Huawei x Qualcomm if ever?

But being resilient as always, the company will source its chips from other makers like MediaTek and Samsung.

Huawei x Qualcomm?

Qualcomm sees this as an opportunity to sell chips to Huawei. But since it is a US firm, they need to get permission from the US government for them to make chips for Huawei.

So, Qualcomm is trying to persuade the US government to let them sell chips to Huawei.

The company argued in its presentation that Huawei will ultimately source its hardware to make 5G phones in the future from non-US companies like MediaTek and Samsung.

If Qualcomm won't get an opportunity to sell to Huawei, the company would lose about USD 8 billion a year.

There are also rumors that Huawei is looking into a partnership with MediaTek in 2020.

To recall, the Chinese tech giant has recently unseated Samsung as the top mobile maker in the world for Q2 2020Huawei is that big of a company for Qualcomm to ignore.
