The news of HUAWEI's entry into the United States has been going on for a long time. HUAWEI, which is third of the world's share, has to do something in order to challenge the leading Samsung and apple and expand the new market.

This means that HUAWEI's efforts to march into the United States are all brewing, and the elaborate international strategy has been completely disrupted.
In today's CES speech, HUAWEI consumer business CEO Yu Chengdong is trying to restrain his emotions, but his dissatisfaction is still showing.
Although the cooperation failed, the content of the established speech could not be changed temporarily. Yu Chengdong still spent about an hour to introduce the Mate 10 Pro product to the American market.According to the live report of The Verge:
But near the end of the press conference, the slide behind Yu Chengdong turned into a simple word:
Yu Chengdong's mood is understandable, AT
Why does HUAWEI want to go to the United States to sell mobile phones so?
The news of HUAWEI's entry into the United States is like a soap opera, and the audience may be tired of it. In this case, you might want to ask why HUAWEI has to go to the United States to sell its mobile phone.
The biggest reason is that the low - and middle market competition is becoming more and more intense. In emerging markets like Southeast Asia, HUAWEI started a bit late. HUAWEI, which is better at the high-end machine, has a lot of space in the US market with stronger purchasing power.
In the third quarter of 2017, Apple took the lead in the U. S. mobile phone market, as shown in the chart above, and neither Samsung nor LG, the second and third places, are in the market.
Zaino public data show that in the same compared with developed Western European market, HUAWEI intelligent mobile phone share reached 11.6% in Finland, which accounted for 30% of the share, occupy 18.9% of the shares in Italy, accounting for 17.2% of the share in Czech, Hungary, Slovakia, etc.; 500~600 high-end smartphone market price of euro, HUAWEI share reached 14.3%. This performance is hopeful to continue in the US market.
HUAWEI's goal is to surpass apple and become the second largest mobile phone manufacturer in the world. (last year, it has been there for a short time). If there is no American market, HUAWEI will still have difficulty in pursuing apple at high and medium price products.
So, what is blocking HUAWEI's entry into the US market?
Is it really afraid of security or purely commercial sanctions?
As a century enterprise, the witness and leader of the modern communications industry, AT
According to an e-mail obtained by Tencent technology, 18 members of the United States sent a joint letter to Ajit Pai, chairman of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on 20 December 2017, asking FCC to investigate HUAWEI's cooperation with the US operators. The mail was also sent to the US Attorney General Jeff Sessions and others.
We have seen this play so many times that HUAWEI seems to be an imaginary enemy of the United States.
As early as 2003, when HUAWEI wanted to enter the American market, it was prosecuted by CISCO for a patent dispute and eventually failed to enter the American market. At the time, there had been news that there was a reason behind CISCO's lobbying for the US government.
In 2011, HUAWEI attempted to acquire 3Leaf from a server technology company in the United States. The censorship demanded that HUAWEI must abandon the 3Leaf that had been acquired by the server technology company. Otherwise, it would advise President Obama to cancel the purchase.
In October 8, 2012, the intelligence committee of the house of Representatives issued an investigation report that the equipment of HUAWEI technology limited and Zte Corp could be used to spy on the American people and pose a threat to the national security of the United States. The report suggests that the US government should avoid using the equipment of the two companies, and the US enterprises should also look for alternative telecom equipment suppliers that HUAWEI and ZTE will replace.
In March 2016 and June, ZTE and HUAWEI were subsumed by the United States, and the United States even prohibited domestic chip companies from trading with ZTE.
The reason is that the core business of HUAWEI is to make basic communication facilities. In the US, it may be related to national information security, and Ren Zhengfei's background of military industry is quite sensitive in the US.
In addition to security, there's also something behind it.
Under such protectionism, local American rivals would even lobby the government to give Huawei the credit
But now, China has already overtaken the United States as the world's largest smartphone market, and even the second place has been snatched by India. Although losing the U.S. market would be a big loss, it would not be fatal. China's smartphone industry will continue to flourish. That's why Yu Chengdong has the confidence to cry out
In addition, this cooperation means that HUAWEI can not be canceled, only through the sale of mobile phone operator channel, in the Amazon, best buy and other electronic business platform can still sell mobile phone products, but the electricity supplier in the U.S. mobile phone market share is very small (the channel operators can account for close to 90%).
HUAWEI crashed just a microcosm of this situation in a short time is difficult to change. It is still difficult for Chinese companies like HUAWEI to enter the United States.
