As is known to all, the US Commerce Department announced last month that it banned American companies from selling products to ZTE in 7 years, causing the ZTE business to be nearly paralyzed, sparking a huge wave between China and the United States and around the world.
Then Trump, President of the United States, told tweet that because ZTE's business was not going properly, too many people lost their jobs. I will provide a way for ZTE to quickly recover the business, and I have told the Ministry of Commerce to finish the work as soon as possible.
Unfortunately, Trump's Twitter did not have a positive impact on ZTE. In May 18th, according to foreign media reports, the House Appropriations Committee, the United States House Appropriation Committee (Appropriations Committee), passed an unanimous amendment that would maintain the sanction of ZTE and refusing his president Trump to defend the troubled Chinese mobile phone manufacturer.
GSMArena says the only choice now for ZTE is to temporarily look for chip supply to Samsung, which is now negotiating with mobile vendors to sell their own Exynos chips. Samsung System LSI director Inyup Kang said in an interview that Samsung is actively communicating with ZTE.
