A few days ago, Huawei was listed on the entity list by the BIS of the US Department of Commerce, and the US company exported chips, software and other products and technologies. Huawei needs to apply, but the application will be rejected in principle, which means that Huawei is blocked by the United States. This will cause trouble for Huawei's supply chain. The core chips such as X86 processors are not replaceable.
The US blockade of Huawei is also a signal to other Chinese companies, reminding domestic companies to pay attention to the supply chain crisis, especially for the smartphone industry, Google’s Android system and GMS services can't be replaced in overseas markets. Once you encounter the problem that Google stops supporting a mobile phone, it will be a big problem.
The lips are cold, I believe that domestic manufacturers recognize the importance of independent technology, and don’t want to live with ideas that are not as good as buying, otherwise such events will continue to be staged. .
