Out of the 1631 components on the four-month-old Huawei P30 Pro, a mere 15 come from the United States, Nikkei Asian Review has revealed. That’s around 0.9% of the total number of parts required to make the handset function as intended, with all of them available from manufacturers in other countries for around the same price.
Nikkei didn’t divulge all of the components that derive from the United States, though it did name the five most essential: DRAM from Micron, Gorilla Glass from Corning, and communication semiconductors from Skyworks Solutions and Qorvo — coming in at a total of $54.66 per device, as outlined in the table below.
So, what does that mean for Huawei? Well, should President Trump decide to reinstate his Administration’s trade ban, the firm could source the components needed for the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro elsewhere, while bundling its Android alternative on new variations, also offering existing customers the choice to switch.
