Huawei told it can't use Google apps on new phones

Huawei's next phone won't have Google apps

While there has been a temporary reprieve announced by the USA government, it does not apply to new products such as the Mate 30.

Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei is gearing up to launch its Mate 30 series of smartphones sometime in September (probably September 18), but it seems that the phones will be at a severe disadvantage over nearly every other Android phone in the market. But unfortunately, this will severely affect Huawei's operations in markets like India and Europe where consumers are highly used to and even dependent on Google's services and apps.

Huawei's upcoming flagship, the Mate 30 series, is expected to launch in September 2019-despite Huawei's ongoing issues with the US government.

President Donald Trump said last month that some exemptions would be allowed.

Huawei was added to the US Department of Commerce's Entity List in May after the US accused the Chinese company of violating trade sanctions against Iran. Europe, a market that didn't offer as much choice to consumers, received Huawei & Honor (amongst other Chinese players) with open arms. This means that the phone would not be allowed to launch with the Google Play app store or any of the variety of Google-made apps and services.

On a side note, Google didn't specify if it applied for a license to offer its Google Mobile Services to the Shenzhen-based phone maker, though it has said in the past that it wants to keep supplying Huawei and its sister brand, HONOR.

This will allow the company to continue trading with US companies in order to service and finish up work with current customers. Otherwise, we will continue to develop our own operating system and ecosystem.

"All devices continue to be covered by our manufacturer's warranty and will receive full-service support accordingly", the company said.

In what is disappointing news for Huawei fans around the globe, Google has stepped out of its "relationship with Huawei".

But no, we're seemingly back to square one - and this bad news for Huawei since they're prepping to launch their Mate 30 series very soon. Without the ability to ship devices with Google's own YouTube, Chrome, Gmail or Google Maps, Huawei's hardware offering suffers.

The company's developing its own "Harmony OS", but it's a long way off from being ready for smartphones.
