Huawei is one of the Chinese companies hardest hit by the US veto. This has involved a huge effort to sell more products in the world without counting on the help of other key companies in the segment, such as Google, whose it has gone unmarked at the level of software and application stores. But the Chinese company has been looking for every possible way to go ahead and somehow sneak into the US market. It seems they have found one and it is to sell their phones without 5G with the help of Qualcomm.
Huawei gets Qualcomm chips
In the world of mobile phones, we have seen how some companies manufacture some of the components that later carry their smartphones. The most common are processors, a very important chip in the creation of an electronic device. In the case of mobile phones, they are very important thanks to the fact that it integrates many of the characteristics that make it more or less powerful or different from a device with these characteristics, such as the graphics card or the modem, among others.
In case of huawei, we find the Kirin line that has prevailed in its high-end terminals, but now the company is at a time when it wants to commit everything to reach more users. Recall that the Trump administration has already extended this ban until this year, but the war is not about the sale of mobile phones, but the integration of 5G into mobile networks.
But it turns out that the Chinese house has found the solution to “skip” their veto in one go and that is to sell their phones only with 4G. According to what SlashGear has in its lines, Huawei would have the trimmed versions of the Snapdragon 778G or even the next Snapdragon 898 which is expected to be announced soon. This would help improve trade relations and place Chinese mobile phones in electronics stores without losing capacity.
All the power of a good phone, but without 5G
As we tell you, the United States has an “outstanding account” with Huawei and his phones. The reason is not that it is one of the most important companies in the segment, but its telecommunications technology. And is that the Chinese company is one of the pioneers in the 5G distribution network along with others like ZTE, something that was a heavy blow to former President Trump at the time. With Biden, it looks like the shutdown will continue, but with this new strategy Huawei was able to regain some of its most loyal users who settled in US territory.
