    ZTE has been banned from purchasing any hardware and software from any US based companies. this includes chips from qualcomm and android os from google. Going to make things interesting if they wanted to keep selling phones in the US. If they use chinese hardware, they could go the way of huawei and be a security threat. And what other choice do they have for an operating system?

    ZTE can no longer use US hardware in its products, says US government

    They will most likely be absorbed by a larger Chinese manufacturer which isn't covered by the ban.
