Huawei’s next flagship cell phone won’t accompany Google’s well-known applications including Maps and YouTube.
Google affirmed that because of a US government restriction on sales to Huawei, it couldn’t license its applications to the Chinese cell phone giant.
It likewise implies the next Huawei phone won’t approach the Google Play application store, which could leave clients without access to other famous applications.
Experts propose Huawei will battle to sell a phone without Google’s applications.
The US government confined American organizations from selling products and services to Huawei in May, referring to national security concerns, which Huawei rejects.
President Donald Trump said a month ago that a few exceptions would be permitted.
Yet, US authorities have not allowed any licenses to trade with Huawei, notwithstanding getting in excess of 130 requests.
Reuters was first to report the most recent development.
The Android operating system is open-source software, so any maker can offer it on their cell phone or tablet.
Be that as it may, organizations need an agreement with Google to incorporate its well-known applications, for example, Maps, Pay, Search, Photos, Play Store and YouTube.
Google has not said whether it has connected for permission to offer its applications to Huawei.
Huawei said in an announcement: “Huawei will continue to use the Android OS and ecosystem if the US government allows us to do so. Otherwise, we will continue to develop our own operating system and ecosystem.”
It has set up a website named Huawei Answers to address purchaser worries about the organization’s relationship with Android.
“Anyone who has already bought, or is about to buy a Huawei smartphone, can continue to access the world of apps as they have always done.
“All devices continue to be covered by our manufacturer’s warranty and will receive full-service support accordingly,” the company said.
Huawei is only weeks from propelling its next flagship phone, the Mate 30 Pro.
It will be Huawei’s first significant phone launch since the US restrictions were connected in May.
However, analysts say propelling without Google’s applications in Europe will be a noteworthy blow.
Purchasers hope to approach all the major applications they are utilized to – including Maps and YouTube. Without them, Huawei’s phones will appear to be significantly less appealing.
Also, losing the Play Store implies Huawei should give another approach to clients to get to other prominent applications, for example, Facebook, Twitter, and BBC News.
It is conceivable to make Android-powered gadgets without including Google. Amazon does this with its Fire tablets, which don’t accompany Google’s applications.
However, will clients want a premium, high-end mobile phone that does not have access to some of the world’s most-used apps?
Huawei has said it will keep utilizing Android for whatever length of time that the US government permits it.
However, it is likewise working on its own operating system – Harmony OS – as a back-up plan.
