Amid US efforts to isolate the company, Huawei has benefited from new 5G contracts and millions of smartphone sales. But the company's chairman made clear that it "may affect the pace of our growth in the short term."
The Chinese tech giant Huawei has unveiled a new operating system, HarmonyOS, which the company hopes will become an alternative to Android. But convincing customers to opt for the new platform may prove a daunting task.
Trump has lifted his trade ban on Huawei, but that won't keep the tech giant from trying to become as independent as possible. The move plays into the hands of Chinese tech and does the US no favors, says Frank Sieren.
