Huawei P30 Pro teardown shows how few parts are from the US

There was suspicion that the majority of parts in the Huawei P30 Pro were all from the US; however, it appears that that is not the case in a new teardown.

This teardown, conducted by Nikkei, shows that there are only 15 US parts in the Huawei P30 Pro. That might sound like a lot, but that’s 15 out of a whopping 1,631 parts. So, not very much.

However, while there are only a couple US parts, it accounts for a pretty expensive portion of the smartphone — $59.36 out of the total $363.86 cost to build the phone. That’s about 16.3 of the total cost.

The most noticeable parts in the Huawei P30 Pro that are from the US are the glass and the DRAM. The former is from Corning, and the latter is sourced from Micron.

So while US components are few, they’re pretty valuable components that could put Huawei in a bind, should the blacklist become official.
