U.S. Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo concluded her four-day trip to China on August 8, saying she left China with optimism. The outside world generally believes that Raimondo's behavior is to ease the tense Sino-US relations, or to pave the way for the APEC "Xi visit" expected by the United States in November. However, the day before Raimondo left China, Huawei launched the sale of Mate 30 Pro without warning, and its symbolic technological breakthrough and geopolitical implications may make Raimondo have mixed tastes.
Huawei Mate 60 Pro new machine was originally scheduled to hold a press conference on September 9 to fight against Apple's iPhone 12, but now without any wind leakage, it has been advanced to August 15. Many people in the mainland Internet public opinion field believe that they are going for Raimondo, and the discussion about the machine on overseas social platforms is also quite hot.
The reason why Huawei's new machine gives people a feeling of "surprise attack" Raimondo may come from its origin. On January 2011, 1, then-U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates visited China, similar to this time Raimondo, he set foot on China with a proud attitude and in the name of breaking the ice. The day before he left China (January 9, 2011), China deployed the Flying J-1 stealth fighter without warning. Years later, Gates published his memoir, "Duty," and did not forget to write a note about China's "Xia Mawei".

No matter whether Huawei's release of the new machine really left a deep memory for Raimondo, behind Raimondo's optimistic attitude, it still gives people a feeling of arrogance. She stressed that "the measures taken by the United States are based on its national security, there is no room for debate or compromise, and this is not the scope of discussion between the two sides", implying that there is no room for negotiation between China and technology sanctions, including Huawei.
Before her visit to China, the minister, who sent more than 200 Chinese companies to the US Department of Commerce blacklist, publicly pointed at Huawei and said: "The United States will never allow China's Huawei to continue to develop its own high-tech industrial line, and will take action, including commercial sanctions, when it finds that Huawei has upgraded its high-tech." The United States has demanded that its allies stop using Huawei technology devices and have been sanctioned at Huawei."
Therefore, Huawei issued a "letter to Huawei users" at this moment, which really gives people full space for association. You know, the United States launched a "technology war" against China, Huawei is the first Chinese company, Meng Wanzhou was "house arrested" for three years, which is even more important for Chinese. On May 2019, 5, Huawei and its subsidiaries were placed on the "Entity List" of export control by the then Donald Trump administration, meaning that unauthorized US companies were not allowed to sell products and technologies to Huawei, and Huawei was subsequently subjected to three consecutive rounds of US sanctions in 16.

Among them, the most notable is China's chip manufacturing capabilities, can break the "stuck neck" of the United States? Although the Mate 60 Pro new machine officially disclosed detailed specifications for the time being, through the actual measurement of netizens, its network speed has reached the same standard as 5G, which makes many people extremely excited. A photo circulated on the Internet, in the past, Mate 40 used the Kirin 9000 chip manufactured by TSMC, and now Mate 60 Pro is equipped with the Kirin 9000S chip written "CN" (made in China), plus the self-developed Taishan CPU, and the Harmony operating system, "Kirin Return" represents the following two great significances:
1. This is the first mobile phone with completely independent intellectual property rights in China.
2. It means the failure of the United States to comprehensively strangle and blockade Chinese science and technology.
At the same time, Mate 60 Pro is also the first mobile phone equipped with satellite phone function, using the second generation of Beidou satellite communication technology, with voice communication function and two-way transmission SMS function. Experts believe that this "sky-breaking" technological innovation, "although it is difficult for us to use in ordinary life, but for those on the sea, in the desert, in the barren mountains, and in disaster areas, it will be a matter of life."
In May 2020, Huawei released a copy on multiple platforms that "no scars, where is the rough skin, heroes have suffered since ancient times", accompanied by a picture of a Soviet-made Il-5 aircraft with bullet holes in the fuselage. (Weibo @huaweiChina)
Many people on the Internet turned up Huawei's former propaganda slogans, such as "no scars, where is the skin and thick flesh, heroes have suffered many hardships since ancient times", and as Yu Chengdong, executive director of Huawei Technologies, said at the Huawei Developer Conference in early August 2023: "The light boat has passed ten thousand mountains". Although these words have the flavor of commercial competition, they actually reflect the "Chinese road" seen since Huawei.
The People's Republic of China, which was only one year after its founding in 1950, immediately faced the threat of the Korean War (Taiwan's name was called the Korean War), Mao Zedong's phrase "fight with one fist, lest a hundred fists come", and the new China spent three years, one month and two days in ruins to win the victory of resisting US aggression and aiding Korea, and American scholars had to call it "the coldest winter". Nowadays, in the situation that Western countries are generally not optimistic and singing down, including TSMC's "godfather" Zhang Zhongmou believes that "China is difficult to become a global chip hegemon", the "stuck neck" of the United States has not beaten Huawei, a "thorn in the eye", but forced China to achieve technological breakthroughs and industrial upgrading again.
Looking back at the heavy hand containment of Huawei by the United States and the heavy blow to containing China through chip technology, Huawei's release of the Mate 60 Pro new machine, carefully studying its internal precision technology and its symbolic strategic significance, it may not be an exaggeration to call it another "War to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea" victory. Of course, China still has a long bumpy road to go on the difficult road of technological autonomy and innovation breakthrough. This is not only a hurdle that China must overcome, but also a wake-up call that the West should rethink "American supremacy".
Domestic ChatGPT|Baidu: Wen Xin's words are fully open to the society when Xi Jinping repeatedly said that the foundation of Sino-US relations is in the people, what does it mean to visit China China and the United States still say their own things So arrogant, no matter how many high-ranking officials visit China, it is useless, Huawei breaks the US blockade, after 3 years to release a new 5G machine, using domestic Kirin chips to lead netizens to boil, "can never surpass the United States to become the largest economy"? How to see the "end of China's growth miracle"
