Huawei set to beat Apple with world's top chip despite US ban

Chinese company keeps up effort to cut American dependence

TAIPEI -- Huawei Technologies is set to leapfrog Samsung Electronics, Apple and Qualcomm with the introduction of two of the world's most advanced chips in the coming months, despite the U.S. crackdown on exports to China's flagship tech company, sources familiar with the matter told the Nikkei Asian Review.

The move to introduce an advanced mobile chip and a processor chipset with built in 5G modem comes as many observers doubt China's ability to close the gap with the U.S. on high tech semiconductors.
