Huawei persists to suffer from the consequences of the veto imposed by the US government. The Huawei Mate 30 will have no Android or pre-installed Google Apps because they have no license, a Google spokesman confirmed.
These statements were published in Reuters and mentioned the uncertain future of the next term of the brand. Remember that Google cannot grant Huawei a license to use its services in its future mobile devices as a result of the measures introduced by the United States.
While there is some kind of ceasefire, as the US has extended the license to Huawei (late 18 November) to continue doing business with US brands, this does not apply in this case. The aim of this shift is for companies that have a relationship with Huawei or consumers themselves to look for other alternatives.
What would be the future for Huawei?
This temporary license, therefore, does not apply to future Huawei products or future business relationships. That is, Huawei does not have a license or permission from the U.S. that would allow it to launch a device with Google products. Although they can choose an open-source version of Android, they don’t have all of Google’s pre-installed apps and services.
On the other hand, we know that Huawei has a plan b with its own operating system, HarmonyOs, but that doesn’t seem to be a viable solution in the near future. According to the plans, Huawei Mate 30 will be officially launched in September, so we’ll have to wait and see what strategy the brand follows at this new interface.
