Containing China: Intel, Qualcomm Halt Chip Supplies To Huawei

IT NEWS NIGERIA:

Report has it that several major US corporations, such as Qualcomm and Intel, have reportedly joined Google in implementing President Donald Trump’s executive order that declared Chinese tech giant Huawei a national security risk.

Following in the footsteps of Google, a number of top American chipmakers – including Intel, Qualcomm, Xilinx, and Broadcom – halted their business transactions with Huawei, according to Bloomberg, citing insiders. The companies are said to have told their employees that no new shipments will be made “until further notice.”

According to RT, Google has confirmed it was also “complying with the order and reviewing the implications” of the ban introduced by Trump under the pretext of national security. While Google has yet to make an official announcement, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer is likely to lose access to Android operating system updates, while its forthcoming smartphones will be shut out of most Google apps and services.

Washington accuses Huawei of spying on behalf of the Chinese government, but the telecommunications giant consider the US officials’ rhetoric to be a blatant example of unfair market competition.
