    Huawei Mate 30 Pro is the first smartphone which does not use any of the American chips. This decision was taken when Trump’s organization bans Huawei Technologies from continuing business with the United States companies. Even though the United States government gives 90 days temporary license, but still, Huawei has found its own way to be successful without the help of the American companies.

    Back in before May 2019, Huawei was happily doing business with the American companies. Most of the technologies used in the phone were supplied by the American tech companies. Even company such as Google was providing the overall Android OS for the Huawei devices. This includes Microsoft too who provides the software for the Huawei laptops and networking equipment.

    Most of the time, Huawei purchases the chips from US companies such as Qorvo and Skyworks. However, after the ban, Huawei started to source the chips from Japan supplier called Murata. After that, Huawei has dropped purchasing from Skyworks. Even its WiFi and Bluetooth chips are not from Broadcom anymore. Now, Huawei is producing its own WiFi and Bluetooth chips.

    Honestly, it is very difficult for Huawei to replace Google. This is something could be the last thing that could ever happen to Huawei. In the Huawei Mate 30, Huawei didn’t use Google Play services. Even it’s Android OS also is an open-source operating system. Rather than the Google Play Store, Huawei is using its own AppGallery app for you to download the app.

    In conclusion, it is really great to see how Huawei has risen back after it was banned by the United States government. Moving forward we can expect the rest of the Huawei smartphones also will be “American Free” products.
