The past few weeks have been very bad for Huawei. Now there is some hope. After Samsung forcibly pulled the plug , the Chinese manufacturer got at least some support back.
Huawei can buy displays from Samsung again
On September 15, 2020, the US ban against Huawei was tightened. From then on, nobody was allowed to sell anything to the Chinese manufacturer that was developed using US technology. This is precisely why Huawei has problems procuring components for its smartphones – including memory, displays and processors. At least with the screens there is now redemption. According to Reuters , Samsung Display is said to have received a special permit to deliver screens to Huawei.
This should remove one of the biggest problems for Huawei in the manufacture of new smartphones. There are manufacturers in China who build good displays, but they would have to increase their capacities and could not deliver the quantities that Huawei needs in a short time. In addition, one would have to accept compromises in terms of display quality. Now Huawei can probably access Samsung Display again and buy screens for its smartphones there. Overall, of course, this is a good sign that Huawei is at least not completely cut off from the market.

Samsung also benefits from the Huawei deal
This is of course not only good news for Huawei, but also for Samsung. The Chinese company is one of the largest smartphone manufacturers in the world. With the new deliveries possible, Samsung will again have a partner who will buy a lot and thus generate sales. Huawei gets very good displays and doesn't have to compromise on quality. A classic win-win situation. One can only hope that the problems with the availability of processors for Huawei will also be resolved soon.
