It has been a rough few months for Chinese tech maker Huawei after being targeted by the Trump leaded government. The tech giant has been in the center of the trade dispute between the US and China. The US government imposed a ban on Huawei stopping it from doing businesses with companies located in the US. In compliance with the ban, Google suspended Huawei from using Its Android OS as well as Google Services and Play Store.
Huawei responded by announcing that it is developing its own OS called the OAK OS. According to the company, the OS was scheduled for launch in August or September. The company also when further by inviting developers to publish apps on its App Store. After almost a month of trauma, the US government has now announced that the tech giant could start doing business again with company in the US. This was made known during the at the G20 summit held in Japan.
President Trump said that he will allow US companies, sell their equipment to Huawei Technologies Co. after talks with China’s President Xi Jinping today. According to him, there is no security problem involved with US companies selling the equipment to Huawei.
Trump in his statement said;
These are American companies producing the products. This is complex … highly scientific. We are the only one with the technology. I have agreed to allow them to continue selling the products … I like our companies selling things to others … very complex things. These are not things easy to make … our companies were very upset, but we are allowing them. So if it is not a national security issue, we are allowing them to sell.
However, there is still no clarity in this and most likely, HUAWEI will be allowed to get components like Qualcomm SoC, Android OS from Google, etc. HUAWEI is still on the “Entity List” by the US Government that bars the company from dealing with American companies. Trump also said that a trade agreement with HUAWEI will be held sometime later, probably on Tuesday.
