Huawei Smartphones banned by Google

New Huawei smartphones are set to lose access to some Google apps like YouTube and Maps and the next version of Android to be launched later this year.

Details:

  • This comes after the US government sought to blacklist Chinese company Huawei around the world.
  • Google's suspension follows a report calling for Huawei to be prevented from supplying 5G mobile networks in the UK, because its operations are "subject to influence by the Chinese state".
  • Australia, which also shares intelligence with the UK, has already moved to ban Huawei as a supplier for its future 5G network.
  • Huawei has always insisted it is a privately held company, independent of the Chinese state, owned largely by its employees, and has worked supplying phone technology in the UK for 15 years without problems.
