It has not been a month since the United States imposed a ban on US companies doing business with Huawei citing national security concerns.
Two days ago President Trump relaxed his tone when he said American companies could continue to do business with the telecommunications giant. While it is unknown how long this “permit” extends and if it will be applies to 5G technology, one thing is certain that Google and Huawei will continue to cooperate.
Under US sanction terms, Google decided to revoke Huawei’s Android license, which means that the company’s phones will not use the Play Store or Google’s services. While Trump did not mention specific companies like Google, Qualcomm and Intel, he cited the complex products and technologies created by American companies.
“What we did in the Silicon Valley is tremendous, and no one has been able to compete with it and we have agreed that our companies will continue to sell Huawei-s products,” Trump said.
While American sanctions had not yet come into effect due to 90-day permissions, it had started to affect Huawei’s upcoming products. Now Google is once again ready to license Huawei’s Android.
