Jakarta, CNN Indonesia –
Some handphone (hp) Huawei reportedly rare because it began to disappear from circulation in several locations in China. This scarcity also increases the price of used or secondhand cellphones from that brand.
Some products that are already hard to find include the Huawei P series, the Mate series, and the Nova series.
The scarcity of this product seems to be the result of US sanctions which prevent Huawei from producing Kirin, the chipset for smartphone hers. However, there has been no official statement from Huawei regarding this.
The US government prohibits Huawei from doing business with any chipset maker using US technology.
The sanctions eventually closed the door for Huawei to produce high-end Kirin cipsets or get chips from other companies such as Qualcomm, MediaTek, Samsung, and others.
Launch Gizmo China, sanctions will apply today (15/9). Recent reports say that currently Huawei has no alternative plans to meet the needs of the smartphone chipset.
As a result of the sanctions, Huawei is likely to focus on developing technology for cars, cellphone accessories and LED screens instead of high-end smartphones. The company will also increase its focus on other devices such as tablets and laptops.
However, Huawei is said to have stockpiled several important components in the assembly of the new mobile phone, the Huawei Mate 40. However, these components are predicted to last only a few months.
So the company has very limited time to find a way out for the smartphone business.
Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei’s Consumer Business has confirmed that the company’s upcoming flagship smartphone, the Huawei Mate 40, will be launched on schedule.
Launch CN Tech Post, Samsung, LG, and other South Korean manufacturers will stop working together to make chips with Huawei.
This is because the US ban requires that manufacturers who have used US technology do not supply spare parts to Huawei.
Samsung and SK Hynix will stop selling parts to Huawei. Meanwhile, Samsung and LG Display will stop supplying high-end smartphone panels to Huawei.
However, Samsung and other Korean manufacturers are known to have submitted applications to the US to continue supplying Huawei.
MediaTek, TSMC and even Qualcomm have taken similar steps before, but so far all have not received any information that they can supply Huawei.
