US authorizes Qualcomm to sell chips to Chinese group

Huawei is again authorized to trade with Qualcomm. Like Samsung, Sony or Intel, the American founder has obtained a sales license from the United States. Qualcomm will therefore be able to supply computer chips to the Chinese manufacturer, still unable to produce its own chipsets.

On the blacklist since May 2019, Huawei has been deprived of most of its suppliers. In recent weeks, however, sanctions against the Chinese firm have eased. As promised, the United States Department of Commerce has granted multi-vendor licenses wishing to collaborate with Huawei.

Recently, Samsung Display thus obtained the authorization to sell OLED screens to Huawei. For its part, Sony has been authorized to supply photo sensors for smartphones to the manufacturer. As announced, the United States finally provided an authorization to a famous chipmaker, Qualcomm.

On the same subject: Huawei would soon confirm the sale of its subsidiary Honor

Huawei smartphones with Snapdragon SoC?

According to information relayed by ITHomes, a Chinese media, Qualcomm would therefore be able to supply smartphone chips to Huawei. In fact, Qualcomm had already obtained a sales license last September. It would seem that this first authorization did not concern components dedicated to supplying mobile phones. The license obviously only concerned a very limited list of chips. With this second authorization, the United States would have agreed to extend the scope of the waiver.

Under these conditions, ITHomes believes that Huawei would consider integrating Snapdragon SoCs into its future high-end smartphones, including the P50 and Mate 50 series. Deprived of TSMC, Huawei is no longer able to produce Kirin SoCs developed by its subsidiary HiSilicon.

According to the report, Qualcomm would be able to meet the large demand for Huawei chips. The Chinese group would indeed have sold its subsidiary Honor to a consortium owned by Beijing. Under these conditions, the quantity of chips required for its mobile division has been reduced. While awaiting official confirmation from Huawei or Qualcomm, we invite you to take the announcement with hindsight. We’ll tell you more as soon as possible.
