For more than a year, Huawei and its partners in the U.S., was given a temporary license that allows them to work together and trade, which has been extended on several occasions, but as of yesterday, the license is about to expire.
All of the smart phones produced before May 16, 2019 and are still eligible for security updates from Google, and in terms of the updates to Google apps, but there’s a catch. If by any chance for Huawei to break the compatibility with Google’s apps, while a software update from Google will not be able to get to work on the problem, even if Google already made the update and the patch.
There is also the possibility of the Smartphone will not be able to distribute the Google apps with future updates, even for devices that are older than May 16, 2019 at the latest, because Google has to certify every update, Huawei is pushing it. With the ban in place, and that the license is missing, Google will not be in a position to do so.
However, these scenarios are highly unlikely, but there is a small chance that older devices will have to be cut off from Google’s support center.
Unfortunately, it is not an official of the Smartphone, or the U.S. Department of Commerce, has commented on the issue, and whether or not the temporary general permit will be renewed once more, leaving owners of the older Huawei and Honor devices in the dark.
