Thanks to a mandatory order from the US government, Google announced a total ban on all Huawei devices, something that we probably should have seen coming. Considering how the spyware allegations between the US and the Chinese company is still raging angrily, it’s only obvious that the US would eventually attempt to stop everything, once and for all.
In a statement posted on Huawei’s website, the company responds to Google’s revocation of its Android license:
“Huawei has made substantial contributions to the development and growth of Android around the world. As one of Android’s key global partners, we have worked closely with their open-source platform to develop an ecosystem that has benefitted both users and the industry.
Huawei will continue to provide security updates and after-sales services to all existing Huawei and Honor smartphone and tablet products, covering those that have been sold and that are still in stock globally.
We will continue to build a safe and sustainable software ecosystem, in order to provide the best experience for all users globally.”
Although many are worried about this shocking news, Google assures existing Huawei users that it will continue supporting all current products, regardless if they’re from Huawei or its subsidiary, Honor. This means that even current releases are safe from the ban, so if you’re interested in getting yourself a P30, then there’s no need to worry about buying an unsupported device.
