Huawei Focuses on 4G to Endure Until 5G Kicks In
In the last Huawei Analyst Summit, Eric Xu, rotating chairman of the Huawei board (previously rotating CEO) presented about Huawei’s performance and market strategy. Contrary to competitors’ CEOs, Xu mostly talked about 4G rather than 5G, and when he was asked why, he answered that 5G will be a small evolution from 4G. Why does Huawei focus more on 4G at a time when all competing vendors—and the rest of the industry—are focusing on 5G? As we will discuss below, this is a combination of technology, politics, and market position for Huawei.
