The CEO of Huawei, Richard Yu has a reputation for being outspoken at times. He seems to be keen to hold on to that tag as he has formally announced the company’s intentions to go mainstream in the U.S. markets. As of now, only the Huawei Ascend Mate 2 is officially available for purchase in the country while the flagship offerings from the manufacturer are missing from the list. We can expect that to change over the coming months though.

Yu said – “In the future, our main competition will be from Western companies, not Chinese companies,” implying that it doesn’t expect the Chinese OEMs to remain competitive in the mobile market for long. He also said – “Most Chinese smartphone vendors will disappear in the next three to five years, and we’ll be the leading ones.”

These are not surprising words coming from the third largest smartphone seller in the world. The company sold 74 million smartphones in 2014 and targets to sell 100 million this year.
