It has been almost six months since the United States government bans Huawei from doing business with US tech companies. Since then, companies such as Google and Microsoft have stopped their business with Huawei. This has cause Huawei sales to drop drastically.
However, today there is a piece of official news from the US Secretary of Commerce, Wilbur Ross, says that sooner Huawei could be regaining its access to the US tech companies. Which means Huawei can start its business once again with US tech companies such as Google and Microsoft. According to Wilbur Ross, the talks between China and the US regarding the trade deal is getting a very positive response.
If you notice Huawei’s latest Mate 30 series, it is not equipped with any of the Google apps and services. This has caused much frustration to the Huawei fans. Imagine, you not able to download your favourite apps or games from the Google Play Store. This has given a huge impact on Huawei. At the same time, Huawei also previously reveals that it could be porting its own Harmony OS for its smartphones if the US government continues to ban Huawei in the US by the end of 2019.
During Ross interview with Bloomberg, he has stated that the US is planning to mitigate this issue by offering licenses for the companies. Without this licence, Huawei could not continue its work with the US tech giants. As of now, the licenses have not been issued yet, but Ross strongly states it will come “very shortly”.
Looks like finally, Huawei Mate 30 series smartphone could be getting Google updates very soon.
