Huawei Technologies felt the trade war heat earlier last month as US government suspended most of its business operations with the company for spy allegations. Top American companies like Google and Facebook also cut ties with the Chinese company in support of the US Government. Reports were also gathered that Huawei is working on releasing its own Oak OS to reduce the Google Android dominance. Yesterday, at the G20 summit, Donald Trump has announced that the government will allow the Chinese company to do business with US companies.
The US President, Donald Trump while briefing newsmen said that there is no security problem involved with US companies selling their equipment to Huawei Technologies. He noted that after meeting and discussing with China’s president Xi Jinping, he will allow US firms to start selling their equipment to Huawei.
It is not clear if components like Qualcomm OS, Android OS from Google, etc will be given to Huawei. However, Trump added that the trade agreement Huawei will be coming up soon, probably next week. “We are leaving Huawei towards the end. We are going to see what we go with the trade agreement”, said Donald Trump.
Meanwhile, Huawei is still on the “Entity List” by the US Government that suspended the company from transacting with American companies. Trump, in reaction to this, assured that he will be discussing all of this with the Commerce Department and that an official report will be released soon.
FoneArena reports a few weeks ago that Huawei and it sub-brand Honor announced that a range of its smartphones will be receiving the Android Q update with frequent security updates. This means that if Huawei and Google are allowed to work together again as before, Huawei and Honor users would continue to get regular firmware updates.
Here is what Donald Trump, US President said:
“These are American companies producing the products. This is complex … highly scientific. We are the only one with the technology. I have agreed to allow them to continue selling the products … I like our companies selling things to others … very complex things. These are not things easy to make … our companies were very upset, but we are allowing them. So if it is not a national security issue, we are allowing them to sell”.
