who cares about the nation behind "the wall".
hope rest of the world (not the one constantly starting wars) will be able to appreciate full scope of zte products.
This is not only the negative news for ZTE, they've been discovered as the biggest lier in the security updates together with TCL, as other OEMs. And Mediatek based phones are the worst, missing a average of 9.7 patches. Telling you that your phones is updated when is a lie. HTC, LG, Motorola and Huawei aren't good updating too.

This will implies find new modems too, not only SoC, as Qualcomm and Intel ones are banned for them. Perhaps Huawei want sell them some of their Cat6 modems.
Whats with america's attitude with private companies? Its treating qualcomm as its own govt owned subsidiary. They decide who can buy it. They decide who can buy from them. Its seems america wants to compete with china even in terms of exerting control over industries
