Back into the fold: Huawei has regained its membership to the SD Association

Huawei has been facing its fair share of challenges as a result of the ongoing trade dispute between the Trump administration and China. Following its addition to a US blacklist that prevents US companies from supplying any products or services to the company, many of the American partners it depends on for critical aspects of its products, such as Google, Microsoft, Qualcomm and others, quickly cut ties with the company.

While it has been a tough few weeks for Huawei, the company did have some good news to celebrate this week. The SD Association, a standards body that governs the use of SD cards, has silently added Huawei back to its list of members, after having banned the Chinese giant just a few days ago.

In practice, what this means is that the company will hopefully be able to support and add microSD cards to its future products. Its current products were, of course, going to remain functional but the company's removal from the SD Association had left the fate of memory expansion on future Huawei products up in the air. Hopefully, its reinstatement dispels those concerns.

The change was officially confirmed by a Huawei spokesperson, but the company has remained mum on any further details on how it managed to find its way back into the fold, or how the change relates to the SD Association's compliance with the US Entity List.
