Thanks to a recent reversal, it was announced that Huawei could once again do business with US companies. However, it does not mean that the company has been taken off the Entity List, but rather it meant that unless the business poses a risk to national security, US companies can apply for licenses to do business with Huawei.
Now that Huawei is (sort of) allowed to do business with US companies again, this means that in terms of smartphone operating systems, the company should be allowed to use Google Play services moving forwards. However, there is also the question of its own operating system, and what this change means for it.
Now that Huawei is once again allowed to do business with US companies, it sounds like good news for the company. After all, the ban had a huge impact across multiple product categories, such as the company providing 5G equipment to carriers, laptops, tablets, smartphones, software, and the likes.
Many have been curious about Huawei’s Mate 30 series in light of its troubles with the U.S. government. According to a new report, this device is very much in the pipeline and it’s set to have a 5G variant as well. The report mentions that the Huawei Mate 30 5G is likely going to be released in December this year.
Huawei has had a difficult few weeks after it was effectively blacklisted by the U.S. government which prevented it from doing business from companies in the United States. Any U.S. company would first have to seek the administration’s approval before doing business with Huawei. The ban had massive implications for Huawei as it’s dependent on U.S. companies for things like components and even Android OS for its smartphones. In what […]
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.
Following the ban on Huawei by the US government, it means that the company will no longer be able to buy or do business with US companies. While this will no doubt have a huge impact on Huawei, it seems that there will also be a huge impact on US companies that Huawei used to do business with.
The U.S. administration’s ban on Huawei has thrown a spanner in the works of one of the world’s fastest growing smartphone vendors. The company has put forward some figures which suggest that the ban has had a more negative effect than originally anticipated. The company has cut its revenue forecast by $30 billion and also expects to ship up to 60 million fewer devices this year.
Huawei is in a bit of a spot of bother these days because of the U.S. ban and the company had more bad press to deal with earlier this week. Many users reported that they had started seeing lock screen ads on select Huawei smartphones. Word immediately went out that Huawei had started showing ads on lock screens without first informing users. The company has now sent out a statement […]
Due to the ongoing legal troubles that Huawei is experiencing in the US, the company will most likely need to start finding an alternative operating system for its smartphones. We had heard rumors that the company could be working on their own OS, but according to new reports, it seems that the company could actually turn to the use of a different but existing OS.
2019 was supposed to be the year of the foldable phone, but it is already halfway through the year and we still do not have any idea of how these phones are supposed to change our lives, or at least the way we use our smartphones. This is because not only has the Samsung Galaxy Fold’s launch been delayed, but so has the Huawei Mate X.
With Huawei’s access to Android being restricted due to the fall out from the US/China trade war, the company is reportedly going to deploy its own operating system on devices from October this year. Huawei has previously revealed that it has been working on its very own mobile operating system as a contingency in the event that its access to Android was ever blocked. Its HongMeng OS may be rebranded […]
Huawei continues to feel the pinch from the effective trade ban imposed by the U.S. administration. According to a new report, Facebook will no longer allow Huawei to pre-install its core apps on smartphones. This means that some of the most popular apps in the world will no longer be included on Huawei smartphones right out of the box.
Due to the US government officially blacklisting Huawei from doing business with US companies, it has resulted in Huawei losing support from the likes of Google. However, it seems that Huawei might have found an unexpected ally in Google because in a report from the Financial Times, Google is reportedly lobbying the US government to reinstate Huawei.
