China's Huawei Makes Phones Without US Parts

China's Huawei Makes Phones Without US Parts

Following the US-China trade disputes, the US Government has started to ease off on Chinese based companies.

"When Huawei came out with this high-end phone - and this is its flagship - with no USA content, that made a pretty big statement", Susquehanna International Group semiconductor analyst Christopher Rolland told the Journal, RT reported. As reported by the Wall Street Journal, the Mate 30 was built using no parts from the United States, according to an analysis by UBS and Japanese technology lab Fomalhaut Techno Solutions, which dismantled the phone to examine its components. Similarly, Huawei stopped purchasing Wi-Fi and Bluetooth chips from Broadcom and now relies on its own chips.

The US Commerce Department blacklisted Huawei following a May executive order from President Donald Trump that forced US companies to get licenses to do business with the maker of phones and network equipment, which prompted national security concerns due to its cozy relationship with the Chinese government. Huawei appears to have found non-American suppliers for several critical components.

Marco Silva is to hold his pre-Liverpool press conference later today, and the news could be broken as early as this afternoon. But the Toffees have rewarded him with a new deal after his impressive start to life at Goodison Park.


"All of our 5G is now America-free. It is good for Huawei, but we have no choice".

While chips in older models of the Mate 30 are said to have come from Cirrus Logic, a Texas-based chipmaker, newer models' chips are supplied by NXP Semiconductors, which operates in the Netherlands.For its part, Huawei has remained bullishly optimistic about its ability to cope with U.S. sanctions. "That has been taken out of our hands", John Suffolk, Huawei's top cybersecurity official told the publication.

Huawei is the largest global supplier of networking technology, and now that they no longer have access to American-made supplies, production will slow down. The ban pushed Huawei into looking into alternatives. The latest smartphone from Huawei comes with an open-source version of Android with company's own AppGallery store for downloading apps on the latest phone.
