Huawei is running out of alternatives to be able to remain relevant, or even active, in international markets with regard to its offer in the smartphone market. After several attacks in the United States, the brand no longer has access to Google services and applications and, more recently, they are no longer able to produce / buy processors.
As time goes by, it seems more and more certain that the manufacturer will eventually have to abandon the smartphone market, even though it may be only temporary. Now, new information revealed by AMD's Vice President shows a light at the end of the tunnel for Huawei.
Although he did not make a direct reference to the manufacturer's name, Forrest Norrod confirmed that AMD had received a license to sell products to some of the United States' blacklisted companies.
Green light for Huawei could arrive soon
There is no way to know for now, which companies are included in the license obtained by AMD. However, the fact that they obtained the license is already an excellent news for Huawei. Since the government revealed that it would make this type of special license available, there have been many applications, but there has been no approval to date.
Thus, while it is possible for the United States government to continue to boycott Huawei, there is also the possibility that some companies may be allowed to resume business.
I recall that with these prohibitions, the manufacturer was not only prohibited from buying final products from American companies. Despite producing its own processors (HiSilicon Kirin), Huawei used several components that were supplied by American companies.
Most likely, with this news about AMD getting a license, many American companies will be putting pressure on the government, as they too ended up taking a considerable blow to their revenues with the exclusion of Huawei.
