Recently, the US Department of Commerce issued another temporary license to a Chinese company, which allows trade with
Microsoft recently said it receivedpermission to supply Huawei software. If Google does not certify the smartphones of a Chinese company, what software does Microsoft sell them? In fact, everything is simple, the company produces not only smartphones, but also other computer equipment, including very good laptops. A laptop without an operating system is useless to most buyers.

If permission has been granted, thenMicrosoft will resume selling operating system and office software licenses. This is very important for Huawei, since the lack of software licenses forced the company to postpone the release of the professional version of the new flagship, and the small ones were forced to stop selling the laptop MateBook X from Huawei on their website. When the remnants of old parties that did not fall under sanctions were completed, sales were suspended.
For Microsoft itself, this is permission from the Ministry of TradeThe US is also very important, because the American company works with the Chinese on a cloud solution Azure. This hybrid cloud service uses Microsoft's Azure Stack software, and Huawei provides the server.

There is no information about which companies, other than Microsoft, have received permission, but there are rumors that Google has also applied, it may be possible to buy smartphones of the Chinese company again soon. However, in this dispute a lot can turn out literally in a couple of days. Whether the professional version of the Mate 30 will be able to get the services of the American program to sell its flagship around the world is not known, as is the fate of future smartphones of the brand.
