Despite the black list, Huawei P40 Pro still has American parts

According to the Financial Times, Huawei continues to use products from the United States in its latest flagship smart phone (Huawei P40), although the U.S. has put Chinese telecom equipment manufacturers on a commercial blacklist called "Entity List" components.

Huawei launched the series a few days ago (Huawei P40), which is the company's latest line of smartphones since the sanctions were imposed in Washington last May, which prevented American companies from dealing with unlicensed Huawei.

After the sanctions, the Trump administration accused Huawei of spying on Beijing. Huawei had to find alternatives to American components because it could no longer buy American products.

For comparison, the Financial Times removed the Huawei P40 Pro phone this year, and the Huawei P30 phone was released for comparison to the US sanctions last year. The disassembly process was completed by Shenzhen XYZone, which is responsible for dismantling the smartphone and identifying component suppliers.

Phone manufacturers sometimes use different components in different combinations of the same amount of smartphones. According to the report, U.S. companies have made some parts in Huawei's latest smartphones, although the U.S. has banned all companies from selling to Chinese technology companies. .

The mobile front unit RF (Huawei P40 Pro) was manufactured by three American chip manufacturers: Qualcomm (Skyworks) and (Qorvo). The RF front panel is an important part of the phone. You are connected to the antenna and need to make calls and speak to the internet. .

Dan Wang, technical analyst at research firm Gavekal Dragonomics, said: "Huawei has demonstrated its flexibility by replacing several U.S. components during the phone design cycle. However, the continued use of Qorvo chipsets and Skyworks demonstrates that reliability is very difficult, technically in the states United. "

Wang said the front end of the radio frequency is a form of analog chips and that the United States will continue to control this area, adding, "While the United States is discussing tougher sanctions against Huawei, the flexibility of the company will increase next year. Test."

Last year, the cellular RF wireless unit (Huawei P30) also came from Qualcomm (Skyworks) and (Qorvo), and the stock price fell due to news from U.S. sanctions against Huawei.

The list of companies means that U.S. companies must apply for a license to export technology from the United States to Huawei. The U.S. government has granted its company a temporary license at a fixed price so they can sell to Huawei to help customers like telecom companies who may need to exchange part of their wireless device.

However, the temporary general license does not include sales for the purpose of manufacturing new products such as smartphones (Huawei P40 Pro). As a result, the company must apply for individual licenses, and the US Department of Commerce does not list the companies that obtained the required licenses.

A Huawei spokesperson said that the company has consistently followed all export control regulations in many countries, including the United States, and all product materials were legally obtained from Huawei. With global partners. We insist on working with partners to provide quality products to consumers. Products.

Other notable changes include the disappearance of the American chip maker Micron from Huawei P40 Pro.

Micron made NAND flash memory chips for certain batches of mobile phones (Huawei P30) last year, while Samsung in South Korea made the same chips for other batches of flash memory. This year's mobile phones (Huawei P40 Pro) appears to contain only those in the Samsung NAND flash memory card.
