Breaking: U.S. approved Billions USD worth licenses to Huawei
This is quite interesting news, the U.S. has granted billions of dollars worth of licenses to Huawei from November through April to get access to U.S.-made technologies while being listed under the U.S. Entity List.
According to the document released by the U.S. Congress and seen by Reuters, Huawei has received over 113 export licenses worth 61 billion US dollars were approved for suppliers to ship products. Alongside the Chinese tech giant, the U.S. has also approved, around 188 licenses (worth 42 billion dollars to the Chinese semiconductor maker – SMIC.
The data shows that Huawei’s ratio of license approval was around 69% of the overall request for approval that has been made, while SMIC got approval for 9 out of 10 license applications.
However, the entire process is a bit complicated and there are plenty of senators and politicians that have voted to retain strict restrictions on the Chinese tech maker.
Some of them have raised their doubts on the current U.S. president – Joe Biden on his low-level policy on Huawei and why it’s continues to get exceptions in terms of accessing technologies that could expand its business.
“It is just another example of President Biden not taking the economic and security threat posed by the Chinese Communist Party seriously,” said Republican Senator Marco Rubio.
U.S. Commerce Department Statement:
The Commerce Department has been the center of this entire matter since the beginning and imposed sanctions on Huawei. The commerce department said that the release of an “arbitrary snapshot” of license approvals “risks politicizing the licensing process and misrepresenting the national security determinations” made by the government.
Heart of the matter:
In May 2019, Huawei has been placed under the U.S. entity list, which bans the company from purchasing U.S.-made technologies such as important chipsets and so on. The company has also given up on making new chipsets due to the expansion of restrictions made by the U.S. government.
However, the information regarding the current licenses has not been disclosed but there are certain licenses that have been denied in the process.
Furthermore, a previous report reveals that Of the 113 licenses approved for Huawei after U.S. Entity List, 80 were for non-sensitive goods that only required a license because the recipient was blacklisted. For SMIC, the figure was 121 of 188.
Nope! HarmonyOS is not rolling out in Europe, not currently
In the past, we’ve seen a report that mentions that the HarmonyOS operating system has begun to rollout in Europe. Actually, it’s not true and we’re here to resolve all of the doubts on this matter that have been created so far.
So, there’s a screenshot that has been spreading across the internet regarding the recent rollout of software updates for the HarmonyOS powered devices. The version is HarmonyOS 188.8.131.52, which has been recently initiated in China.
This software package comes with a bunch of new features including the cross-device task center that is now expanding for different Huawei smartphones.
Regarding the software update, is HarmonyOS 184.108.40.206 is rolling out in Europe? The answer is a clear NO!
Everyone knows that the software is currently working as a China-exclusive operating system and has not been announced nor it’s ready to adapt and work on global Huawei devices.
Chinese HarmonyOS Software Build:
However, there are also some facts that you should know regarding the screenshot that has been appeared online. First, the build version has C00E207R5P6 numbers, which is a region code and it belongs to China.
This further clears our doubts regarding the rollout of HarmonyOS in Europe and in the global markets.
HarmonyOS for Global Users:
HarmonyOS is a cross-device operating system and it’s designed to work across various platforms – smartphones, tablets, smartwatches, home devices, IoT, smart consumers, business, and smart cars as well.
Huawei has already upgraded 120 million smartphones in China with this new operating system but remained silent on its global appearance. Therefore, fans are eagerly waiting for their terms to upgrade over the new operating system.
The wait is also fueled by the long haul of any major upgrade for their device that has long been forgotten by the company and needs the nourishment of care such as a major announcement of features respectively.
