While Huawei is working on its own operating system and various smartphones are holding out the prospect of an update to Android Q, US President Trump commented on the current situation in the US in the trade dispute with China at the current G20 summit.

Huawei – USA / Trump allows deliveries to China again

Smartphone maker Huawei has suffered quite a bit lately. Due to a dispute between China and the United States, President Trump put Huawei on the trade blacklist. As a result, the smartphone manufacturer’s Android license was withdrawn and sales of Huawei and its subsidiary Honor collapsed. Furthermore, a separate operating system called HongMeng OS / Ark OS is to be brought to the devices, which then has to get by without the support of the Google Play Store, but with alternative stores.

Huawei recently dispelled users’ concerns on an info page and spoke of developments for the future. Subsidiary Honor has also made a promise for the future on hi.honor.com. There should be security updates as usual, apps and Android can be used as usual and there is a 2-year manufacturer guarantee as usual.

Huawei and Honor give update guarantees on Android Q on the following smartphones:

  • Huawei P30 Pro
  • Huawei P30
  • Huawei P30 Lite
  • Huawei Mate 20
  • Huawei Mate 20 Lite
  • Huawei Mate 20 Pro
  • Huawei Mate 20 RS Porsche Design
  • Huawei Mate 20 X
  • Huawei Mate 20X 5G
  • Huawei PSmart 2019
  • Huawei PSmart Plus 2019
  • Huawei PSmart Z
  • Huawei P20 Pro
  • Huawei P20
  • Huawei Mate 10 Pro
  • Huawei Mate 10 Pro Porsche Design
  • Huawei Mate 10
  • Honor 20
  • Honor 20 Lite
  • Honor 20 Pro
  • Honor View 20
  • Honor 10 Lite

On the current one G20 summit In Osaka, Japan, President Trump commented on the sanctions surrounding Huawei and announced a ceasefire:

“US companies can sell their devices to Huawei. We’re talking about devices that don’t have a major national security problem. I said that’s okay, we’re going to resell the product, these are American companies that make these products. It’s very complex, by the way. I have agreed that they can continue to sell this product so that American companies can continue. ”

Companies from the USA should therefore continue to be able to sell technology to Huawei.

President Trump has appeared to soften his tone on Chinese communications giant Huawei, suggesting that he would allow the company to once again purchase US technology https://t.co/4YNJCyKLTg pic.twitter.com/jr45f40ghP

However, Huawei remains on the “entity list”. Thus, the sale of US technology to Huawei remains illegal, but under the “protection” of President Trump. Trump says there will be a meeting on Monday or Tuesday to clarify whether Huawei will be removed from the list.

ON OR OFF ?: “We are talking about that, we have a meeting on that tomorrow or Tuesday,” says Trump when asked to clarify if Huawei is going to be taken off the US trade entity list. Looks like things are not confirmed just yet # G20Osaka

Whether the ceasefire with China will come in time is questionable, as Huawei has already started the machinery with its own Ark OS operating system and is pushing it forward in a targeted manner. An operating system that is up to 60 percent faster is likely to put the American company Google in a difficult position with Android. It was also announced at Huawei that they are not dependent on supplier parts from the USA. The SoCs are already largely manufactured by Huawei in China and the operating system can also be equipped with alternatives to the Play Store.

So there has been some relaxation in the messed up situation.
