Currently, Huawei is included in the black list of the US due to fears and suspicions of the American government. But what if Xiaomi will also be added to the sanctions list? How will the company react? During a recent interview with the product Manager, Xiaomi Th abi (Abi Go) touched on several interesting topics, including banning from the United States.
Xiaomi claims that it is ready for a possible ban by the us government. Senior management stated that a portion of the proceeds the company focuses on the production and semiconductor companies to create a network that will be able to produce smartphones, without relying on the help of American companies. Xiaomi, seemingly, is not afraid will happen if «the worst».
«We are now assessing the situation. But at the moment not much any «contagion effect». In fact, we have been working side by side with American companies such as Qualcomm, chip or Google in the field of our products to the ecosystem of the Internet of things,» said head.
«In any case, if in the future something happens, we have a «plan B». Among other things, we invest a lot in the few semiconductor manufacturers in China. But we believe that our business strategy should not be due ??the decisions of politicians. We decided to integrate the best components into our products. In addition, we are going to continue to do so in the future.
We believe that is really important is our desire to give the maximum without worrying about what your competitors are doing. We believe that having competitors is good, because they force us to try our best. Our strategy is to do what we think is right, and to do as well», — said the representative of Xiaomi.
Xiaomi has released its own single-chip system Surge S1 in 2017 and since then worked on Surge S2, though it does not put chip on the market.
