The situation regarding the ban of sales of American technology to Huawei is constantly evolving and new details are added as the hours go by. After the ban of the commercial license by Google, which effectively places huge limits on future Huawei and Honor smartphones, the Californian company has taken a further step to comply with Trump administration’s provisions.

In fact, in the last hours, Huawei Mate 20 Pro has been removed from the beta program of Android Q, in which it was inserted immediately after the Google I/O 2019 together with other manufacturers’ smartphones. The only Huawei product on the list is no longer visible, but it is a fairly logical move, a consequence of the announcement of the revocation of the Android license.

We also point out that for the moment the Huawei site shows the procedure to download and install the Android Q beta, but it may be a matter of time before the page is taken offline.

We remind you that for existing Huawei smartphones models, even for Honor ones, updates from the Play Store and security patches are guaranteed.
It is worth to mention that, today at the headquarters of Huawei in Shenzhen, Huawei’s CEO, Ren Zhengfei, accepted an interview with many media outlets and he responded to a couple of issues. Regarding the possible impact of the US ban, Ren Zhengfei bluntly stated that Huawei’s 5G will never be affected. “In terms of 5G technology, others will not be able to catch up with Huawei in two or three years,” and the ban will not cause negative growth in Huawei’s development. It will not affect Huawei’s long-term development. In other words, the founder of the company is saying that the US can not truncate the growth of Huawei’s 5G.

Chinese manufacturing giant, Huawei, is in the news again and this time, a US company says it can still do business with Huawei. According to InterDigital, although the United States tried to ban the sale of chips and software to Huawei, it could license its 5G network technology to Huawei. In addition, some US patent attorneys said that Qualcomm may also be able to do so.
InterDigital and Qualcomm are the two patent holders of wireless network technology in the United States. For a long time, the former has generated revenue by developing wireless technology and then licensing patents. According to InterDigital, the technology that the company licenses is not confidential and is open to the outside world. If a company wants to use it, just pay the fee.

InterDigital spokesperson, Patrick Van de Wille, said that Huawei’s inclusion in the “entity list” does not prevent the company from signing a patent license agreement with Huawei because “our patents involve open technology and therefore exceed US export control laws.” Qualcomm, on the other hand, did not respond to requests for comment. However, trade lawyers believe that the situation faced by Qualcomm is similar to InterDigital.
It is worth mentioning that Qualcomm, InterDigital, and Huawei have patent disputes. In January of this year, Huawei filed a lawsuit against InterDigital in China, alleging that the company did not authorize its intellectual property rights under fair terms. The patent dispute between Qualcomm and Huawei has not yet been resolved.

The news from Sunday night that Google would be complying with a US government edict and suspending business with Huawei is one of the most dramatic moments in Android’s history. Huawei, China’s most prolific smartphone vendor, had started 2019 with explosive double-digit growth and was on a path to eclipse Samsung as the world’s number one phone maker by the year’s end. Without Google’s Android support, however, that’s simply not going to happen — not in 2019 or 2020 or any other date in the future.
Whether this proves to be the most consequential moment in Android’s history has yet to be determined. This could all be just a short-lived scare tactic from a Trump administration trying to demonstrate to the Chinese government its willingness to take drastic measures. Or Huawei might be left on the US blacklist indefinitely, spawning a wide variety of potential scenarios, none of which bode well for the company’s future as a smartphone vendor.
As things stand, Huawei is losing its licensing agreement with Google for the provision of Google Play Services and access to the Google Play Store on new Huawei Android devices. Existing customers won’t be affected, though without Google resuming business with Huawei, they also won’t get any further Android OS updates. (Honor, Huawei’s wholly owned subsidiary, looks to be subject to the same fate). This is devastating to Huawei’s hopes of selling any smartphones outside of China.
" Deprived of Google’s software, Huawei would be selling featherless chickens"
Huawei still has the option to use the open-source variety of Android, but Google has been gradually whittling all of the attractive components away from the Android Open Source Project (AOSP). The genuine full-fat Android experience of today — featuring Google Maps, YouTube, and, most crucially, the full ecosystem of third-party Android apps — is dependent on Google’s licensing assent. Deprived of Google’s software, Huawei would be selling featherless chickens to smartphone buyers used to having Play Store access. In Europe, even the finest hardware wouldn’t convince consumers to buy a phone without an app ecosystem. Google wields enormous market power through its Play Store, significant enough for the European Commission to conduct an antitrust investigation.
