A few days will be the year since the United States veto began to block Huawei from having the same freedom he had until that time when he came to sell technological globally. Within the borders of the United States the Chinese company does not work but worldwide the company is a titan.
Throughout these twelve months we have seen several movements made by China and the Trump administration but none have meant a major change.
Google's apps will be at least one of Huawei's problems
One of the biggest issues, at the moment, is that Huawei is facing the possibility of using Google services and applications on their phones. Other models like the Huawei Mate 30 Pro have come without it and that has hurt sales in countries like Spain.
But in some markets, such as China, this would not mean any change as long as Google doesn't work there and the company uses HMS instead. In fact, it was expected that in the MWC 2020, which has been canceled, the company will announce the expansion of these services worldwide.
But not being able to use Google services will only be Chinese in the shoes compared to what the United States plans.
USA wants to cut Huawei's processor supply chain
According to Reuters, the US government is preparing new tactics that will work against China, and one of them will directly affect Huawei's phones.
American companies cannot do business with an Asian product w ithout government approval and now management wants to add that rating, legally, to any company that uses American technology in its products.
This rating is intended to affect any processor, such as TSMC, that although it is a Taiwanese company, it uses other American products to create its chipsets.
TSMC is one of the world's largest software manufacturers and a major supplier of chipsets from HiSilicon, a Huawei-based company that builds Kirin monitors for their cell phones.
OPPO teaches tissue culture: it guarantees that it will improve its cellular processor
Chinese manufacturers OPPO have confirmed that it will upgrade, in partnership with realme and OnePlus, its own processor for future use on its mobile phones.
This would be a big deal for Huawei, which would struggle to be able to work on it. In addition, according to a report by Everbright Security Securities "There is no manufacturing line in China that only uses machines made in China, so it is very difficult to make any chipset without US equipment."
The United States offers some expansion to Huawei, but it retains the veto
The US Department of Commerce has announced that it is offering a new extension to Huawei, for 45 days, but is keeping a veto on the company.
No decision was made
Two sources who have informed Reuters have made it clear that it is on the table but has not yet been decided on whether it will be used. The political and economic move that would leave such an organization would do much harm to China, but it is not unreasonable to think that the United States will come out unharmed.
