In case you are unaware, the US banned the use of telecommunications equipment from foreign firms deemed a national security risk. Huawei is also placed on a trade blocklist, which restricts most US suppliers from supplying goods and technology to the company. It was part of an executive order that came into effect on May 15, 2019.

But on June 12, 2023, a rumor was circulating in the Chinese media sources. It stated that the US would be allowing Qualcomm to sell 5G chipsets to Huawei. People from the industry backed the rumor by stating that the US has loosened its strictness for some chip export.

Those were some big claims. And if they turned out to be true, Huawei could jump right into the global competition and launch 5G smartphones. It would have also ramped up Qualcomm’s business. But on June 13, 2023, the head of Huawei Consumer Business Group denied the report!
