Future Huawei phones will no longer receive SD cards due to trade ban

Huawei has been excluded from the SD Association, the association that sets the standard for the use of micro-SD cards. As a result, future phones from the company may no longer be able to use external memory cards.

The SD Association has removed the Chinese smartphone manufacturer from its membership list. The independent foundation tells Android Authority that the decision meets the requirements of the US government. Earlier this month, it banned American companies from further trading with Huawei. As a result, the future of Android on Huawei devices is uncertain.

The SD Association’s decision won’t affect the company’s current phones, but it may affect future ones. Companies must work with the SD Association to implement the SD standard in devices. Huawei does not want to speculate about the future yet.

The decision does not necessarily have to be a problem for Huawei. The company has been working for some time on its own alternative to micro-sd called Nano Memory. That is a smaller form of micro-sd that can be expanded via the SIM slot. The Mate 20 Pro, among others, uses that memory expansion.
