Hundreds flocked to online forums and social media looking for answers on whether their Android-powered phones would still be able to access Google services like Google Maps, Gmail or YouTube.

We know Huawei's future may be affected in different ways.

Some Internet users have expressed their support for the Chinese tech giant Huawei, after it was banned by the US government from cooperating with USA technology companies. When the deal finalises, Aptoide will have 900,000 apps to offer for Huawei phones, thus potentially replacing the Google Play Store.

"I'm very anxious. I'm the owner of a P30 Pro which I bought a month ago", Ania K from Poland wrote on Twitter. Duc wanted to know.

In computing, Microsoft has kept suspiciously quiet about whether it will block WIndows 10 updates on Huawei laptops like the acclaimed MateBook 14. Android Q is due to be released in August.

On Monday, the government issued a temporary waiver that lets Huawei receive security patches and updates for its existing phones. Adding the Chinese company's annual growth might have been shuddered by 20 percent following United States restrictions, Ren said in his first public comments following U.S. sanction, "It is expected that Huawei's growth may slow, but only slightly".

Ren said the measure had "little meaning" to Huawei, and his company had anticipated future conflict with the US and the company had been working on a backup plan to develop its own chips for many years. According to that publication, a Portugal-based alternative app store called Aptoide is already negotiating a partnership with Huawei to be the company's new app distribution platform.

Nearly immediately after the USA export ban, top American companies - including semiconductor giant Qualcomm Inc. and Alphabet Inc.'s Google - began cutting off the supply of critical components and services to Huawei, Caixin reported on Monday. If Huawei is forced to stop using the Google version of Android, if they create their own OS, those apps could break.

Kawhi shrugs off leg issue after win - 'I'm good'
Danny Green leads the Raptors with 2.5 made 3-pointers and averages 10.3 points while shooting 45.5 per cent from beyond the arc. In Game 3, Kawhi defended Giannis most of the night. "We've been throwing a lot at Kawhi, and we'll continue to do that".

It's also worth noting that the U.S. government has found precisely zero evidence that Huawei devices are being used to spy on anyone, so this blacklist is based entirely on conjecture. He added that the network will "hopefully" launch with Huawei handsets as initially planned if and when the situation changes.

It will still rely heavily on Huawei, the world's largest provider of networking gear and No. 2 smartphone vendor, as it's supplying much of the infrastructure for the new network, alongside Finnish equipment vendor Nokia Oyj.

Ren Zhengwei is also positive about Huawei's tech ambition. Trump administration officials have argued that Huawei's continued access to USA technology poses a national security risk, given concerns about intellectual property theft and cybersecurity that have overshadowed ongoing trade negotiations between the US and China.

"[The U.S.] is showing China and the world that the U.S. government controls Google".

Huawei has flatly denied the U.S charges.

The Huawei operating system will be rolled out at the earliest this autumn, or next spring at the latest, Mr Yu told Chinese publication Phoenix iFeng Tech in an article published on Tuesday. While this, in itself, is not really news, Yu Chengdong also said that this as-yet-unnamed OS would fully support existing Android applications.

"Don't point your fingers at USA firms".

Huawei is now embroiled in the US-China trade war, with trade tensions pushed notch higher when U.S Commerce Department ordered an executive order to ban Huawei from receiving USA technology. Now Huawei is becoming the victim of bullying by the U.S. administration. "It is an attack on the liberal, rules-based order".
