It will be difficult, with a Trump administration that still proves reluctant to want to retrace its steps. This is demonstrated by the proposed law with which block the production of chipsets by HiSilicon. But you know, the world of smartphones is not only composed of the software component, but also of the hardware component.

This is exactly what Richard said, answering the question of how much camera will be a challenge for mobile innovation.
