- The Mate 30 Pro now comes with chips, which are made by Holland’s NXP Semiconductors as replacements for those made by US firm Cirrus Logic
- Recently, the Trump administration has given a new 90-day extension to Huawei to do business with US companies
According to a recent report by The Wall Street Journal, the latest flagship smartphone from Huawei, the Mate 30 Pro, does not contain any components from America. The publication cites a report from UBS and Fomalhaut Techno Solutions.
For example, the Mate 30 Pro now comes with chips, which are made by Holland’s NXP Semiconductors as replacements for those made by US firm Cirrus Logic. The report also stated that the company has stopped sourcing WiFi and Bluetooth chips from Broadcom and it now relies on its own chips.
No choice but to find alternative
Huawei told the news daily that it maintains a clear preference to continue to integrate and buy components from U.S. supply partners. If that proves impossible because of the decisions of the U.S. government, they will have no choice but to find alternative supply from non-U.S. sources
According to a recent report by the Associated Press, the China-based company is selling its folding smartphone without Google apps. It is to be noted here that the USA has blacklisted Huawei from doing business in the country citing National Security reasons.
Recently, the Trump administration has given a new 90-day extension to Huawei to do business with US companies. Earlier Huawei had got a 90 days extension in August 2019. The US had blacklisted Huawei as it felt Huawei was engaged in activities contrary to US national security or foreign policy interests.
Ken Hu, deputy chairman, Huawei stated that the restrictions, based on ungrounded allegations, have been imposed on Huawei in order to disrupt our business operations. They believe this behavior is totally unjustified.
