  • Where there's a will, there's Huawei: US govt already eases trade ban with 90-day reprieve

News.com reported Google's basic services would still function on the Android operating system used in Huawei's smartphones, and existing smartphone owners wouldn't lose access to its Google Play app store or security features. USA officials say Huawei is legally beholden to China's repressive rulers but have provided no evidence that it has intentionally allowed its equipment to be used for espionage.

The world's second-biggest phone maker runs its devices on Google's Android platform outside China, but the U.S. Commerce Department blocked Huawei from buying U.S. goods last week, throwing future software updates into question.

Huawei will have its own Android operating system as a plan B and they could release that, but U.S. online content creator Matthew Moniz says there will still be the issue of gaining developer support, which hasn't gone according to plan for Microsoft or Amazon in the past.

"Keeping phones up to date and secure is in everyone's best interests and this temporary licence allows us to continue to provide software updates and security patches to existing models for the next 90 days", a Google spokesperson told Gizmodo by email.

‘Game of Thrones’: Here’s why HBO isn’t interested in a sequel
This left some wondering and hopeful that one of the shows HBO has in-development is an Arya spin-off. Full spoilers for Game of Thrones' series finale continue below.


Chinese brands such as Oppo, Xiaomi and Vivo each captured about 8 per cent of global market share in 2018, and none are in the race to manufacture 5G equipment - a sticking point as the United States levies allegations of espionage against Huawei. Within the 90 days, the business will go on as usual but after that, it is a toss-up.

"[The U.S.] is showing China and the world that the U.S. government controls Google. You didn't come all the way to the top to get beaten for nothing", Boon Leo, a Huawei user from Malaysia wrote on the company's Facebook page.

Meanwhile, CEO and founder Ren Zhengfei brushed off comments about Huawei's finances will be undermined as a result of the US blacklist. While Chinese customers already have access to an Huawei app store, it will be missing important apps critical for worldwide sales. Among the items include Google technical support and software such as Gmail, YouTube and Google Maps apps.

The might of BlackBerry, Nokia, Microsoft and even Samsung have tried and failed to do so, would Huawei suffer the same fate or will it usher in a new period of mobile operating systems where three players can play in the same field? Thanks to an executive signed by US President Donald Trump, US-based companies have had to nix their support for the Chinese technology manufacturer. Its sources said that the company is looking at launching one only if Android is permanently removed as an option for its smartphone customers.
