Blacklisted: Google Pulls Huawei Android License – what is the fate of Huawei Android Phones?

This is a targeted doom at Huawei and the question people are asking is what is the fate of Huawei Android Phone?

Over the weekend, the US government blacklisted Huawei — which it accuses of aiding Beijing in espionage — and threatened to cut it off from the U.S. software and semiconductors it needs to make its products.

Huawei Android Phone

Google have frozen the supply of critical software and components to Huawei Technologies Co (Huawei Mobile lincense). What this means is that Huawei will no longer be able to use Google apps e.g. Google Play, mail, Maps, etc, in upcoming Android smartphones, and will also be unable to provide Android OS updates to existing phones.

Google said the decision was taken to comply with orders from the US government, which is cracking down on its technology trade with China.

Chipmakers including Intel Corp., Qualcomm Inc., Xilinx Inc. and Broadcom Inc. have told their employees they will not supply Huawei till further notice

Huawei Android Users, This is What it Means

Existing Huawei smartphones will not be able to receive any official Android OS updates going forward.

Huawei will only be able to use the open-source version of Android and will lose access to proprietary apps and services from Google.

The services and applications which will be limited by the implementation of this suspension are still being discussed within Google

You’ll also loss access to YouTube, Gmail, Chrome, and other popular apps and this could have a devastating effect on users in the Western markets where Huawei operates.

The question is, what is the fate of Huawei Android phones?

  1. This is serious, and I just started using Huawei phone. I should have just stay put to my Samsung jeje. I can’t stand phones that don’t receive updates.

  2. I see a conspiracy against Huawei as they were destined to take the lion share of the Android Smartphone market. This smells a Samsung + Apple agenda.
    Since Android is not pulled out completely they may still strive as they are the leading force due to their amazing hardware not just the general OS nothing is that different about across devices.
    Really damning news for the company I do feel for them, even I am not an android user at all…
    Nice share as always Prof, keep it up

  3. This will end up backfiring on the US economy eventually. All that has been done is motivate a potential competition in the OS market to build their own replacement. Sadly, all the hubris of the leaders in Washington still have them believing we are in a secure and strong position and that is simply not the case. The US is a has been that hasnt gotten the news yet.

    • Existing hauwei users will keep getting updates infact Nova 4i users just got an update 2days ago. Meanwhile, Huawei is already working on their operating system nd it will be unveiled soon

  4. Playstore is not the only store to update apps there are other stores like Blackmart, Yelpstore, Aptoide, apkmirrior etc’s.. Mostly I use Yelpstore???

  5. Huawei is a greedy company. Their users should root their phone to keep enjoying
    it . But why no company is even trying to bring another platform that may be better than iPhone and Android? Dieu, tu m’as donné le cerveau. S’il vous plaît aussi me donner l’argent

    • Sailfish, Which my Jolla phone runs is a non iOS or Android operating system, pure linux, with android layer compatibility for those that can’t live without android apps.
      Ubuntu has a mobile platform as well, so do Firefox OS. Mainly linux platforms.
      Visit talk.maemo.org il ya bien plus d’alternatives que tu ne le pense

  6. Conspiracy… That’s all I see. Huawei has Been doing so well in recent years and they fear their dominance soon,hence all these issues.
