The administration of US President Joe Biden continues the policy of Donald Trump, tightening sanctions on Huawei. The United States has imposed stricter conditions on some companies that previously obtained export licenses to do business with the Chinese company.
According to SCMP, the US government has introduced new restrictions on components used in or with 5G devices. The new ban went into effect this week, according to insiders.
With the introduction of these rules, the Biden administration imposed new restrictions on the export of components such as semiconductors, antennas and batteries for 5G-enabled Huawei devices.
Several US companies have previously obtained licenses allowing them to continue to supply components to the Chinese tech giant Huawei. These components could even be used to build 5G devices. Prior to this, the Trump administration placed Huawei, along with other Chinese companies, on a trade blacklist that required U.S. firms to obtain a license to trade with the brand.
According to William Reinsch, senior adviser to the Center for Strategic and International Studies, the United States is working to correct the mistakes of the previous administration. However, the facts indicate that Biden is only continuing the Trump cause.

The Huawei P50 will arrive on April 17th but in a few units
As it became known, the presentation of the new Huawei P50 line of flagship smartphones will take place in the second half of next month, or rather, on April 17, 2021.
Also, sources from the supply chain have confirmed that the supply of Huawei P50 will be limited. We do not know the exact reason, but it is understandable as well. Huawei has very few flagship HiSilicon Kirin 9000 SoCs, and the company has not received new SoCs since last year.
At the moment, the Huawei P50 series is already ready for mass production; it will include the Huawei P50, P50 Pro and P50 Pro + models. The basic version will have the Kirin 9000E mobile platform; and the bigger versions will get the Kirin 9000. In addition, the small version will have a 6.1-inch display, while the Huawei P50 Pro and Huawei P50 Pro + will receive a 6.6-inch and 6.8 -inch panel, respectively. Of course, the top cameras should be the main advantages of the P50 Pro and P50 Pro + smartphones.
The global version of the P50 should arrive with EMUI 11.1; while the Chinese version will receive HarmonyOS. The smartphone will arrive without Google services; instead of them, users will get Huawei Mobile Services and the AppGallery store.
