current Huawei users as well as those who have already released models in stock don’t have to worry about any effect on them. Rather the worry is for Huawei which is in preparation to release new models.
Google will stop supplying Huawei with updates to Android, and it does not allow Huawei to keep offering phones with Google apps on them, such as Gmail, Google Maps, YouTube, and the Google Play Store.
Huawei spokeswoman begs to differ and says the company will still be rolling out its own updates.
"Huawei will continue to provide security updates and after sales services to all existing Huawei and Honor smartphone and tablet products covering those have been sold or still in stock globally," the spokesperson announced.
Even though Android is an open source software and any developer can access it, some features like Google Play are only used with a special agreement with Google. Therefore, Huawei will access Google’s open source Android but it won’t be able to provide the important google services like maps and play store which make Android phones preferable in most markets.
But Huawei seemed prepared for this as it has been developing its own operating system named Hong Meng. Since the announcement of the new operating system, critics seemed to be skeptic about the success as previous attempts to do so remain in vain.
But Huawei is not in the US market only for Android OS, but also important inputs like integrated circuit chips which revolutionized the mobile technology. Other suppliers of Huawei are also refraining from any activities linking them to the second biggest smartphone seller in the world.
With these all developments going on, the 90 days grace period given for Huawei made many hopeful that the US and the Chinese mobile maker will be able to resolve their issue resulting in the simmering down of all the tension.
What Biruk also believes is that Huawei would opt for negotiations resulting in the resolution of the problem.
Unless some solutions are found, many fear that this might escalate the trade war already being waged between the US and China resulting in a possible recession globally as soon as the upcoming 2020 US Presidential election.
Currently, Huawei is said to have halted productions and this might affect its growing market share. For instance, the release of a new product, Honor 20 Pro, was halted due to the sanction.
