With the United States ban still on Huawei, the company is facing lots of problems ranging from partnerships with components providers to making sales in market. And to survive, Huawei had bought lots of components to keep it afloat for a while.
But, it seems the company stocks is fast running out and needs to buy more. Which is why, the Chinese tech giant is sticking to buying Qualcomm flagship chipsets without 5G support. Buying 4G only chipsets seems like the only way out for Huawei right now.

This is because the US sanction on the company prohibit it from having access to anything with 5G. And this is why Huawei used the 4G version of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chip in its recently released Huawei P50. A new report that appears today has shown that Huawei might actually be able to buy from 4G chip.
According to a report from Digital Chat Station, Huawei is allowed to buy allot of 4G version of the Snapdragon 778G chips from Qualcomm. It also appears that in the future, the company will still be able to buy the 4G version of the Snapdragon 898 chipset.

We don’t know which Huawei smartphones will be using the Snapdragon 778G and Snapdragon 898 yet. But, it is safe to assume that the Huawei Mate 50 or any other Huawei flagship smartphone will make use of the Snapdragon 898. While the Huawei Nova 9 might rock the Snapdragon 778G.
A report had earlier stated that the Huawei Nova 9 series will debut in September and that it won’t have support for 5G connectivity. Huawei has been to known to make really good phones with advance tech, but not having the next gen network technology might affect the sales of the future products.

Although 4G network is still very relevant today, but most users are upgrading to smartphones with support for 5G. So, if Huawei push out smartphones without 5G and the company is faced with slow sales, then we’re right back where we began with the United State ban.
The release of the Huawei Nova 9 without 5G will give us an idea how people will receive these 4G only devices from Huawei. With competition heating up from Xiaomi and OPPO, Huawei is in a tight spot right now and no thanks to the US ban.
