Previously we reported that Huawei are due to lose access to future Google updates and software, but might be able to weather the US trading ban, as Huawei make their own processors. However, this latest update, could potentially be a crippling blow to the company as ARM say they are no longer able to supply to Huawei. Huawei use ARM designs in order to make their own processors, which are used in both Huawei, and Honor mobile phones. Without this there could be serious difficulties in producing new smartphones.


Huawei recently launched the P30, P30 Pro, and P30 Lite smarpthones, as well as introducing a new Honor 20 series just this week, with new Honor 20 Pro, Honor 20, and Honor 20 Lite smartphones, all using Android and ARM processors.

 

"ARM is the foundation of Huawei’s smartphone chip designs, so this is an insurmountable obstacle for Huawei,” said Geoff Blaber, from CCS Insight.

"That said, with an abundance of companies in Huawei’s supply chain already having taken action to comply with the US order, Huawei’s ability to operate was already severely affected.” - BBC News.

 

According to Bloomberg, a number of "carriers" are also cancelling planned orders for 5G mobile phone, with BT (EE), and Vodafone in the UK both saying they are not going to be using Huawei's 5G mobile phones.
