Read: Huawei’s Official Statement On Android Ban

Here’s the official word from the company

Huawei has officially broken their silence on the Google ban. The company through their local PR arm has sent an official statement regarding the Android suspension report that should calm people’s nerves.

There’s been a couple of sensationalistic headlines floating around that suggest that current owners of Huawei (and by extension) Honor phones might have their access to Google and its services cut because of the US ban but obviously that’s not true. Huawei has promised to “continue to provide security updates and after-sales services to all existing Huawei and Honor smartphone and tablet products, covering those that have been sold and that are still in stock globally”.

Check out the official statement below:

Huawei has made substantial contributions to the development and growth of Android around the world. As one of Android’s key global partners, we have worked closely with their open-source platform to develop an ecosystem that has benefitted both users and the industry.

Huawei will continue to provide security updates and after-sales services to all existing Huawei and Honor smartphone and tablet products, covering those that have been sold and that are still in stock globally.

We will continue to build a safe and sustainable software ecosystem, in order to provide the best experience for all users globally.

  1. There’s nothing in that statement that confirms that their new devices will continue to have access to Google services. If anything, “WE WILL CONTINUE TO BUILD A SAFE AND SUSTAINABLE SOFTWARE ECOSYSTEM” likely means that their future phones will have their own app store / ecosystem, like their Chinese models (i.e. no Google services).

    They did confirm that they will continue to provide security updates though, which is good.

  2. No point of keeping them as this is just a start. Exisiting users may still access Google services for now. But we don’t know what’s going to happen next. So either sell them now or you cant sell them anymore in the future.
