Despite Huawei facing challenges as the US Trade Ban goes into full effect, all hope is not yet lost for the Chinese tech giant. Following reports that AMD got a license to do business with Huawei, Reuters revealed that Intel has also received a license as well. This has been confirmed by the China Securities Journal, which means some Huawei products—at least its notebooks—will be able to use Intel chips.
The streak of good news does not stop there, as Qualcomm has also applied for a license as well, bringing in the possibility that Huawei might consider using 800 or 700-series Snapdragon processors for its higher end phones since it can no longer produce its in-house Kirin chips for the time being.
Aside from Intel and Qualcomm, SMIC and SK Hynix also applied for a license to do business with Huawei, but there’s no word yet if it has been approved.
