According to analysis by UBS and Japanese technology company Fomalhaut Techno Solutions, Huawei's latest phone, the Mate 30, does not contain any components made in the United States.
When the Trump administration's sanctions against Huawei became clear, many people wondered if the Chinese telecommunications giant could create a smartphone without U.S. components. . Today, the answer has been revealed.
Specifically, according to analysis from UBS and technology company Fomalhaut Techno Solutions, the Huawei Mate 30 does not use any US-made components. Huawei seems to have found non-US suppliers for some key components.
For example, they are now using audio amplifiers made by the Dutch NXP instead of Cirrus Logic, and use Wi-Fi and Bluetooth chips from the HiSilicon semiconductor unit itself. MediaTek components are also preferable in this case.
UBS: Huawei's internalization effort looks to have progressed faster than expected, as we now see some Huawei 4G models (Y9 Prime 2019 and Mate 30) which are not using any US components anymore

Despite this, Huawei was unable to fully divest from its US suppliers, even though it was banned from doing business with most suppliers. The Chinese company said it has stockpiled enough components to prevent possible bans. The more advanced version of Mate 30 is the Mate 30 Pro 5G that still uses some US components like Qualcomm chips.
It is not clear if Huawei wants to use all of the chips it is hoarding to build smartphones at this time or for future models. However, the company will continue to apply many major changes in the supply chain to be able to produce the best quality smartphone without US suppliers.
