Following the US government's decision to block Huawei, many companies announced they would no longer cooperate with the Chinese company. First of all Google, banned the company from receiving its future upgrades Android. But other major companies, such as Intel, ARM and Panasonic, have decided to stop supplying Huawei with equipment.
Now we have a new addition to the list of companies that have blocked Huawei. The SD Association, which decides on microSD and SD cards, has decided to discontinue relations with the Chinese company. This means that Huawei will not be able to have microSD cards on its future devices.
According to information, the SD Association has removed Huawei from the list of companies that can use microSD and SD cards, at the request of President Trump.
Of course, this decision concerns future devices. Customers who already have a Huawei device will not be affected by this decision. Cards will continue to function normally on existing devices. However, future devices will not be able to use them.
Beyond the SD Association and the rest of the companies, it seems that the Wi-Fi Alliance has set some limitations on Huawei. Wi-Fi Alliance sets standards for Wi-Fi devices across the industry. According to information, the company has "temporarily removed" Huawei from the list of supported companies. This decision was taken once again as a result of President Trump's orders.
We have already mentioned that Huawei has designed one of her own operating system, which can replace Android on Appliances her. Blocking it from microSD and SD cards could be a big blow. But the Chinese company seems to have been prepared for this too. It has its own Nano memory cards, which it can use on its new devices. These memory cards are of course smaller than microSD cards.
