It’s been Huawei all over the place since May and that news isn’t going away too soon. Of course we expected Huawei would ditch Android and it’s US partners altogether for others considering it’s striking deals with the likes of Russia over it’s 5G deployment and the launching of the Harmony OS.
The latest is that the Chinese company would still be allowed to work with couple of it’s US partners even though it was promised of being lifted off the US trade blacklist. However, Reuters have reported that the US Department of Commerce is expected to grant the company another 90-day “Temporary general license” which would renew it’s older 90-day license that would have expired on Monday, 19th of August, 2019.
The announcement will allow Huawei to maintain both current telecom networks and supply software updates for it’s smartphone lines. This is a good news for those that are planning to ditch their beloved P30 Pro which is a real beautiful and indispensable device…sincerely. This might put Huawei through the year 2019 while we expect things to change by 2020 hopefully.
As things goes, the license might be allowed to expire according to insider reports but the Commerce Department had declined to comment on this. While this definitely a political thing as the initial ban was used by the US as a leverage during it’s trade dispute with China.

Huawei being a really massive telecommunication company in China is accused of being meddled with by the Chinese government. The US might as well lift the ban in the future but all depends on whether China would be willing to make some key “Concessions”. While Huawei still sends updates to it’s Android users, the support might not be coming in as usual again or I might be wrong about it but the story is still open and anything can change over time. Meanwhile, let’s have your opinion in the comment section below.
