Recently, perhaps, only lazy people are not following the situation with the USA and the Chinese company Huawei. After all
And without chips, too?
ARM, which owns the rights to the architectureprocessors for smartphones and other mobile devices, also decided to abandon the cooperation of Huawei. Although she is from Britain, she uses “technologies of American origin” in her work, and therefore intends to strictly observe the US bans.
Among the employees have spread officea note instructing to suspend work with Huawei and its subsidiaries on “all active contracts, technical support and any agreements awaiting decision-making”.
If this gap is long-term, ownHuawei processors can not be seen. The fact is that its division HiSilicon licenses the core architecture from ARM for its Kunpeng server processors and Kirin mobile platforms. Perhaps Kirin 985 will still have time to release, but the fate of further models is already in question.
“We value our close relationships with partners, butWe recognize the pressure that some of them endure as a result of politically motivated decisions. We are confident that this regrettable situation can be resolved, and our priority remains to continue to provide world-class technology and products to our customers around the world, ”Huawei said.
Meanwhile, the company continues to lose andcustomers. For example, in the UK, mobile operators EE and Vodafone have stopped accepting pre-orders for Huawei Mate 20 × 5G, sales of which were to begin in late May. They fear that the smartphone will not be able to get the full version of Android.
In Japan, they also postponed the release of several models,and in Singapore and the Philippines, they are selling off stocks, refusing new supplies and exchanging devices. In Spain, they have not yet made a final decision, but they fear for the future of Chinese-made products.
Supplemented. It looks like the company has also been excluded from the association SDCard Association. There are no official comments yet, but the Huawei website is no longer in the list of members of the consortium. If so, the manufacturer’s smartphones will no longer be able to use SD memory cards (for smartphones, microSD).
However, last year the company presented its own format of NM Card (Nano Memory) memory cards.
