Huawei News Huawei will prioritize development and use of Android ecosystem By TPRO TEAM Posted on May 21, 2019 0 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin Share on Tumblr During the past year, Huawei has achieved a lot globally in its smartphone and telecom business. So much, that the company now stands at the second top position for its smartphone sales. The Chinese tech giant was also just about to launch its commercial 5G services as well as a first 5G handset. But it’s like the existing top powers didn’t want a Chinese firm to reach that place. Well it’s my own opinion about the recent tussle between US and China. US says otherwise, accusing the tech giant for spying with their network equipment – denied multiple times by the Chinese firm for no evident facts. But that all brought it to the stage where the Huawei’s consumer business may have impact – Google’s Android license revocation. Huawei didn’t stay quiet and brought full response which should concern its consumers globally. “Huawei has made substantial contributions to the development and growth of Android around the world. As one of Android’s key global partners, we have worked closely with their open-source platform to develop an ecosystem that has benefited both users and the industry.” Huawei said that it will continue to provide security updates and after-sales services to all existing Huawei and Honor smartphone and tablet products covering those that have been sold or still in-stock globally. “We will continue to build a safe and sustainable software ecosystem, in order to provide the best experience for all users globally.” Here are some questions clearly answered by Huawei CBG. 1. Will this have an impact on Huawei’s existing sales? How much of an impact will this have on CBG’s global business? Huawei will continue to provide security updates and after-sales services to all existing Huawei and Honor smartphone and tablet products, covering those that have been sold and that are still in stock globally. 2. Will this suspension of business with Google have an impact on Huawei’s business in China? No. 3. Will people be able to continue using Google services like Google Play and Gmail on their Huawei phones? The products we have sold and currently sell will not be affected. You will be able to continue using these services as you normally would. 4. Will this affect the regular use of Huawei phones? The products we have sold and currently sell will not be affected. You will be able to use them as you normally would. 5. Will Huawei phones be able to receive Android updates? We will continue providing updates for Huawei EMUI. 6. Will people still be able to update their Google apps? Yes. 7. Will Huawei phones support Android Q? More details will be released in future system upgrade notifications. 8.

If people reset their Huawei phones to factory settings, will that have an impact on their ability to use Google services in the future? No, this will not have an impact. 11. Will Huawei products that are not yet launched be affected? Huawei will continue to provide security updates and after-sales services to all existing Huawei and Honor smartphone and tablet products, covering those that have been sold and that are still in stock globally. 12. Does this mean that Huawei will speed up the development and deployment of its own operating system? Android is open source, and Huawei has made substantial contributions to its development and growth around the world. We will continue to prioritize the development and use of the Android ecosystem.
