Google removed Huawei Mate X and P30 Pro from Android’s website

Amidst growing tensions for China and its major telecommunication companies, President of the U.S. Donald Trump' government will now be capable of blocking foreign tech companies from conducting business in the United States of America, effectively banning the Chinese telecom giant Huawei. Shortly after the Android bombshell we learned that hardware makers such as Intel, Qualcomm, Xilinx and Broadcom had been given notice to not work with Huawei either. Google has been the biggest company to pull out of dealings with Huawei but now carriers are also following suit.

South African owners of Huawei handsets can expect "business as usual". Presumably the upcoming Kirin 990 or Kirin 720 chipsets are affected by this as well, hence essentially crippling Huawei's next generation of flagship smartphones. The Trump administration banned Huawei networking equipment in United States networks in February 2018, which is why AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon are all using Ericsson and Nokia equipment to build out their 5G networks.

Washington did end up going back on the decision by some degree, having issued a temporary license to Huawei that allowed it to resume the majority of its operations but the situation is still looking grim for the Shenzen-based firm in the long term.

Huawei smartphones had a 14% share of the Singapore market previous year, according to research firm Canalys. The company grew from 1.5 percent in 2010 to 13 percent in 2018, and is now the second-largest smartphone producer globally behind Samsung. Soybeans are the most valuable USA farm export, and shipments to China dropped to a 16-year low in 2018.

"Most countries have always been highly alert to U.S. government acts of resorting to state power to crack down on companies in other countries, disrupt markets and obstruct mutually beneficial cooperation between other countries", Lu said.

"We are pausing pre-orders for the Huawei Mate 20X in the UK,"said a spokesperson".

"Our production capacity is huge, and adding Huawei to the entity list won't have a huge impact on us". The severed ties with Google could potentially affect the Company's consumer electronics business considering many of its phones run on an Android operating system.

According to a report by French publication 01Net, the Honor 20 Pro, which was announced earlier this week at a launch event in London, failed to complete Google's Android certification process before Trump's banhammer fell last week.

At least publicly, Huawei says it's prepared.

"Chinese colleagues also deeply sympathize with the problems countered today by farmers in the US agriculture and animal husbandry industry", he said.

"Recently, some US politicians have continually fabricated rumors about Huawei but have never produced the clear evidence that countries have requested", Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said, when asked about Pompeo's remarks.
