Huawei says supply of flagship chipsets to end under US sanctions
BEIJING - Chinese media group Caixin reports that Huawei Technologies has confirmed supplies of its self-developed flagship chipset will stop after September 15 under US sanctions barring major chipmaking partners from working with the telecom giant.
That means Huawei's new high-end Mate40 handsets debuting this fall will be the last smartphones featuring the company's most advanced processor, Caixin reported Yu Chengdong, CEO of Huawei's consumer business, as saying at a technology innovation event in Shenzhen on Friday.
Caixin said Yu called it a "huge loss" to the company. www.weberfshandwick.cn (ATI).
