HUAWEI, a tech company located in China, was denied access to 5G processors, but they may be permitted to do so once again
To recap, the US government placed the company on its “entity list” due to “spying” allegations which prevented the company from accessing tech with US tech without a special license.
The outcome? The only other feature missing from contemporary HUAWEI smartphones is Google out of the box. The company’s most recent 5G flagship was unveiled three years ago! (2020)
Even the new HUAWEI P60 Pro (PHP 58,999 starting price) with a supposedly 5G-ready Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor only has 4G.
However, this might change soon!
Future Huawei phones will support 5G!
Alleged reports from China claimed that some industry suppliers said that the United States has allowed Qualcomm to sell HUAWEI 5G chips. The report said that the move was made to help Qualcomm with more sales.
If this news is true, having 5G on its mobile devices will increase the competitiveness of its future releases further. The rumored device that might ship with a 5G-ready Qualcomm chip is the Mate 60 Series in the second half of the year.
Since Huawei has not yet made an official announcement, nothing is fixed in stone at this time.
