Huawei Shouldn't Be Cut off from Android - Google Shares Its Fears

Screenshots from patent filing could show Huawei's Android replacement

The move by Facebook dampens the sales outlook for Huawei Technologies Co Ltd, whose smartphone business became its biggest revenue generator a year ago, powered by strong growth in Europe and Asia. In fact, according to a report from the Financial Times, Google has warned the us government of the potential security challenges arising from this ban on Huawei.

Google wants to be made exempt from the U.S. ban on Huawei, a report said. However, this is set to run out by the end of August, at which point Huawei will have to access Android through the Android Open Source Project (losing access to official security updates and the Google Play Store in the process) or roll out its own system to use on its smartphones instead.

Huawei has confirmed that it is working on its own Android-based Operating system that will be its fail-safe against a complete ban from Google's licensed version of Android OS.

Alphabet Inc., which owns Google, suspended access to its Android operating system in all new devices-meaning they will lose access to popular apps such as Gmail and YouTube.

Senior officials at the US -based tech giant have warned it wouldn't be able to update its Android operating system on Huawei's smartphones, prompting the Chinese company to develop its own version of the software, the FT says.

Back then when you purchase a new Huawei device, it'll usually come with various apps preinstalled with one of them being Facebook.

Huawei, a leader in developing 5G networks, was blacklisted by the USA government in May after following repeated accusations of espionage.

Last month, the Trump administration's Commerce Department added Huawei Technologies to a trade blacklist for allegedly being "involved in activities contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States". With no alternative, USA technology companies complied.

Huawei's issues in the smartphone market stem from its networking business.

Without such tech, Huawei's Android rival could be prone to cyberattacks, and this could eventually backfire against the USA government. Microsoft removed Huawei devices from its online stores.
