Last week the smartphone’s world was surprised in light of Huawei’s ban imposed by the US government. The sanction signed by President Donald Trump basically stopped the Chinese Behemoth on its race to become the world’s top smartphone company and 5G Network leader. A ton of companies ceased deals with the firm, and even Google removed Huawei from the list of Android licensed companies. This ultimately led to the removal of Huawei Mate 20 Pro from the Android Q Beta program.
Now, since the United States offered a 90-day limited reprieve, Google did so too. Today, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro has once again become part of the list of smartphones that are enrolled into the Android Q beta program. This comes right after the Chinese firm was reinstated by the SD association and the Wi-Fi Alliance, both will make life easier for future Huawei’s smartphones. Also, it puts some doubt if the Android Pie will be the last Android version run on Huawei smartphones. Still, it’s to soon to say that it will be present in the Huawei Mate 30 series coming in October. Huawei’s own ArkOS is likely to come on the late 2019 flagships.
Gizchina News of the week
Despite the whole mess that Huawei got involved, the news about the company’s reintegration in some important companies is a good example of how this mess could easily go away in the future. While being placed on the Entity List was a move in response to the fear that Huawei could be forced by the communist Chinese government to spy on its behalf. But at the same time, President Donald Trump has suggested that Huawei could be used to be benefited in a future agreement between the two countries.
With the two companies involved in this struggling trade war, Trump could ultimately use Huawei as a bargaining coin to China. The US court could offer the removal of Huawei from entity list in return of more favorable terms, while China could use the firm as a pawn to demand that the US removes the company before being able to negotiate.
