On April 12, Huawei’s 18th global analyst conference opened in Shenzhen. Xu Zhijun, chairman of Huawei, responded to some questions about Huawei’s chip, automobile and 5g businesses. He said that Huawei’s goal this year is to survive, but he hopes to live better.
In recent years, cross industry car building enterprises have sprung up. A few days ago, Xiaomi officially announced the car building plan. At this conference, Xu Zhijun once again made clear Huawei’s position of not building cars, and disclosed that Huawei has cooperated with automobile manufacturers in three sub brands, “including arcfox of BAIC, two sub brands of Chongqing Changan and GAC, whose names have not yet been figured out. There are not many brands that Huawei will cooperate with, and a series of new cars will be launched at the end of this year.”.
“We also designed the brand of” Huawei inside “. When you see the brand on the car, you will know that Huawei is involved. Not all cooperative cars will have this logo. Only cars that use Huawei’s automatic driving technology will have this logo. ” Mr. Xu said Huawei will invest more than $1 billion in its smart car business this year.
The Internet of things represented by smart cars is replacing the era of mobile Internet represented by mobile phones, which will create more and larger ways and spaces of life and entertainment, and it is natural for Chejia Zhilian. In the view of industry observer Hong Shibin, whether it’s the research of vehicle system or the production of cars, manufacturers are interested in this market full of development potential.
As for the chip issue that the industry pays more attention to, Xu Zhijun said that all customers around the world are sweating for Huawei now. How many chips does Huawei have in stock. “First, Huawei’s inventory can support the company to live longer. In addition, Huawei is a big semiconductor purchasing enterprise, and China is a huge chip market. Many Chinese enterprises may worry that they will be like Huawei in the future. With such a large demand, I believe that some enterprises will invest to find a way to meet the needs of Huawei and other domestic enterprises in the chip field. I believe that day will come. “
Since the beginning of this year, from time to time, news of global “core shortage” has spread, and mobile phone, automobile and other industries are facing this dilemma. In this regard, Xu Zhijun stressed that the US sanctions against Huawei caused panic stock of global enterprises, which is an important reason for the tight supply and shortage of the semiconductor industry this year, and called on the global semiconductor industry to resume normal cooperation as soon as possible.
As for Hisilicon, Huawei’s chip R & D company, Xu Zhijun said frankly that there is no place to process any chips of Hisilicon, and there is no profit at present. Huawei has no demand for profit, but it will always support the development of this team. This team can continue to do research, continue to develop and accumulate, and make some preparations for the future.
On the 5g business, Xu Wenwei, director of Huawei and President of the Strategic Research Institute, said that although 5g has been put into commercial use, the current development of 5g is far from meeting the needs of communication. He predicted that in the next decade, the number of links will reach 100 billion, and the computing power and storage will be improved 100 times. 5g not only links everyone, but also links massive objects. The three scenes defined by 5g now are difficult to meet the existing needs, and need to change from the triangle of the three scenes to the hexagon of “5.5G”.
In the future, Huawei will increase its 5g to C efforts to help it carry more traffic and improve its solutions. Huawei has participated in more than 3000 innovative projects around the world and signed more than 1000 5g to B cooperation in 20 industries. On the other hand, Huawei hopes to define “5.5G” well, expand uplink ultra bandwidth on the basis of 5g, realize real-time broadband communication, and further enhance 5g integrated communication and perception ability.
Xu Zhijun also said that 6G is expected to be put on the market around 2030, and Huawei will also issue a 6G white paper to tell all walks of life what 6G is. “Huawei is currently doing two aspects of work. One is to work with the industry to define what 6G is. At the same time, Huawei is also doing some basic research around 6G.
