For the wrongest reasons, Huawei has being winding up on the wrong side of the news lately.
From being accused of selling phones that spy on user private data and sharing with the Chinese government to getting in-between the teeth of the president Donald Trump.
Just few days ago, Google decided to retrieve Android license from the Chinese company leaving them bare to the cold.
Although, after retrieving the License, Google granted Huawei a temporary license which will enable them to continue doing business and running transactions with important US partners and suppliers for a period of three months.
Adding to all the controversies currently raving on between Huawei and Google. Google suddenly removed the Huawei Mate 20 Pro from the Android Q Beta page.
Nobody knows whether the phone was removed from the extensive roster before Google granted the temporary license or after doing so.
But Google removing the smartphone from its Android Q beta extensive roaster goes on to add to the uncertainty which Huawei phones have concerning major future updates.
Reports have it that Huawei is working on its own OS called HongMeng. Therefore, chances of the Huawei’s yet-to-be-released Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro getting released in the fall with some sort of a homebrewed OS pre-installed keeps increasing. If that doesn’t happen, then future Huawei phones will be running on Huawei’s own OS.
Huawei is especially adamant that their own OS will come with support for Android apps just like Samsung’s Tizen and Linux’s Sailfish OS.
Even with all that has happened, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro developer page for the update is still up and running.
Google will allow services like Google Play to continue functioning on Huawei phones.
According to reports, in preparations to trade war uncertainties, Huawei has already stockpiled crucial components sourced from the US up to 12 months.
