Google's withdrawal of "full" Androids is already an annoying relationship to Huawei, but it may have to face an even worse barrier. As a result of the US ban on doing business, Army workers were instructed to terminate any cooperation with the Chinese corporation. This would mean Kirin's end processors, which drive most of Huawei's phones, and great difficulties in getting new chips.
The BBC said that Arm had compiled an e-mail letter that forced its employees to terminate "all valid contracts, agreement on aid, and any agreements" with Huawei and its subsidiaries. The Kirin processor does not directly develop Huawei, but its subsidiary HiSilicon. Army works in Cambridge in Britain and has been owned by SoftBank Corporation Japan since 2016, the owner of Sprint (who has been trying to join T-Mobile in the US for some time). However, the company claims that its processors include "technology originating from the United States" – the Army has offices and laboratories in several countries, including The US, and possibly licenses for some patents – and so it must respect the action taken by US President Donald Trump. This can be a matter of interpretation, and there is the possibility of applying for permission to operate with Huawei, but it is clear that everyone prefers to respect the prohibition proactively. If things are going to develop differently, they can still be canceled.
The arm itself does not produce processors, but she is interested in selling a license for her intellectual property, primarily the processor's architecture. Based on this set of orders, Huawei, Qualcomm and others develop chip systems, adding modems to them, and others, packing them all together on one piece of silicon, and put someone, like TSMC or Samsung, to their production. Manufacturers who choose an easier option and Armo take the Cortex cortex kernel and Mali graphic kernels only, all of which combine and then sell the final chips. In the last few years, Huawei has put a lot on Kirin processors, including, among other things, incorporating significant hardware learning capabilities and data recovery in his own database for t. i. artificial intelligence. That is why the loss of these processors, which cannot be produced without an Army license, is a big blow. As with Google, termination of collaboration should only apply to future projects. The current processors, among them Kirin 980, are found in the 20 Mate Pro Pro, P30 (Pro) and Honor 20 (Pro), securely. Also, the successor to Kirin 985 is probably on the horizon. It was definitely intended to introduce the head of mobile department Huawei Richard Yu in the preliminary speech already published on the edges of IFA entertainment electronics fair at the beginning of September in Berlin. Of course, this is not necessarily true at the moment. In addition to the fact that Google's resignation will not come into force immediately, the 30 Mate series and whatever Huawei and Honor would intend to introduce before the end of the year, "under the roof", at least the same. However, with the coming year, there would be serious problems.
If HiSilicon loses the ability to develop processors further, Huawei should buy you somewhere. Assuming that the Army would not try to prevent any processors from selling to the Chinese corporation. A branch is a monopolist in the mobile area, each phone and also have the main processors on its base. Years ago, Intel tried to compete, but his experiment fell with Atom processors down in crazily. At the moment, no one else can do something similar. And the dream that the Chinese would try to do this kind of project was faster rather than later utopia. Among the companies that produce the processors on the basis of the Weapons, Qualcomm is the leader, and this company is America, and as a potential supplier, doesn't work t if the "sanctions" continue. Excellent performance chips can also be produced by Apple, like the Bionic A12 in the latest iPhones and the iPadu Air, but first, it's not selling any chips to anyone, and secondly, it also lives. in the United States.

Huawei (and even more Chinese authorities) now remains a hope and strives to reach an agreement with the United States, whether by diplomacy or revenge. All signs indicate that the company is well placed to spend a few months without large scratches, possibly as long as it takes the whole business year without much excitement. But during this time, he has to solve the fate that stems from that, or else it can be a decade of 2020. However, this example shows an almost dependency. every manufacturer of smart phones and much more on the goodwill of a few key platform owners and their policies. The only serious alternative to Google's Android is iOS, which Apple keeps over for itself. For processors on the Arm, there is no alternative at all, and anyone who does not have access to this technology is afraid.
