Huawei replaced and redesigned 13,000 components to dodge US sanctions

Huawei has implemented a massive redesign effort to circumvent U.S. sanctions, replacing more than 13,000 components in the process.

The Chinese tech giant has taken drastic measures to continue operating despite the Trump administration’s attempts to restrict its access to U.S. technology, with the company reportedly replacing more than 13,000 components in their products and services.

According to reports, the components, ranging from chips to software, were replaced with those not subject to U.S. sanctions. This feat has been made possible by a massive effort to re-engineer its products and services, which has taken considerable financial and human resources.

The changes have reportedly been made to its network equipment, smartphones, and other consumer electronics. This is in addition to the company’s efforts to build its own operating system, HarmonyOS, which would be an alternative to Android.

The redesign is an impressive feat for Huawei, especially since the U.S. has been aggressively targeting the company with sanctions. These sanctions have resulted in the company being cut off from the U.S. supply chain, which has forced it to find alternative sources.

To further complicate matters, U.S. restrictions have been extended to third party companies that do business with Huawei, making it difficult for the company to find suppliers for its components.

Despite these challenges, Huawei has managed to replace more than 13,000 components, allowing it to continue operating in a world where the U.S. is increasingly hostile towards the company. It remains to be seen if this redesign effort will be enough to keep the company afloat in the long term.
