Huawei has changed its strategy in the long-distance dispute against the United States government, and after claiming it can survive on its own even without Android and Google apps and services, the company now comes back to say that it actually hopes to continue working together with Google.
In an interview with Wired, Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei’s Consumer Business Group, emphasizes that Huawei has been one big money-making machine for Google, so it would be in the interest of the search giant as well for the two to continue their collaboration.
The United States government banned Huawei from using products developed by American companies, including Google, last May. Since then, however, Huawei officials said on several occasions the Chinese firm can survive on its own, revealing the company was working on its own operating system to replace Android.
