The Chinese technology giant has done it anyway. Huawei, as per the reports from WSJ and other Twitter feeds, was successful in making its new flagship Mate 30 series without using any US components.
This revelation came from Huawei’s CEO and founder Ren Zhengfei in an interview with WSJ. He explained how the company is navigating the US’s ban and growing successfully. The company is now completely depending on its proprietary SoC, HiSilion. Previously, it used to rely on Broadcom’s WiFi and Bluetooth systems.
Ditching Cirrus Logic for audio amplifiers, it’s now relying on Netherlands based NXP for it. Just like it, it’s now viewing several directions for other component manufacturers for completing a device without any US things.

Though Huawei succeeded in making a phone without relying on American parts, it’s still seemed interested in dealing with them if the ban is removed. Maybe, the surviving model they tried now couldn’t be lasting longer, and need American things to work better and stay competitive.
A spokesperson from Huawei told WSJ as “Huawei has a clear preference to continue to integrate and buy components from U.S. supply partners. If that proves impossible because of the decisions of the US government, we will have no choice but to find alternative supply from non-US sources”.
After all, the Chinese contender has however succeeded in dunking all the hurdles aroused due to US ban. It has been making backup plans for all such since a long time. One such move is the making of HarmonyOS; Huawei’s take on Android.
HarmonyOS is Huawei’s home-brewed operating software that takes no support from Google but makes Google apps to work on their build. Though seemed hard, they’re trying to make it possible and would soon be implementing in its future technologies if this ban continues.
