 US media said that Qualcomm is lobbying the U.S. government to lift the restrictions on the sale of chips to China: if it does not sell to Huawei, it will give up the 8 billion market to its competitors


The Wall Street Journal quoted a briefing from Qualcomm as saying that it was lobbying the US government to allow it to sell chips to China. The company said the U.S. governments export ban will not prevent Huawei from acquiring the necessary parts, but may cede its multi billion dollar market to its overseas competitors..

Reuters said the company had not yet responded to its request for comment.

On August 7, Yu Chengdong, CEO of Huaweis consumer business, said at the 2020 summit of Chinas 100 peoples Conference on information technology, a new generation of flagship aircraft, mate 40, will be launched this autumn, which will carry Huaweis own Kirin chip. However, Yu Chengdong also said frankly: due to the second round of sanctions, the production of the chip will be cut off after September 15. It may be the last generation of Kirin high-end chips and out of print. At present, the semiconductor technology in China has not caught up.

Yu Chengdong said that after the U.S. sanctions last year, Huawei delivered less than 60 million smartphones, but in the first half of this year, Huaweis consumer business smartphone market share in the second quarter ranked first in the world. Under the new round of sanctions, Huaweis chips have been out of stock. He predicted that this years shipment data will be less than 240 million.

According to media reports, Huawei not only signed a letter of intent with Qualcomm, but also signed a letter of intent and a large purchase order with MediaTek, and the order amount exceeded 120 million chips. If we take Huaweis forecast of 180 million mobile phone shipments per year in recent years, the market share of MediaTek is more than two-thirds, far better than that of Qualcomm.
