US Commerce Secretary Gina Lamondo has become the subject of mockery in China as Huawei, a Chinese telecommunications equipment company, managed to release a smartphone with advanced semiconductors despite US sanctions. Fake advertisement videos and photos featuring Lamondo as a ‘public relations ambassador’ for Huawei smartphones have been circulating on Chinese social media platforms. In these videos, Lamondo is seen claiming to be tough on China before posing with Huawei’s latest smartphone, the Mate 60 Pro. The video was even posted on China’s Central TV’s version of TikTok, suggesting some level of official approval. Minister Lamondo’s former Twitter account also added fuel to the fire by posting sarcastic comments congratulating him for being a Huawei model.
This incident occurred as Huawei surprised the international community with the launch of their new smartphone, the Mate 60 Pro, which boasts a 7-nanometer processor. Given the high-intensity US sanctions, the fact that Huawei was able to mass-produce this processor has raised eyebrows. It is widely known that state-of-the-art semiconductor production equipment is required for such a process. Furthermore, the Mate 60 Pro is seen as a symbol of China’s technological development amidst the ongoing sanctions imposed by the US.
In contrast, the US has initiated an investigation into the 7-nanometer process processor used in the Mate 60 Pro. There are concerns that China’s semiconductor export control may have failed or that certain semiconductor companies may have violated regulations, allowing China to produce the smartphone despite the sanctions.
This situation sheds light on the ongoing tension between the US and China, particularly regarding Huawei’s alleged involvement in spying activities. However, it is important to note that this article aims to present the facts objectively, without taking sides or promoting any specific narrative.

This meme spread late last month amid China’s surprise launch of a new smartphone, the Mate 60 Pro, with a 7-nanometer (billionth of a meter) processor inside.
The international community is paying attention to how Huawei was able to mass produce this processor under the high intensity US sanctions as the process is only possible when it has state-of-the-art semiconductor production equipment 7 -nano is usually possible. .
Previously, in 2019, the United States began imposing sanctions on the Chinese government for stealing confidential information by installing hacking tools on Huawei telecommunications equipment.
WP analyzed that the Mate 60 Pro released in the middle of this is considered a product that symbolizes the technological development of the country in China.
On the other hand, the United States investigated the smartphone’s 7-nano process processor on the same day when the possibility that China’s semiconductor export control to China failed or that some semiconductor companies may have violated regulations by that China produced the Mate 60 Pro in the midst of high intensity sanctions. He said it had started.
