Huawei has set up a website to perk up smartphone buyers regarding the Android and Android Q status on its devices. At first, the company announced Android Q in a tweet and set up a dedicated website for all the relevant information as well as FAQs.
Similarly, Honor’s internal sources also ensure regarding Android Q in its newly announced Honor 20 series phones.
The website states, “All Huawei smartphones and tablets will continue to receive security patches and Android updates. Anyone who has already bought, or is about to buy a Huawei smartphone, can continue to access the world of apps as they have always done. All devices continue to be covered by our manufacturer’s warranty and will receive full-service support.”
But why these perk ups? Well, there still are confusions regarding how the “Entity List” ban will affect the devices that are already launched and how the Google-certified devices will work.
The FAQ page gives even better insight into how Huawei is concentrated on breaking rumors and speculation. The FAQs however slightly pulls back on the earlier bluff regarding Android Q.
The company states, “we are confident that our most popular devices including the P30 series, will be able to access Android Q.” It also ensures that it will update 17 recent phones to Android Q and the preparations have already begun. And the first waves of these devices include Mate 10 Pro, Mate 20 Pro, P30 Pro, Mate 20 X 5G, Porsche Design Mate RS, and Mate 10.
On the Honor side, it’s preparing for the Android Q update for its Honor 20 series smartphones. The company tells that, “This is why Honor is selling the device confidently in the global market.”
The temporary deferment until August 21 seems to provide a reasonable space to Huawei and Google in order to work on the Android Q update for Huawei’s most important devices.
And what the future holds for these company’s and more specifically Huawei? It’s still skeptical. However, for the existing and prospective Huawei users, the short-term condition seems positive in terms of software updates as well as support.
