Huawei and its complicated relationship with the US

huawei-smartphone-android-google-intel-qualcomm-barred-government-donald-trump-united-states-usa-china-import-telephony Several foreign companies were affected, Giants such as China's Huawei "were prevented" to serve the American market. The decision of the current United States government is one of the measures to prevent spying on other countries, and everyone knows that the Americans and Chinese do not have such a "loving" relationship. The US government suspected that Huawei was a good friend of China and hosted reports of its users for Chinese espionage. Such allegations were denied by the company. In a last minute measure the US Department of Commerce provisionally grants a general trading license of products and services that eventually Huawei offers in the country. Such "carte blanche" is valid until 19 August. Huawei is the largest telecommunications company in China and one of the largest in the world. Her trade (so far) strong in countries like the United States, thanks to her technologies like 5G were in full swing. Now it looks like the US will have significant losses when it comes to this technology and may delay the implementation of 5G. in the country or maybe make it unfeasible. One of the company's goals was to surpass the current smartphone sales leader in 2020, Samsung, but with this new barrier, it seems that the goal is not so simple. For even with the new provisional license your future on uncertain American soil.

No Intel, Qualcomm, and Google?

Responsible for producing chips for its equipment, the Intel and Qualcomm joined government decision and severed relations with Chinese company. However, Huawei seemed to be expecting such a government decision. Known for storing chip stocks from US-based partners, Huawei has for years been developing technologies that would not force its full reliance on Qualcomm with its Snapdragon and Intel, such as its chips made with HiSilicon Kirin. Not only did Qualcomm and Intel sever relations with Huawei, Google withdrew its right to use Android and banned the company from the Google Play Store. With the new decision and license offered by the US Department of Commerce, companies are returning their business with Huawei. The provisional measure aims not to impact the country's infrastructure and cause inconvenience to users. The question remains if there is an extension, or if the company becomes "barred" again with the end of the license.

Huawei without Android, at least as it was

After August 19, Huawei may be unable to ship its handsets with "conventional" Android because it does not get the "extension" of US trade licensing, so the company could go two ways: Using the version Open Source from Android, without the proprietary technologies of Google or develop its own system.

It seems that the second option is the one adopted by the Chinese, with your developing system HongMeng OSIt seems like a matter of time for the company not to need Android. With its own app store, HongMeng OS comes bundled with their devices. It is unclear whether the same developed from scratch, or is based on Android. I can only judge that if the system does not run Android applications, the imminent failure of the company, we have Windows Phone as an example. If HongMeng OS can run Android games and apps, users' adoption may not be so affected. Recalling that in China several apps and websites are blocked, and even without a Google Play Store Huawei could very well maintain their new devices. After all, users are more concerned with games and applications (I speak of the lay public, of course). alternative-android-huawei-HongMeng-OS

For Huawei device owners

Google has reported that owners of Huawei devices released earlier that access the Play Store will not be prevented from receiving security updates or enhancements from their smartphones. The installation of apps will continue without any problem. The equipment will also work normally in the United States. Now the question is whether this license is provisional or if the government can "add Huawei to the whitelist in the future", only the unfolding of this story can tell. But let it be clear that the purpose of this provisional license is not to appease the situation or "relieve for the side of Huawei". Apparently, the US government realized that such a measure, at least for the time being untiring and the damage would be extreme. There were even rumors of severe network infrastructure failures.

What do you think about this situation? It seems that we are in a "new cold war", this time using technology and economics as weapons (no space race). Survive those who remain firm, even in the midst of market changes (these are totally "artificial" changes).

In short this control, I know that there may be espionage, however it seems that the US does not commit this type of crime (). something complicated, and I leave this "busha" for you, so continue this chat in our Diolinux Plus forum.

Until the next post, no fights in the comments huh! Let us be complacent with the opinion of others.

I wait for you here on the blog Diolinux, SYSTEMATICALLY!
