Also develops British processing cores ARM Announces a freeze on relations with the Chinese manufacturer - while in the background there are estimates of a future deal that will save the situation
Is Huawei going to collapse? The snowball created by the separation of powers between Google and the big Chinese manufacturer that entered the black lists in the United States refuses to stop and drains the effects of derivatives from companies and non-American-based entities - ARM (Owned by Japan's SoftBank) announced a temporary suspension of cooperation with the company.
The vast majority of processors in modern smartphones are based on one or another of the cores in architecture ARM, With Huawei's Kirin family products (via its HiSilicon subsidiary) also based on its own Mali family cores ARM - and now the significance of the boycott is that the Chinese manufacturer will not be able to continue to acquire the intellectual property rights of the company, and will have to find a new direction in the development of future chips. This is no less a challenge than the boycott Google, And it seems that without a solution it may bring the Huawei In the long term to a situation in which it is unable to bring new devices into the market.
If this is not enough, the company's membership is also Huawei In the SD Association, Wi-Fi Alliance and JEDEC have been suspended because they are based in the United States, and this is something that will prevent the company from taking care of its personal interests under future version policies for the common features of all smart devices out there - and may prevent it from adopting the latest and most advanced features in its products.
The current situation seems bleak and even fatal for the manufacturer, despite years of attempts to reduce reliance on products from Western sources and move to independent development, but is there any hope for a rebound anyway? The president of the United States spoke on the issue and made it clear that the lifting of sanctions could take place As part of a new comprehensive trade agreement between China and the United States, Which has been a major bone of contention between the powers for several months and has caused considerable economic damage to factors on both sides (Huawei Is probably the largest of them).
Also Chinese ZTE Which was forced to freeze its activities fully last year As a result of American sanctions, it eventually won forgiveness and forgiveness that enabled it to return to function with its Axon 10 Pro devices. However, it can not be denied that the current crisis may have a large and long-term impact on Huawei's future plans - and we will certainly not be surprised to discover that the relationship with Google And Android will no longer be the same again.
