According to a statement cited by the Wall Street Journal, Qualcomm is lobbying the U.S. government to sell chips to China, including 5g chips used in 5g smartphones. Qualcomm must obtain a license from the U.S. Department of Commerce to sell and distribute semiconductor components to Huawei.
The U.S. government has ceded $8 billion worth of the market to foreign competitors of Qualcomm each year due to the U.S. governments governance restrictions, the report said. For example, MediaTek and Samsung Electronics are the beneficiaries of the US governments restrictive policy. It said its investment in 5g technology has won it customers worldwide.
In response to the above news, Qualcomm did not immediately respond to requests for comment from the media.
Last month, the company settled a patent dispute with Huawei, which will pay $1.8 billion to the company in the fourth quarter. At present, however, Huawei is still prohibited from buying Qualcomm chips due to restrictions imposed by the U.S. government.
In early August, it was reported that Huawei signed a letter of intent with Qualcomm. However, Huawei has also signed a letter of intent and a large purchase order with MediaTek, and the order amount exceeds 120 million chips, which is far higher than that of Qualcomm.
At the 2020 summit of the 100 peoples Conference on information technology in China on Friday, Yu Chengdong said that Huaweis global leading Kirin series chips could not be made after September 15 due to US sanctions.
However, Yu Chengdong revealed that Huaweis new generation mate 40 series released in September this year will use Huawei Kirin chips. (Tianmen Mountain)
