Qualcomm has officially confirmed that they have received a license from the U.S. government for some 4G products. This means that Qualcomm will not be able to supply 5G technology to Huawei until the American government gives the green light.
The last few months have not been easy for Huawei, Donald Trump’s decision to veto the company from the trade list caused many problems.
The Chinese company had no chance to conduct negotiations with other American companies, such as Google. This created uncertainty for users who have already been familiar with Android and Google services on Huawei devices.
Another major blow to the company was the inability to obtain processors from Qualcomm, although the situation is beginning to normalize.
Recently, Qualcomm announced that they have reached a patent license agreement with Huawei. In addition to Qualcomm, there are other companies that have received “permission” from the United States to work with Huawei such as Intel, AMD, Skyworks and many other chip manufacturers. There are also reports that Sony and Howe Technology could supply components to the Chinese company.
Qualcomm confirms that they will be able to sell processors to Huawei. It is not yet clear whether processors with 5G support will be available in the near future, nor has it been specified which chips will be in future mobile devices.
