U.S. bans Huawei business | TECH(feed)


Hey everyone welcome back to tech feed i’m
juliet beauchamp. Today i’m diving into the ongoing tech war
between the united states and china. I’m breaking down new u-s government restrictions
against chinese tech and what that could mean for you. Stick around. Okay–i know i haven’t talked about huawei’s
ongoing drama with the united states in awhile, but that doesn’t mean it’s died down. Actually, i would say it’s getting bigger
by the second. Let’s start there. So last week the president trump issued an
executive order barring business quote “posing an unacceptable risk.” while that doesn’t single out huawei, it’s
long been documented that the u-s has pushed back on huawei doing business in the country. There’s been speculation that huawei devices–in
particular, those used in build 5-g networks–pose a security risk because huawei allegedly may
report data back to the chinese government. This is purely speculation though, and huawei
has denied these claims numerous times. So yeah, this transaction ban doesn’t name
huawei, but it’s widely accepted that the chinese telecom company is the target of the
executive order. Now let’s talk some of the immediate fallout
from this ban. American companies are now barred from doing
business with huawei. That means chip makers like qualcomm, intel
and broadcom may no longer sell parts to huawei. A particularly sticky situation involves google–huawei
phones operate on the android platform. And huawei does a lot of business in the united
states–it spent 11 billion dollars last year buying elements for its phone from american
companies. It’s estimated huawei makes about three
quarters of its smartphone chips. So while its chip business may be hurting,
let’s talk about how google is responding. Huawei uses google’s android o-s for its
phones–and how can you have a phone without an operating system? In response to the ban, google has cut some
business with huawei. If you have a huawei phone, you’ll still
be able to use it. But huawei has lost access to future android
updates. Future huawei phones that use android will
not have access to google apps like youtube, gmail or the google play store. But that’s assuming huawei makes more phones
while this ban is in effect. Trump’s executive order poses a serious
risk to huawei’s business and its supply chain. But it’s possible this ban may be used as
a bargaining chip in the ongoing trade war between the u-s and china. So if you’re a huawei smartphone user, there’s
no need to panic…. Yet. It’s possible this ban will be short lived
if next month’s meeting between the u-s and china settles the trade dispute. And if not… well, it may be time to switch
phones. Thanks for watching this episode of tech feed. If you liked this video be sure to give it

affected by this ban, let me know how you feel in the comments. See you next time.

  1. Samsung paid 2billion dollar to Donald trump, thats why the trump ban huawei, because huawei is going to be the best selling brand and number1 5g and 6g technology in the world. they dont want the chinese manufacturing company on the top of the list, thats why they ban Huawei…. Good Luck Huawei We like your manufacturing Phones, And we support Huawei….
