never install backdoor in its telecoms equipment, which is used in Europe by the likes of Vodafone and EE.
However, he also said Huawei “dare not” disobey national laws in China.
His remarks come as Huawei’s Consumer Business chief executive Richard Yu unveiled the company’s first folding 5G smartphone.
Yu said the phone, called the Huawei Mate X, would start at €2,299, making it one of the most expensive phones ever. It will be released later in 2019.
The phone unfolds from a 6.6-inch phone with an extra rear screen into an 8-inch tablet-like device, will feature the latest fast network technology and has a quadruple camera.
The phone will feature a Huawei-made Balong 5G chip, rather than a US made Qualcomm design.
Huawei has aimed to show its technology is outstripping that of US rivals like Apple on smartphone technology and telecoms rivals on its 5G capibilites.

apple and intel both have gotten too comfortable with having enjoyed such great success over the past decade+
Thank God we have competitions like Huawei to destroy big businesses from monopolizing innovations and advances.
Let Huawei 5G rule the entire world while America falls into the dark ages of 4G and even 2G, then all these big businesses like Sears Roebuck, Apple and IBM would either have to die, or compete.
In 20 years, the USA will be considered a third world country compared to China. They might have started by copying the tech of others, but now they've mastered improving that tech, and are leading the world in dozens of fields, like AI and quantum computing. They are graduating over 20 times the engineers that we are.

America becoming a 3rd world country, wake non tech nation, that’s why all the technology companies are hiring HB1 ‘s and not Americans )( lol �
This shows US supremacy in technology and production has been greatly eroded by rising powers such as China, Japan, India, South Korea, EU,...….

This is how much Trump is scared of a Chinese company Huawei, he forces the allies and together use mafioso tactics to ban Huawei in their markets. "Huawei beats American flagship Apple in smartphone sales for the first time. The Chinese smart phone maker sold around 54 million phones last quarter, up more than 40% compared to the same period last year, according to research firms IDC, Canalyst and IHS Markit. That was enough to not only beat Apple (AAPL), but also narrow the gap with market leader Samsung (SSNLF). Samsung sold more than 70 million phones last quarter, down about 10%from the same time last year. The continued growth of Huawei is impressive, to say the least, as is its ability to move into markets where, until recently, the brand was largely unknown," IDC analyst Ryan Reith said in a statement. Who needs the US? Huawei profits jump 28%!” On top, all consumers know that iPhones are "Expensive elepants without innovations". And, Huawei’s 5G prowess is so strong that it holds more than 35% of all 5G patents of the world!
这说明特朗普有多害怕华为这家中国公司，他迫使盟友们一起禁止华为进入他们的市场。华为的智能手机销量首次超过了美国苹果。研究公司IDC、Canalyst和IHS Markit的数据显示，这家中国智能手机制造商上季度销量约为5400万部，较去年同期增长40%以上。这不仅足以打败苹果，还能缩小与市场领头羊三星的差距。三星上个季度的手机销量超过7000万部，较去年同期下降了约10%。IDC分析师Ryan Reith在一份声明中称，"华为的持续发展令人印象深刻，其进军市场的能力也是如此。在此之前，华为这个品牌在很大程度上还不为人所知。"华为利润增长了28%!最重要的是，所有消费者都知道iphone是“没有创新的昂贵产品”。而且，华为5G技术的实力非常强大，拥有全球35%以上的5G专利!

Apple has run out of inspiration stock from Jobs' days, and now it just makes expensive, 2nd tier products to rip off money from US consumers. Trump is dead on accurate on the issue. If Apple cannot keep up with pace of technology inventions it will be abandoned eventually by consumers.
No wonder the U.S. is blocking the Huawei mobile phone in the United States, complained this and that, arrested the Huawei CFO etc... because they already produce 5G phone, but in the U.S. is still using 4G, We need to catch up, not falling behind.
There is great book: AI Superpowers: China, Silicon Valley, and the New World Order
There was an interview with an author of the book and he said that china is way more advanced than us when it comes to cell phone technology.

Nokia & Ericsson's 5G equipment is second tier to Huawei's in terms of performance & reliability.
Huawei is paying billions to acquire AI expertises, once Huawei achieves data superiority, it’s game over for USA. Seriously.

Who cares about tech we have the best Athletes and Entertainers which will make our country great.
Dems are doing their best to use pure propaganda for winning the 2020 election.
China will surpass us in every way within a decade. They are minting vast numbers of engineers every year and blanketing their country in high speed rail while everything about the USA is in decline except for our military spending. Our ruling class is giving themselves tax cuts while the rest of us peasants are living paycheck to paycheck. We are in the midst of the end of the American empire-oh, but at least we have a dozen pointless aircraft carrier battle groups.
combine china's technological rise and competitiveness in 5G and AI with Russia's American elections meddling, foreign agents in the USA, and compromising of an American President and you have the ingredients for the Fall of Rome 2.0.

China, S. Korea and Japan are passing the US and the EU techology-wise! FACT!
Now our politicians invent ways to ban them from our markets.NSA is watching EVERYbody in this world, not only Russia and China! So what spying concerns?
比技术，中国、韩国和日本正在超越美国和欧盟! 这是事实! 现在，我们的政客们应想出办法，禁止他们进入我们的市场。
6G network is already in use in parts of USA. All the hate based president bashing’s in the world cannot change that fact. Is Huawei seeking out these 6G networks?

Most likely technology originally stolen from the USA or develop by Chinese students given priority in our universities.

Huawei is banned in US due to its super-Superb 5G technology prowess. 5G speeds test results: Huawei - 18 Gbps, An American competitor 24.3 Mbps Huawei’s last quarter profit increased 28%, and 2018 revenue of over $100 billion. Huawei does not need US market
华为在美国因其高超的5G技术而被禁。5G网速测试结果:华为- 18 Gbps，美国竞争对手24.3 Mbps。华为上一季度利润增长28%，2018年营收超过1000亿美元，华为不需要美国市场。
We don't need Huawei. They steal technology and claim it as their own.
