According to the Financial Times, the Huawei P40 Pro may not have fully respected the ban by the United States. This situation makes Huawei forbidden to buy and use American technology in its equipment, except with a special license such as Microsoft and Windows 10, for example.
However, the Financial Times published a report after opening the P40 Pro, revealing its internal components. Some of these components belong to American companies like a chip with a radio antenna, responsible for wi-fi connections.
This radio antenna module contains parts belonging to 3 American companies: Qualcomm, Skyworks and Qorvo. Regarding Qualcomm, known for mobile Snapdragon processors, there will be no problem as Huawei has a license to buy technology from the manufacturer.
However, in relation to Qorvo and Skyworks, this information has yet to be determined. The Financial Times indicates that it is not known whether Huawei has licenses to work with these companies, which could lead to an investigation involving the 3 companies.
Huawei P40 Pro is selling well in China
Still in a pre-sale state, Chinese retailer JD already has 80,000 Huawei P40 Pro reservations, this in just one day. Therefore, the mobile phone is being successful in its domestic market, as expected.
We will have to wait and see if we can say the same about the European market. The Huawei P40 and P40 Pro are part of the first major launch of the brand without Google services, so we will have to evaluate their performance in sales.
