The SD Association confirmed Engadget that Huawei was dropped from the trading group to comply with recent orders from the US Department of Commerce. Last week, the government agency Huawei and 70 of its affiliates placed on its "Entity List", a decision that means the government believes Huawei can undermine US interests. It also does not entitle the company to receive goods or financing without the government's approval. That, in addition to the decree signed by President Trump, which prohibits the sale and use of telecommunications equipment by companies constituting "unacceptable" risks to national security, has given Huawei a significant binding effect.
Huawei told Android Authority that its customers will be able to continue to buy and use SD and microSD cards with its products at the moment. It's not clear how the move will affect your company's future phones and devices, but Huawei has moved away from the format in favor of its own "Nano Memory Cards."
Being lost by the SD Association is certainly a blow to Huawei, but it is a relatively small one given some of the other hits the company has taken in the last week. Google suspended Android support for corporate phones and chipmakers Intel, Qualcomm and AMD have cut off supplies for the Chinese tech maker.
