Yesterday the news of US placing a ban on Huawei from patronizing Its companies was a thing that swept the whole world into shock. Of course, we’ve always been aware of a sour relationship that existed between these two but yesterday’s own was at its peak.

Huawei’s android licence was cancelled by Google following the order of President Trump. However, in the meantime, starting from today, the US Commerce Department has effectively delayed some of the consequences of that order for Huawei by 90 days.
According to Reuters reports, Within the next 3 months, Huawei will be able to buy American-made goods “in order to maintain existing networks and provide software updates to existing Huawei handsets”, it added However, “the company is still prohibited from buying American parts and components to manufacture new products without license approvals that likely will be denied”.
With the Android revocation now currently on hold from now till August 19th, it means Huawei can still certify OS updates with Google for existing handsets. Whether or not this time frame will be long enough to ensure such certifications are given for Android Q updates for Huawei’s existing handsets remains to be seen, but we assume the Chinese company will do its best to receive them.
We hope US and China smooth things out before the August 19 deadline given to Huawei.
