Huawei's 5G phone just got dropped by two major United Kingdom carriers

Huawei's 5G phone just got dropped by two major United Kingdom carriers

The news comes as Google is set to quit supporting Huawei's Android operating system.

Millions of Huawei smartphone owners around the world are suddenly interested in the trade war between China and the U.S.

In light of Google's decision to cut ties with Huawei, which puts Android updates in jeopardy as well as access to the Google Play Store for future Huawei phones, customers in Asia naturally anxious those devices are about to become worthless are reportedly racing to trade them in.

O2, however, has confirmed that it will continue to stock Huawei 5G phones despite security concerns. Existing phones will function as always, but they may no longer be privy to future software and security updates.

Best of all for Huawei fans: it will still be compatible with all Android and web apps.

It's not just in the United Kingdom, carriers in Taiwan and Japan have paused sales on Huawei's Mate X smartphone and even extending their restrictions to Huawei's existing devices like the P30.

"But those smartphone makers using the Android platform, including Samsung, could see short-term benefit from the European and South American markets".

Answer: Android is open source, and Huawei has made substantial contributions to its development and growth around the world.

EE, the UK's largest mobile operator owned by telecoms firm BT, announced at a press conference on May 22 that Huawei smartphones would be left out of its 5G launch until its post-export-ban future becomes clearer. "At Huawei, we won't resort to nationalism and populism, because that is harmful to our country", he said.

"If you're an existing Huawei customer there's no change at this stage".

On Monday, Huawei Technologies was granted a 90-day temporary license across the board, allowing support for existing networks and devices. I'd wager that pressure from U.S. chipmakers will see the restrictions eased.

The Portuguese company has previously worked with other Chinese manufacturers including Oppo, Vivo and Xiaomi and has more than 200 million users on Aptoide in total. He also claimed that the ban had no impact on Huawei's 5G plans and boasted that the company has a two-to-three year lead over its rivals. If anybody's using harvested data for nefarious purposes, it'd be Facebook and Google.
