Rumor has it that the US may allow manufacturers to sell chips to Huawei, but only to non-5G businesses

On Oct. 29, according to a media report cited by Globe, US officials at a US briefing noted that the US will allow more and more chip companies to supply components to Huawei as long as they don’t use the chips for its 5G business.

This may open up some opportunities for Huawei. According to Yonhap, Samsung Display, a unit of Samsung Electronics Group, has recently received permission from the U.S. Department of Commerce to export smartphone displays (OLEDs) to Huawei.

Earlier, Ren Zhengfei said in a speech during a visit to the university, Huawei today encountered difficulties, not relying on the globalization platform in the strategic direction to press on to produce a breakthrough, but the design of advanced chips. The domestic basic industry has not been built, Huawei can not do products, but also to manufacture chips.

Huawei has made a lot of efforts to solve the chip problem. Long before the U.S. ban went into effect, Huawei has made a big purchase from chip suppliers. According to media reports cited by Sina Technology, Bay TSMC to rush the blessing, Huawei has successfully prepared more than 1 year of 5G base station chip inventory.
