Microsoft president and chief legal official Brad Smith said Huawei is being treated in a un-American way by the US government.

Huawei Mate 30 series will first be sold in China, says CEO

In a recent interview with Bloomberg Businessweek, Smith said the Chinese telecom giant should be allowed to buy US technology, including software from his company.

Such actions shouldn’t be taken without a “sound basis in fact, logic, and the rule of law,” says Smith in an interview with Bloomberg Businessweek, adding that Microsoft has asked U.S. regulators to explain themselves.

“Oftentimes, what we get in response is, ‘Well, if you knew what we knew, you would agree with us,’” he says. “And our answer is, ‘Great, show us what you know so we can decide for ourselves. That’s the way this country works.’” The U.S.

Microsoft is serving Windows operating system to Huawei since the launching of its laptop series but due to the US trade ban on Huawei, both companies are unable to do further deals.

Trump should know better, Smith says, citing Trump’s experience in the hotel industry. “To tell a tech company that it can sell products, but not buy an operating system or chips, is like telling a hotel company that it can open its doors, but not put beds in its hotel rooms or food in its restaurant. Either way, you put the survival of that company at risk.”

Back in May Huawei was prohibited from buying US firms technologies by the Entity-List signed by US President Donald Trump.

Background Story:

In May 2019, Huawei was added to the U.S. Entity List, the list is officially designed to counter Huawei’s surge in both network and smartphone business.

Aside from other crucial components, Huawei felt an immense shortage of chipset and Google proprietary software services. Even after these challenges, Huawei established its supply chain with different global suppliers. However, the U.S. expanded the reach of Entity List in 2020 and barred the company from printing new chipsets via chip makers such as TSMC.

This forced Huawei to drop manufacturing of its flagship chipset – Kirin by the end of 2020. Thereafter, Huawei consuming the chip stack that it has gather before the last round of sanctions.

During the launch of HarmonyOS on June 2, Huawei officially announced new devices with Qualcomm chipsets. Later on, the Huawei P50 Pro flagship was also unveiled with Qualcomm processors. Amid all of the issues, Huawei’s new phones also cannot access the 5G network, which has become a major lack of selling point for its smartphone despite all of the power-packed specifications.
