This comes after Huawei”s ban to do business with US companies was extended for another year, and the US Commerce Department announced new rules which severely limits Huawei”s access to chipsets, reports GizmoChina.

As part of new trade sanctions, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC) will no longer be allowed to supply components to Huawei.

Huawei has also previously worked with third-party mobile chip suppliers, but the previous share is small and the number of chips it has purchased abroad will grow significantly this year, especially for MediaTek, the world”s second-largest supplier of mobile phone chips after Qualcomm.
