With Huawei being hit with a trade ban with US companies, one of the implications is how it might affect its smartphones. We have heard that the company could be considering building its own OS or using Sailfish, but what about existing smartphones? Google has confirmed that existing devices will continue to be supported, but we’re sure that these changes has probably demoralized Huawei quite a bit.

However, the good news is that despite these legal troubles, Huawei will not be forsaking its customers. In a post on its website in which Huawei answers a bunch of questions regarding the future of the company and its products, the company has reassured existing customers that they will be bringing the Android Q update to a bunch of handsets.

Now, not every single handset will be getting the update, but there will be over 17 devices part of this list. This includes the Huawei P30, P30 Pro, P30 Lite, Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, PORSCHE DESIGN Mate 20 RS, P smart 2019, P smart+ 2019, P smart Z, Mate 20 X, Mate 20 X (5G), P20, P20 Pro, Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro, PORSCHE DESIGN Mate 10, and the Mate 20 Lite.

These pretty much cover Huawei products dating back to 2017, so if you’re still holding onto your Huawei phone from back then, not to worry as you’ll still be able to get the latest Android update. However, when exactly the update will be rolled out is anyone’s guess.
