The US government’s Huawei import ban continues to deliver far reaching blow to the prolific Chinese smartphone Smartphone maker. A number of U.S firms already severed their ties with the phone maker , and more are still to follow suite.
The latest of the firm to cut ties with the company is Micron – the American global corporation based in Boise, Idaho. The company is a holding company for subsidiaries engaged in the design and production of computers, semiconductors, and other related products. In a statement released earlier this week, the U.S based company said it respects and abides by all laws and regulations of the United States and the countries in which it operates, and has suspended supply to Huawei in compliance with regulations and orders. The firm also sent letters to its partners mandating them from dealing directly or indirectly with the Chinese firm until further notice.
While Huawei has yet to comment on the matter, there are indications that Micron’s decision might not mean any serious harm to the Chinese, instead the reverse will be the case. Although Huawei source memory chips from the company, but the company will be at the receiving end given that the Chinese firm has other alternative source for its memory chips. Moreover, 13% of the its overall revenue came from Huawei as per Micron’s financial report, as of the first half of 2019.
