HUAWEI HMS NEEDS MUCH TIME AND EFFORT TO DEVELOP
After being included in the US entity list, Huawei’s mobile phones cannot use Google Mobile Services (GMS). At the developer conference last year, the company launched Huawei’s HMS to replace Google’s GMS service. Furthermore, at the Huawei P40 series launch conference in March this year, Huawei announced that the P40 series will use its own HMS service and AppGallery application store. This is the first time that the company fully uses its own services on its flagship smartphone.
It appears that the U.S is not lifting the ban on Huawei anytime soon. In fact, it is stiffening the ban. In its latest announcement, the U.S. government said that any company that uses US technology must obtain a U.S. license before working for Huawei. This means that the likes of TSMC which is behind Huawei’s Kirin chips can not take orders from Huawei.
