Panasonic halts some component shipments to Huawei amid U.S. ban

Huawei's placement on the United States government's trade blacklist will likely require the Chinese tech giant to rethink the way it develops key products across its smartphone, laptop, and wearable lines.

China's electronic company Huawei is barred from some updates to the Android operating system.

"It worked before in the case of ZTE".

After which, numerous tech giants announced they would cease working with the Chinese tech company, including Google, ARM, and initially Panasonic. U.S. officials this week, however, issued a 90-day reprieve on the ban on dealing with Huawei, saying breathing space is needed to avoid huge disruption.

He also discussed the supply of products to Huawei from global partners.

The response of the company is quick as well. So, to me, the card that they are going to play back that matters more to us than anything else is they (China) own rare earth.

The US government recently placed Chinese tech behemoth Huawei on a trade blacklist, a move that could require the world's second-largest smartphone maker to rethink everything from the way it designs its chips to the software that powers its line of smartphones and tablets. Huawei represented 15% of the company's total revenue in the year ended March 30. "We are considering various possibilities". Hi-Silicon has chalked up an impressive record in chip development; it is the fifth largest and the fastest growing fabless company in the world with 2018 sales of more than Dollars 7.5 billion. U.S. chip producers, such as Intel and Qualcomm, have also reportedly cut their ties with Huawei.

Washington said this week it would delay implementation of the ban for 90 days to allow Huawei to find suppliers. However, there are some signposts in the next six to nine months that can shed light on how Plan "B" will work out.

Research firm IDC said Honor had been a successful model for Huawei, with an appeal that went beyond the young customer they were targeting. Will the USA use the long arm of legal interpretation on U.S. suppliers?

Huawei's operations face damage from the US' export ban, despite investing heavily in recent years to develop its own components and software to reduce its reliance on the US Other Chinese tech manufacturers are even more reliant on USA suppliers, making the disruption of supplies such as chips and operating systems a weapon in the broader trade fight between Washington and Beijing. China is South Korea's biggest export market.

"It goes against the values of the worldwide business community, cuts off the global supply chain and disrupts fair competition in the market", he says.

Second is whether the future business of Huawei is significantly affected by the cutoff of U.S. suppliers? In the first quarter of this year, our revenue grew 39% over the same period last year. "He further noted that Huawei have the most 5G standard-essential patents in the world - about 27 per cent of the total", he said.

News of Japanese company Panasonic cutting ties with the Chinese smartphone company began circulating a few hours ago as well.

The fourth is overseas sales of its smartphones under the new operating system. The market is effectively a duopoly, with Android running on 87% of smartphones sold in the first quarter, and Apple's iOS running on nearly all of the rest, according to market research firm Canalys. If the Huawei ban ends up being lifted at some point (which would probably be part of a larger trade deal with China), perhaps the devices will return.

Persuading users to switch operating systems is notoriously hard.

But pending or not, the USA sanctions have sparked a chain reaction among suppliers of digital devices worldwide. Following the announcement, a slew of technology companies have said they are suspending business with the firm. South Africans have been concerned with what the latest developments mean for them. To us, the most important thing is to do our job well. The modification and subsequent acceptance of Huawei smartphones overseas is an acid test for Huawei, and any sign of success or failure is a harbinger of Huawei's survival or not.

SenseTime and Yitu Technology, also facial recognition companies, did not immediately comment on the reported ban.
