Only 0.9% of Huawei’s Latest Flagship Is Made in the US
Huawei is no longer allowed to use software and hardware developed by American firms following an executive order signed by US President Donald Trump in mid-May, so the company is now looking for alternatives to build its devices using components made elsewhere.
And according to a teardown made by Nikkei, it may not be so difficult for Huawei to reduce reliance on American companies, as they account for only 0.9% of the parts used in the company’s latest flagship, the P30 Pro.
Nikkei says only 15 components used on the P30 Pro come from the United States, and these include the DRAM supplied by Micron, the Gorilla protection glass developed by Corning, and the printed circuit board made by Compeq.
The total cost of the parts built in the United States is $59.36, out of a final component cost of $363.83.
