Xiaomi was labeled a national security threat in the United States during the waning days of the Trump administration, following similar action against Huawei and ZTE. The company filed a lawsuit against the US government in order to prevent the ban, and on May 12, both parties have reached a settlement that will remove the technology giant from being blacklisted altogether. Now, Xiaomi has published a statement on the litigation, announcing that the US District Court of Columbia issued a final order, formally lifting all restrictions.
The drama between the U.S. government and Huawei is unending. Following last week's racketeering charges against the company and its CFO, Reuters is reporting that the U.S. Government may force foreign chip manufacturers, including companies like TSMC, to seek a U.S. License before doing business with Huawei. In effect, this would allow the U.S. to block the shipment of phone-critical components to Huawei.
