Google suspends Huawei: Reuters news agency, citing its source, reported disturbing news about Huawei’s future smartphones.
According to published information, Google suspended cooperation with a Chinese manufacturer due to the fact that the US Department of Commerce accused the company of espionage and announced that it was going to include Huawei and 70 of its subsidiaries in the blacklist.
Reuters claims that the “Corporation of Good” will cease to provide hardware and software products, which means that future Huawei smartphones will lose the Play Store application store and Google services. However, Huawei will continue to use Android as the primary OS, but this will only be the open source version (AOSP).
Naturally, the decision is not yet final and the situation with Huawei can be resolved in the same way as it was with ZTE. The Chinese manufacturer will have to pay a fine and, possibly, change the manual. We will monitor the situation and be sure to let you know as soon as more information appears.
Google confirmed rumors. The company also announced that Google Play services and the Google Play Protect protection feature will continue to function on all existing Huawei devices.
For Huawei users’ questions regarding our steps to comply w/ the recent US government actions: We assure you while we are complying with all US gov’t requirements, services like Google Play & security from Google Play Protect will keep functioning on your existing Huawei device.
