For those who spent what money they could've spent to buy a Samsung for a Huawei, oh boy ain't it such a regret right now...
It's going to be a rough road ahead for Huawei gadget users after the China-brand tech company met with a challenge by The US Department of Commerce, by banning Huawei from accessing Android licencing.
Can Huawei still be known as an Android smartphone then?
However, The US Department of Commerce did lift the ban till 19 August 2019 to allow the company serve its consumers without any disruption and let the company prepare for a rough journey forward.
The temporary license uplift means that Huawei will be able to work with Google, Intel, Qualcomm and other companies which had to stop working with Huawei, as a result of trade blacklist with the company.
I'm guessing that Huawei must've had seen this coming and had made a contingency plan to counter this issue, by creating its first ever self developed operating system - "Hongmeng", back in March of this year.
According to Huawei CEO Richard Yu, there will be no new EMUI updates for any Huawei devices after Google ends software support.
FACT: "Hongmeng" was in active development since 2012.
Based on report from Huawei Central, Google has pulled out its Android OS software support from Huawei devices cause of Trump -- who was reported to have blacklisted Huawei.
Speak about a true Apple fan...
Well, this may or may not be a good thing for Huawei fans -- who knows how good this "Hongmeng" OS may be...
Check it out:
So I guess the next best action plan is to skip out on Huawei -- if you're really wanting Android licencing + Google, or you could prove yourself to be a true hardcore Huawei fan and stay to watch what new "techgasms" that "Hongmeng" could do.
Choice is yours...but I hear a whole lotta gasps from friends who just bought Huawei smartphone.
