If the news is confirmed, Sony and Kingman will follow the pace of major chip manufacturers applying for supply license to China. According to previous reports of major media, Intel and AMD have successfully applied for Huawei supply license.
At present, Sino US relations are at a low point for decades, and Washington has issued a series of technical sanctions against Huawei in the past two years.
Huawei is one of the largest customers of Sonys smart phone image sensor, while Kingman is the worlds second largest flash memory chip manufacturer and an important supplier of Huawei.
As previously reported by jimicronet, Jiaxia pointed out in its latest IPO documents that the US ban on Huawei may cause oversupply in the overall nandflash market and the price will fall.
