Intel, Qualcomm, Broadcom, and Xilinx have reportedly moved to stop supplying Huawei. Google has also suspended business with Huawei in the wake of the ban.

According to Bloomberg, semiconductor companies Intel, Qualcomm, Xilinx and Broadcom will no longer supply Huawei until further notice. Another report says that Google has suspended some trade with Huawei, leaving it with access only to the open-source version of Android.

    Science publisher IEEE lifts ban on Huawei reviewers
    https://techcrunch.com/2019/06/02/ieee-lifts-huawei-curbs/

    After a temporary ban, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, commonly known as the IEEE, announced on Monday it has lifted curbs on editors and peer-reviewers that work for Huawei and the Chinese firm’s affiliates.

    The reversal is yet another example of the regulatory murkiness in the U.S.-China trade negotiations.

    The phrase “Android Green Alliance” has been observed repeatedly in Ark OS’s screenshots. This Android Green Alliance is nothing but tying up with some well-known companies like Alibaba and Tencent. The companies formed this alliance some years ago to set standards for the apps.

    Huawei hasn’t announced the debut date of this new OS but it is planning to bring the OS into the market before the end of its 90-day timeline.
