The phone is now being made without any US-sourced components at all, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Huawei untrue non-American suppliers for parts, according to an analysis by UBS and Japanese tech lab Fomalhaut Techno Solutions. It apparently replaced Qorvo and Skyworks power amplifiers with in-house ones from HiSilicon, and replaced Texas-based audio chip maker Cirrus Logic with Dutch matter NXP.

It’s part of a concentrated effort to cut down iHuawei’s reliance on US suppliers, the report noted.

The US Commerce Department blacklisted Huawei after a May executive order from President Donald Trump that manufactured US companies to get licenses to do matter with the maker of phones and network equipment, which prompted national guarantee concerns due to its cozy relationship with the Chinese government. Huawei has repeatedly denied the accusation that it’s understanding Beijing’s thumb.
