The United States posed restrictions over Huawei to sell its Kirin chipsets used in smartphones as well as telecom equipment. This was done over national security concerns. The Trump administration decided to be very critical of Chinese telecommunications companies then. But now, as per the latest report from Reuters, Qualcomm received the license from the US Department of Commerce to sell its chipsets to Huawei.
The Qualcomm has been granted permission to supply its products, including 4G chipsets, to Huawei. A Qualcomm spokesperson confirmed, “We received a license for a number of products, which includes some 4G products.”
