Due to the US government's ban, many companies suspended their partnership with Huawei. Even the President Trump's ban also makes Huawei lose membership in several technology standards and associations.
Earlier last week, the SD Memory Card Association silently removed Huawei from its membership list before confirming it with the media. Recently, however, the name Huawei reappeared on the SD Memory Card Association website.
A Huawei representative confirmed that they once again became members of the SD Memory Card Association. However, he did not provide more details regarding this incident. The SD memory card association has not given any information.
SD Memory Card Association was founded on January 28, 2000 by Panasonic, SanDisk and Toshiba, setting new standards for SD memory cards. Currently, the SD Memory Card Association has more than 1000 members who are large and small companies that produce SD memory cards and devices that support read / write. To be able to produce devices that use SD memory cards, manufacturers will be required to be members of the SD Memory Card Association.
Therefore, if the SD Card Association, Huawei will not be able to produce SD memory cards and Huawei and Honor devices in the future will not use microSD memory cards anymore. Huawei also has a separate memory card standard, NM Card, but only supports high-end smartphone models.
Huawei also has a lot of trouble to be solved to avoid trouble for upcoming smartphones, but successful settlement with SD Memory Card Association also helps the company reduce a concern.
