The news comes Huawei plans to launch its HarmonyOS platform on its smartphones and laptops in a bid to replace Microsoft's Windows and Google's Android amid the Trump administration's acrimonious trade war with Beijing.
The US Department of Commerce place Huawei, ZTE, and over 70 firms on an Entity List in May 2019 and extended it a further year in May this year, citing national security concerns.
The Federal Communications Commission also declared Huawei and ZTE national security risks over alleged ties to the Chinese Communist Party and military, without providing details or evidence for the claims.
Further rows erupted after US president Donald Trump signed an executive order forcing TikTok owner ByteDance to sell its US operations to Microsoft or other domestic tech firm, citing claims that the company could harvest data for Beijing.
Huawei, the Chinese government and TikTok owner ByteDance have slammed the accusations as false and demanded to see evidence, with the latter launching two lawsuits to protect employee jobs in the United States.
