According to a report revealed by Reuters, Google will suspend any business they have with the mobile manufacturer Huawei, this would mean that the brand’s phones would stop receiving any Android update immediately. In addition, future mobile phones presented by the Chinese giant would not have Google Play Store.
While Android is an open-source operating system, which mobile manufacturers can use for free, Google charges these companies so they can make use of their Android application store and other apps such as Gmail.
Google would be taking these extreme measures, after the US president, Donald Trump, executed an executive order to declare a national emergency for threats to the technology of his country. In addition, this order limits the parts manufacturers to sell any component or software to Huawei without first obtaining a license from the United States government.
In spite of being unpleasant news for Huawei, it is not something that takes them by surprise, and for some time they have been preparing for the actions that the government of the United States would be taking, that is why they manufacture their own processors and have worked on the development of what would be your alternative to Android. However, this could delay the launch of the Huawei Mate 30 and the Mate 30 Pro.
The CEO of the company, Ren Zhengfei, has ensured that this will affect the growth that has been presented by the brand year after year, which has allowed them to occupy second place worldwide, only behind Samsung and above Apple.
Something similar happened to ZTE when the Trump government imposed an export ban that almost destroyed the company, which was the fourth-largest mobile exporter in the United States and although the ban was withdrawn, the firm has not returned to said position.
