Samsung reportedly in talks with ZTE to sell its Exynos chips following U.S ban

Samsung reportedly in talks with ZTE to sell its Exynos chips following U.S ban

The ZTE Blade S7.

While U.S President Trump is still trying to get ZTE "back in business", Samsung may offer a faster and better solution: buy its Exynos chips. 

ZTE was recently banned from purchasing Qualcomm chips and other U.S software after it was found to have illegally sold U.S tech to North Korea and Iran. "Major operating activities" of the company have ceased in the U.S following the 7-year ban. 

While it remains unclear whether ZTE will eventually purchase Exynos chipsets, the current situation still presents a valuable opportunity for Samsung to further establish itself as a dominant chipmaker in the market.
