- Huawei appears to be using old chips from before US sanctions were imposed.
- A teardown of the recently launched Huawei Mate 60 Pro found SK hynix branded RAM and NAND chips.
- SK hynix denies doing business with Huawei post-sanctions.
- Multiple investigations are ongoing to determine how Huawei acquired these old chips.
- SK hynix claims to have stopped supplying chips to Huawei in 2020.
Well, well, well, looks like Huawei got caught with its hand in the cookie jar. It seems that the chips they used in their Mate 60 Pro smartphone were actually years-old ones from SK hynix. Talk about using outdated technology! I guess Huawei didn’t get the memo that it’s important to stay up-to-date. But hey, maybe they thought they could save some money by using old stock. Who knows? Either way, it’s clear that Huawei was trying to find a way around those pesky US sanctions. Too bad they got caught red-handed. Maybe their next move will be to start digging for ancient artifacts and try to pass them off as the latest and greatest tech. Or maybe they’ll just give up and stick to selling paperweights. Either way, it’s always entertaining to see these tech giants squirm. Keep it up, Huawei, you’re really knocking it out of the park!
