No More Android Operating System for Huawei Mobile Phones

Google, the owner of Android mobile operating system, which powers most of the world’s smartphones,informed that it was beginning to cut ties with Huawei, which United STates considers a national security threat. Due to security threat, Google cided to stop providing Huawei with access, technical support and collaboration involving its proprietary apps and services going forward.

The Chinese telecom giant will no longer have access to Google’s proprietary services — which include the Gmail and Google Maps apps. Due to this several US chipmakers providing vital hardware for Huawei’s smartphones have stopped supplying the Chinese firm.

Due to ban of android usage, Huawei will only be able to use the open source version of Android. It will need to manually access any updates or software patches from Android Open Source Project, and also distribute the updates to users itself.

Huawei is the target of an intense campaign by Washington, which has been trying to persuade allies not to allow China a role in building next-generation 5G mobile networks.
