Qualcomm confirms that it is shipping chips to Huawei
« on: September 27, 2019, 01:11:00 AM »

Labeled a national security threat in the states, Huawei was placed on the U.S. commerce department's Entity List in the middle of May. As a result, the Chinese manufacturer has been unable to access its U.S. supply chain since costing it the opportunity to surpass Samsung to become the largest phone manufacturer in the world. That's because the company's new flagship Mate 30 line cannot use the Google Play services version of Android due to the ban. This means that the phone won't have core Google apps including the Play Store, Search, YouTube, Gmail and Maps to name a few. Instead, the phones are running on an open-source version of Android with Huawei's App Gallery distributing compatible apps.

Some of the U.S. companies that had to cut ties with Huawei besides Google include Intel, Qualcomm, and Micron. All together, Huawei spent $11 billion on U.S. components and software last year, revenue that will be sorely missed by these suppliers. For example, Huawei was Micron's largest customer last year. One U.S. firm that has resumed shipping to Huawei is chip designer Qualcomm. The company's CEO, Steve Mollenkopf, recently told Caixin that it is indeed delivering components to Huawei that are not covered by the ban.
