Earlier today there was report saying Huawei cooperated with MediaTek to sustain its chip supply. Now the chip maker responded.
Huawei is in talks with Taiwan's MediaTek and mainland's UNISOC to purchase more chips as an alternative product to sustain its consumer electronics business, sources familiar with the matter said, according to Nikkei Asian Review.
According to thepaper.cn, MediaTek responded that MediaTek has a good and long-term relationship with many domestic mobile phone manufacturers.
Regardless of the partner, MediaTek is committed to the development of chip performance to help end-users enjoy the user experience of high-end or even flagship models at affordable prices, thus promoting the popularity of 5G mobile application experience.
In an interview on May 20, George Zhao, president of Huawei's Honor brand, said that MediaTek has been a partner of Pride's various product lines, "including the early years until now, Pride has been using MediaTek chips. Our strategy has always been this way, we'll work together on 5G SoCs in the future, and MediaTek has always been an honorable partner."
The U.S. Department of Commerce issued a statement on May 15, local time, saying that Huawei's purchase of semiconductors manufactured using U.S. software and technology, including those outside the U.S. but listed on the U.S. Commerce Control List, requires a license from the U.S. government before Huawei and Hays can manufacture foundry products for the company.
