The trade war between China and the United States threatens Huawei with a shortage of American components for the production of smartphones. Check the relevance of this statement, the journalists took the Nikkei – one of the largest Asian publications. They completely disassembled the flagship of the Chinese brand, to find out how the assembly of the model depends on the sanction components. The results of the “opening” were quite unexpected.
According to the results of the complete disassembly of the device, published by the Nikkei, the number of components of the American production in the flagship Huawei was only 0.9% of the total. The list includes a Micron RAM chip, semiconductors from Skyworks and Qorvo, as well as Corning tempered glass from Gorilla Glass.

More than half of the components (53.2%) accounted for Japanese suppliers, about a third (34.4%) – for Korean vendors. It is noteworthy that only 4.9% turned out to be “native” elements in the composition of the Chinese flagship. In total, more than 1,600 different parts were used to assemble the gadget.
Despite the small number of US components, Huawei will have to look for an alternative to them after the US sanctions come into force. According to the New York Times, some American companies continue to trade with a partner, using gaps in national legislation.
Earlier, major chip makers have already stood up for Huawei in front of the US authorities, and representatives of the administrative and budgetary management of the White House have postponed part of the ban on trade with the Chinese brand for two years.
