In May, President Donald Trump signed an executive order banning Huawei from doing business with US companies, but eased restrictions on the embattled Chinese phonemaker in late June during trade talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping. The US government will reportedly start approving licenses for Huawei again in the coming weeks.

Neither the White House, Huawei, Intel, Google, Broadcom, Qualcomm, Microsoft nor Micron immediately responded to requests for comment.
