Intel, Qualcomm join Google in cutting off business with Huawei

The Huawei logo.

  • Intel, Qualcomm, Broadcom, and Xilinx have reportedly moved to stop supplying Huawei.
  • The news comes after the U.S. government instituted a trade ban on the Chinese brand.
  • Google has also suspended business with Huawei in the wake of the ban.

Huawei‘s trade ban by the U.S. government has already resulted in Google cutting off the Chinese manufacturer. Now, several tech giants have joined the search company in following the government ban.

Intel, Qualcomm, Broadcom, and Xilinx have all told employees that they won’t supply Huawei, Bloomberg reported, citing people familiar with the actions.

Intel and Qualcomm are perhaps the two most prominent companies taking action here. Intel supplies processors for the Chinese brand’s laptops and servers, while Qualcomm supplies chipsets and modems for its budget phones.

The news comes a short while after Reuters reported that Google has suspended business with Huawei. This means the Chinese brand loses access to Android updates as well as Google services, according to the newswire.

Google has since issued a statement via its Android Twitter account, saying that current Huawei devices will still receive access to services like Google Play and Google Play Protect.

Huawei’s barrage of bad news comes after President Donald Trump signed an executive order effectively banning telecoms equipment from foreign firms deemed a security risk. Shortly after the order was signed, the U.S. Commerce Department added Huawei to its Entity List. The listing means U.S. companies had to seek prior approval from the government in order to have business dealings with the manufacturer.

We’ve contacted Intel and Qualcomm to confirm Bloomberg‘s article, and will update the article accordingly. What do you think of the situation? Give us your thoughts in the comments section below.

Huawei has immediately lost access to Android and Google (Update: Current phones are safe)

Huawei logo MWC

Update, May 19, 2019 (11:50 pm ET): Google has released a new statement regarding the Huawei situation, this time via the Android Twitter account. As seen below, the company states that current Huawei (and likely Honor) phones will continue having access to services like Google Play and security from Google Play Protect.

Google plans to comply with the U.S. government’s order to place Huawei on its Entity List. It’s still unclear what effect this decision will have on the future of Huawei.

Original post, May 19, 2019 (3:14 pm ET): Google has suspended business operations with Huawei effectively immediately, a forced move that will have a dramatic impact on Huawei devices across the globe.

According to Reuters, citing a source close to the matter, Google was forced into suspending business with Huawei that “requires the transfer of hardware and software products.”

“Huawei Technologies Co Ltd will immediately lose access to updates to the Android operating system, and the next version of its smartphones outside of China will also lose access to popular applications and services including the Google Play Store and Gmail app,” Reuters noted.

This effectively means no further Android security updates for devices new and old, including the recent P30 and P30 Pro, Mate 20 Pro, and many more.

Google’s actions come after the U.S. Commerce Department’s announcement on Wednesday, which placed Huawei and some 68 affiliates on a so-called Entity List, a trade blacklist, following an executive order signed by U.S. President Trump.

This is the same list that ZTE was added to and subsequently removed from, over the course of 2018, which caused it massive disruption. Huawei is now effectively forbidden from buying parts and components from U.S. companies without U.S. government approval – which includes Android.

This is, of course, a massive blow if the story is accurate. One of Huawei’s arms, its HiSilicon chip division, had stated it has “long been ready” for any ban, while Huawei has previously mentioned it has been preparing for six years or more for any ban of Android. Honor, a sub-brand of Huawei, had been set to launch the Honor 20 on Tuesday May 21, in London — it’s unclear what will now happen.

The Chinese giant said in a statement earlier this week that it was “against the decision made by the Bureau of Industry and Security of the U.S. Department of Commerce.”

Android Authority has contacted Huawei and Google for comment.

This is a developing story.

Get money for playing a racing game with Gameloft’s ‘Asphalt esports Series’

This is a screenshot of Asphalt 9, one of the best arcade games for android

Gameloft and Xiaomi’s gaming-focused Black Shark brand today announced the “Asphalt esports Series,” a new esports tournament for Asphalt 9: Legends players. This is Gameloft’s first esports tournament for its long-running Asphalt series.

Editor’s Pick

The first qualification rounds for the tournament start May 20, with the top-ranked players from nine different countries — France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Spain, the U.K., and the U.S. — selected based on their overall rankings. The players will then travel to Germany, where Gameloft will hold the grand finale in August during Gamescom.

The winner of the grand finale will win 20,000 euros (~$22,355).

Gameloft is partnering with esports organization ESL to put together the event. Gameloft is also partnering with Black Shark to make the recently-released Black Shark 2 smartphone the official gaming device of the tournament.

With the Asphalt series being as popular as it is, it’s surprising to see Gameloft just now announcing a tournament for Asphalt 9: Legends. Then again, esports is expected to garner $1.65 billion in revenue by 2021. Also, the growing number of spectators is making esports less of a risky financial venture for companies.

Report: Samsung and Huawei agree to settle their smartphone patent disputes

Huawei P30 Pro vs Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus back (20 of 60)

Samsung and Huawei have reportedly agreed to finally bury the hatchet and settle their years-long dispute over smartphone patents. The Guangdong High People’s Court in southern China mediated the settlement, according to Nikkei.

The terms of the alleged settlement have not been made public, but it’s believed that they include some sort of cross-licensing patent deal. The patents that are part of the supposed deal include those for basic technologies, with no further specifics mentioned.

It’s suggested that Samsung and Huawei are only settling now due to them wanting to pour more resources into the stagnant smartphone market. Even though Huawei now owns a company-record 17 percent of the market, Q1 2019 marked the sixth straight quarter of declining overall smartphone shipments. Meanwhile, Samsung saw a 10 percent decrease in market share year-over-year.

Editor’s Pick

Whatever the reason for a settlement, Samsung and Huawei are likely happy to be done with patent disputes. The two companies have been in embroiled in a legal war against each other since 2016, when Huawei filed several patent infringement lawsuits against Samsung in the U.S. and China.

In January 2018, a Chinese court ruled in favor of Huawei and ordered Samsung to halt sales of offending products. By then, Samsung counter-sued Huawei with a patent lawsuit of its own. Huawei responded to the counter-suit with lawsuits in two cities in China.

The tit-for-tat filings escalated very quickly in a matter of years, but at least it’s seemingly coming to an end.

Download the colorful new OnePlus 7 Pro wallpapers here

Even though the OnePlus 7 Pro costs less than your typical modern flagship smartphone, you’ll still have to pay at least $669 to pick one up. Instead of paying almost seven Benjamins to get the firm’s latest and greatest, just download the phone’s wallpapers and not pay a dime.

According to XDA-Developers, the OnePlus 7 Pro includes 16 static wallpapers and eight live wallpapers. Most of the wallpapers feature swirling clouds and a glossy combination of colors, with some Fnatic wallpapers also thrown into the mix.

Editor’s Pick

Keep in mind that the live wallpapers are MP4 files. Some apps can help you set video files as live wallpapers if you’re not using a OnePlus device. If you’re using a OnePlus device, there’s an APK that can natively install live wallpapers if your device is running Android 9 Pie.

Downloading the live wallpapers won’t get you the OnePlus 7 Pro’s pop-up selfie camera, 90Hz OLED display, or three rear cameras. That said, downloading wallpapers is a great way to reinvigorate and spruce up your smartphone experience.

You can grab some of the wallpapers below and grab all of the phone’s static and live wallpapers at the links further below.

Forget about foldable phones: Here’s the first foldable PC

The Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X are making foldable phones a reality, but Lenovo is taking things a step further by announcing the world’s first foldable PC.

Part of Lenovo’s Thinkpad X1 line of PCs, the device features a 13.3-inch LG-made OLED display with 2K resolution and a 4:3 aspect ratio. Because the device folds inwards, you theoretically don’t have to worry about the display getting scuffed in your bag.

That said, the quality of the display is the larger concern. Based on impressions from outlets that went hands-on with a functional prototype, the display was dim and had poor viewing angles. Keep in mind that it’s unfinished hardware — Lenovo hopes to launch its foldable PC some time in 2020.

The Lenovo foldable PC. Lenovo

Continuing with the hardware, Lenovo said an Intel processor powers the foldable PC. The company is aiming for a full day of use, with planned support for cellular data. Additionally, the device comes bundled with a Wacom pen and separate keyboard to improve productivity.

As promising as the hardware is, the Galaxy Fold reminded us that foldable devices are still in their infancy. Lenovo told The Verge that it’s working to avoid the Galaxy Fold’s issues. The company is also doubling the testing on its device’s hinge to ensure functionality and reliability.

Editor’s Pick

Software is a different story. Even though the device currently being shown off to press runs Windows 10, Lenovo said the final version won’t run Microsoft’s OS. That opens up more possibilities for software to better take advantage of the foldable PC’s unique form-factor.

Lenovo didn’t talk pricing or exact availability, but don’t expect the foldable PC to come cheap. The Galaxy Fold starts at $1,980, so a price above $2,000 isn’t out of the realm of possibility.
