The USA banned Huawei! This news spread like a wildfire all over the internet. The trade war between the USA and China cost Huawei losing all the privileges to make trades with US-based companies. Thus, the companies started pulling out business and service with Huawei. You all must have also heard Google giving a 90 days reprieve to Huawei and blacklisting it.
But what is exactly the current status? Huawei has grabbed a good number of its smartphone users in Nepal. Similarly, the company has a massive user base in China, Europe, and other parts of the world.
Huawei representative has confirmed that the company never lost a membership with SD Association. In fact, it was temporarily modified to ensure compliance with the U.S. Department of Commerce order. Thus, the company had removed Huawei’s name from its membership list. But now the name is back on the list. Further details regarding this have not been revealed yet so you need to wait for the updates, we’ll get back to you soon.
The same had happened with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Association as they had also removed Huawei’s from their membership lists. And now the name is reinstated.
What’s with Google?
Google has been providing its Android operating system service along with Google Play; Map etc. Despite the Android system at its core itself is open source, losing the capability to deal with services like Google Play and Map and the platform itself is definitely a huge deal. After the US Government order, Google also blacklisted the company giving them a 90 days temporary reprieve period.
But what we really want to tell you here is that Google will still be providing software and security updates to Huawei.
With this new development, it looks like the Huawei Mate 20 Pro users will still get the Android Q taste. And what’s more? Huawei has been working on its own plan that shows that Android is no longer an option, especially for the OS part. It’s reported that its new mobile operating system will be called Hong Meng in China dubbed as Ark OS for the global markets. But for any smartphone, access to a large number of apps is important, thus Ark OS or whatever the name will be might be able to run the existing Android applications.
In short, it’s still difficult to say what the future holds for Huawei and its state with the US Government. These are all we have for now and stay with us for more of these updates. For more answers about the questions, you can click here.
