Huawei is facing a tough few days up ahead. The company’s tussle with the US government has already affected its business with Google and Qualcomm. And now, Huawei runs the risk of losing display supply from LG and Samsung. The deadline for the deal ends on September 15, after which Huawei and Co. will have to figure out other partners to source display materials.

As quoted in this Reuters report, both Samsung and LG are part of the trade restrictions imposed on Huawei. And more importantly, the supply faces the heat because the chip powering the panel gets shipped from the US. Which won’t be happening anymore. And the company isn’t considered to be a big loss for the vendors, which is why they are more than happy to meet the demands of the government.
