When the creation of the “black list” in the United States led to the banning of Huawei, a temporary license was issued, so that the brand’s equipment would continue to receive updates on Google apps. However, Huawei has lost access to Google services, but it would only affect future smartphones allegedly.
Despite the trouble, smartphones already launched by Huawei before the ban would be supposedly “safe”. However, the truth is that devices released after May 2019 are all at risk of not receiving updates on Google apps.
The information came from the Washington Post, which noted that the Commerce Department may issue a temporary license, but if it does not, smartphones such as the P Smart 2020 or P30 Lite New Edition may be completely blocked from Google updates.
This situation only puts Huawei at a more complicated crossroads, as the company has even abdicated from manufacturing its Kirin processors, due to commercial pressure from the American government. The situation gets worse and worse for Huawei, with no improvements in sight.
These situations only motivate Huawei to invest even more in its ecosystem, which it is trying to create with AppGallery, Petal Search and other applications. However, it is very difficult to conquer the European market without including Google services on their smartphones.
It is an impossible fight to win. All Android smartphones require Google services. Even iPhone and iOS users use Google apps in their daily lives, like Gmail, for example.
