Following the US decision to blacklist Huawei and its 70 subsidiaries and prohibit them from purchasing
Looks like the giants have joined the boycottsemiconductor business - Intel, Qualcomm and Broadcom. Intel supplies Huawei with server equipment and processors for laptops, Broadcom supplies components for network equipment, and Qualcomm supplies modems and processors for smartphones.
Sources say these companies have told their employees they will stop supplying Huawei products “until further notice.”
They have not yet officially commented on this information.
What to do?
Huawei representatives do not lose optimism (orthey want it to seem so) and assure that they will “survive” even without cooperation with American companies. Company director Ren Zhengfei said they were preparing for this scenario.

Thirdly, the company has a solution to the problemAndroid and Google services. This is Hongmeng's own operating system (it is not yet clear whether this is a code name or a final one), work on which has been ongoing since 2012. Whether it is ready for use and whether Huawei will have to change Android to Hongmeng is still unknown.
