When Huawei got banned from doing business with US companies, it was a sad news for us Huawei fans and as a big lover of their flagships, the Mate 30 Pro, it was a horror story when we heard the device with such a awesome spec list won’t be running the Google Play Services rather the AOSP (Android Open Source Project).
The issue came amid claims that Huawei is too close to the Chinese government and pose potential threats to the US government by creating backdoors to their devices. Huawei had denied this claims endlessly. While the company had created its own App store it called “Huawei App Gallery” its by no means close to the Google play store and only feature China-based services which aren’t really popular throughout the world.
Another move had gotten the Chinese tech titan a new 45-days extension which will allow US companies to deal with the Chinese company. The report was obtained from Reuters.
Although this is a good news for the company as they have another 45 Days to make important deals before the window closes again. But that doesn’t affect the fact that Huawei had been blacklisted on the US trade entity list ciitng security concerns.

This isn’t the first time the ban will be relaxed for a window of opportunity which gives Huawei chance to have business relations with US companies for a limited period.The extensions were said to be aimed at minimizing disruptions for customers, many of which operate networks in rural America.
The US government had even considered further restriction against the Chinese company but the new window opens and closes after 45 days.
A Huawei exec had also stated that it won’t go back to using Google apps if the ban was lifted but the company was quick to leave it is options open with the release of a statement that read; “An open Android ecosystem is still our first choice, but if we are not able to continue to use it, we have the ability to develop our own.”
But I’m still amazed why the company hasn’t experimented with the Harmony OS on one of its smartphones this year and see how people will recieve it. Because to me, its all about creating their own ecosystem and then patching it up until they can implement it throughout their entire devices and maybe create an entire industry just like Apple’s ecosystem.
