The company was born with an investment of only $5,600. The company started as a telecommunications operator.

It has a Kirin 970 processor, the first chip with artificial intelligence is the exclusive property of the company. This processor seeks to optimize system resources, ensure more efficient battery consumption, recognize images or offer real-time responses.
Thus, Huawei has become a reference in the technological world and the Smartphone. This year there have been several launches of new devices, which aim to meet the high expectations of consumers.
UNITED STATES AGAINST HUAWEI
The panic has spread to millions of Huawei cell phone owners who are going through a moment of uncertainty after the announcement issued by Google that indicates they will not continue providing their software to the Chinese company, on the express orders of the president of the United States. This is part of a so-called Cold War of telecommunications: Huawei was included in the US blacklist considering it as a danger to society.
So, the executive order issued by the president of the United States, Donald Trump is: do not sell component or software to Huawei. At the moment, Google is working on the details and implications of such an act and will continue to offer the Android experience without restrictions, including access to the Google app store. In the short term, Huawei seeks to support users’ applications and operating systems.
Huawei said they work on their operating system, based on a public version of Android and is already available in the Chinese market (cell phones use a highly modified Android system and do not have Google applications). The next generation of phones is expected to have this operating system. This could have a great impact because users tend to lean towards the operating system rather than the brand of the phone when buying. It will take an incredible device that surplus the services of Google Maps, Google Mail, Google Chrome and other Google Play apps. But, the challenge can be positive.
