In the mobile community, another panic. It was provoked by a media report that Google
What is the fate of Huawei?
Google, as Reuters informs, is preparingdeliver a crushing blow to Huawei. Namely, all communications with the Chinese manufacturer will be suspended. This means that new Huawei phones will no longer work on Android, Google Play Store and other applications from Google will not be pre-installed on them. Lord, but do not need to create panic. All current owners of Huawei smartphones are not among them.

However, it is also noted that Huawei does not want to use its own operating system.
Last year, the US government bannedfor export ZTE, which virtually destroyed the company. ZTE was not allowed to purchase any hardware, software, or components in the United States until an agreement was reached. Before the ban, ZTE was the fourth largest smartphone maker in the US, but dropped out of the list after the ban was introduced and never returned.
US actions against Huawei take place against the backdrop ofbig trade war between usa and china. Last week, the president raised tariffs on hundreds of billions of Chinese imports from 10% to 25%. He also threatened to include smartphones and other technical products in the next level of products from China in order to receive a 25% tax. That's it…
