Huawei released a new smartphone that has the U.S. wondering how they did that. A headline from The Washington Post sums it up: “New phone sparks worry China has found a way around U.S. tech limits.”
The phone is called the Mate 60 Pro. It was quietly launched online but demand has been strong in just a few days. Chinese media calls it Huawei’s “first higher-end processor” since U.S. sanctions were announced.
Last year, the U.S. put Huawei under U.S. sanctions that many said would kill the industry or the company. Huawei worked around it and made the phone with Chinese semiconductor firm SMIC.
It sure does feel like the cold war is not doing what diplomats want it to do, doesn’t it?
