Huawei is a victim of U.S. bullying, future remains unclear

Huawei is developing its own mobile operating system called HongMeng OS

Finally, it's important to highlight once again that Huawei's Kirin chips are unlikely to survive without Arm's support, so in the grand scheme of things, TSMC's business may not help the world's fastest-growing smartphone manufacturer as much as you'd expect. Even ARM China, a China-based company created for ARM to develop and sell products in the region, had to cease trade with Huawei as ARM Holdings owns a 49% stake.

Arm's severing of ties cuts deeper than similar actions from Intel, Qualcomm, Broadcom, Qorvo, Xilinx, Infineon, Micron, and Western Digital, as Arm-licensed designs are used across a number of business units at Huawei, including their server equipment and telecommunications divisions, which utilize Arm-powered processors produced by HiSilicon.

In another blow to the Chinese tech giant, Japanese conglomerate Panasonic Corp on Thursday joined the growing list of global companies which have said they are disengaging with Huawei, the world's second-largest seller of smartphones and the largest telecom-gear maker.

Arm said in a statement that it's simply "complying with the latest restrictions set forth by the US government".

However, Washington granted a temporary 90-day reprieve for Huawei, which will allow it to continue using American technology - for now. Presumably the upcoming Kirin 990 or Kirin 720 chipsets are affected by this as well, hence essentially crippling Huawei's next generation of flagship smartphones. We are working closely with Google to find out how Huawei can handle the situation and the impact from the U.S. Department of Commerce decision. ARM's designs form the basis of most mobile device processors worldwide. Since last week, the USA has included the Chinese technology giant on a list of companies with which Americans can not trade unless they have a special permit. As a outcome, it believes it is affected by the Trump administration's ban.

Huawei, on the other hand, has issued a statement to Android Central, mentioning that 'We value our close relationships with our partners, but recognize the pressure some of them are under, as a result of politically motivated decisions. Ltd. and Taiwan Mobile also said they would stop the sale of new Huawei devices, pointing to Google's lack of support as a reason, Nikkei reported. While the phone is being dropped, EE is offering the Huawei 5G CPE Pro home router as one of six 5G devices that are available to pre-order now.
