It seems that even without American components, ZTE can continue to issue smartphones without problems. True, former American partners will have to be replaced, but Some foreign manufacturers have already announced willingness to cooperate with ZTE. One of them - Taiwanese developer of microcircuits MediaTek.
After entering into US sanctions, the Taiwanese government ordered local companies to trade with ZTE only after agreement with authorities. The company MediaTek and made and have already received a " green light " .
AT The Taiwanese Bureau of Foreign Trade added that such same requests filed and other manufacturers. They say that the agency promised " not to obstruct exports " .
So now in smartphones of the Chinese company processors American Qualcomm can replace the chipsets MediaTek.
But until it is unclear what in ZTE will do with OS Android , which because of the sanctions, too, may be banned.
Recall, the US " punished " ZTE for prohibited trade with Iran and North Korea. " The verdict " - 7 years without accessories and software of American production. So now Qualcomm is not ZTE will be able to supply its mobile processors.
