In recent times, all kinds of rumors are flying all over the world regarding Huawei. For the average consumer, especially those outside China, the most worrying report is that Huawei’s mobile phone can’t use the Android system, and can’t upgrade and install Android applications. Similarly, Huawei consumer notebook users will also be worried about its compatibility with the Windows system. Regarding these concerns and market rumors, Huawei issued an announcement on its foreign official website, saying that at any time, Huawei will put consumer interests first, no matter how big the challenges are.
Huawei claims that all its smartphones and tablets can continue to receive security patches and Android updates. Any consumer who has purchased or is about to purchase a Huawei smartphone can use the app store as usual. All equipment will continue to be covered by Huawei’s warranty and will be fully supported by Huawei. Huawei’s current most popular devices, including the P30 series, are able to access Android Q.

Huawei has been added to the “entity list” by the US Department of Commerce for a month. This has caused some companies in the US and other countries to sever their business with Huawei. This, in turn, is affecting Huawei’s various businesses, especially those involving chips and software. Many users believe that sooner or later, Huawei smartphones will no longer be compatible with Android and its notebooks can’t use Windows. The impact of the US ban on Huawei’s consumer products is mainly in the foreign markets, founder Ren Zhengfei, said. In an interview with the media, he said that the company’s revenue may drop by $30 billion and this is only a worst-case estimate, it could be much better. For overseas business, Ren Zhengfei mentioned that it may drop by 40%, but this data is also the worst case scenario. In fact, it has not fallen so much.
