Reports from China claim Qualcomm has obtained license to sell chips to Huawei

Yordan, 11 November 2020

Huawei is currently unable to manufacture its HiSilicon chips and the company has to look to other providers such as Mediatek. Today a report from China claimed Qualcomm has already received a license to supply Huawei, too, increasing its options.

Reports from China claim Qualcomm will sell chips to Huawei

According to the report, Qualcomm will manage to match Huawei’s demand only if the Honor brand is off the shoulders of the Chinese company - currently, San Diego does not have the capacity to add the second biggest smartphone manufacturer to its portfolio.

However, with Honor’s reported sale to Digital China for CNY100 billion ($15 billion), the landscape might change a bit. Currently, Qualcomm has another issue ahead of it - it is an American company and requires a special license in order to work with Huawei as part of the Sino-US trade war.

At the time of writing this article we could not find any official issues or documents that Qualcomm has obtained such a license, for which it applied back in September, but we'll be on the lookout and keep you posted.
