$2.5 billion order diversion
"We are deeply sorry about the recent trade situation that has a strong relationship with our important customer Huawei. Although Huawei's demand for our services has been rapidly decreasing, we still hope and expect the two sides to continue constructive cooperation in the future. "On August 8, Flextronics China is officialWeiboAn open letter was issued in response to the issue of “detaining Huawei supplies”.
A few days before Flextronics responded, Huawei sent a letter to the company asking him to pay “100 million yuan” for losses, such as lost work, material waste, and equipment replacement. The lawyer wrote that after Washington issued a Huawei ban in May this year, Flextronics’ Chinese subsidiary “disregarded Chinese law” and refused to return Huawei’s production equipment, raw materials and semi-finished products at its Zhuhai plant, worth about 400 million yuan. Renminbi.
Flextronics insiders told the media that some of the equipment was detained because Huawei had defaulted on its more than one billion accounts payable. However, a Huawei supplier who did not want to be named said to reporters: "Huawei's account period is relatively long among customers, but it is an excuse to detain customer equipment for this reason."
"We can't understand why their Chinese factory confiscated our goods, which is an over-interpretation of the US ban," said Guo Fulin, director of Huawei's international media affairs department.
At present, Huawei has removed Flextronics from the supply chain system, and the latest quarterly financial report shows that Flextronics achieved revenue of approximately US$6.2 billion in the quarter, down 3% year-on-year; net profit was approximately US$45 million, compared with US$116 million in the same period last year. The ratio is significantly reduced by 61.2%. The reporter learned that last year, Flextronics received about $2.5 billion in revenue from Huawei, and this part of the order has begun to flow to other foundries.

Self-built factory VS foundry factory
In addition to the adjustment of mobile phone OEM business orders, Huawei's pace in mobile phone self-built factories is also accelerating.
According to local media reports in Brazil, Huawei plans to invest 800 million US dollars in a mobile phone factory in Sao Paulo, Brazil in the next three years, and intends to manufacture 5G smart phones in the new factory for the South American market. In May of this year, Huawei launched the P30 series of mobile phones in Brazil and hired Brazilian employees to manage the business.
Louis Paulino, a professor at the School of philosophy and Science at S ã o Paulo State University in Brazil and an expert on China, told Xinhua earlier that Brazil had no reason to reject Huawei. He said that almost all telecommunications companies in Brazil are currently upgrading network technology, especially in many of Brazil's major cities, 5G technology will be an important tool to improve urban management and provide citizens with more convenience and security.
In addition, another reason for attracting Huawei to set up a local factory is that the Brazilian smartphone market is still growing rapidly.
According to the reporter, Brazil in South America is the fourth largest smartphone market in the world. According to IDC analysis, the sales of Brazilian smartphones will increase by 18% in 2019, reaching 24.5 billion US dollars. The smartphone business will become Brazil's information and communication. The main growth areas of the technology industry.

There are about 40 to 50 million sales space each year. "This market is big enough to mean that the cake is enough to eat. Brazil is also a country that is still growing in a few large markets." Yan Zhanmeng told reporters.
He said that the highest-selling mobile phone in Brazil isSamsungHowever, Huawei ranked second. And because Brazil imposes heavy taxes on imported mobile phones, many smartphone manufacturers choose to set up factories in Brazil. With the growth of Huawei's mobile phone sales in Brazil, it is expected to set up factories. “The local factory has helped solve logistics, IT systems and security, and Brazil is an open market, which is more suitable for big brand development channels.”
Currently, Samsung,LGThey all set up factories in Brazil to produce mobile phones.
After kicking Flextronics out of the supply chain list, whether Huawei will speed up the pace of self-built factories, Yan Zhanmeng said that "it is possible", but from the perspective of Huawei's global mobile phone supply chain system, the choice of foundry cooperation is still the mainstream. "This time, the establishment of a factory in Brazil is mainly a tax consideration." An insider told Huawei.
At the previous developer conference, Yu Chengdong told reporters: "(The work of Flextronics will definitely have an impact on Huawei), and partners should not do this. This practice is also harmful to themselves." But in the view of Yu Chengdong, currently Huawei’s more important task is toWindowsThe loopholes in the ecology and Android ecosystem are patched up.
"In the past, we were trying to make a small amount of money. Now we are trying to beat the United States. We must have great ambitions, accommodate the talents of the world, and fight together." Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei handed over "a lot of holes in the CBG department on July 31." The rotten Il 2 aircraft "at the handover ceremony of the battle flag said that the ecological construction is not a matter of overnight, and we must be prepared for the "Long March".
