Google Showing A Sign Of Anxiety As Huawei To Launch Own OS?

Huawei devices will no longer ship with Facebook applications pre-installed in the latest blow for the beleaguered Chinese smartphone vendor. If Huawei's system is successful, Android is bound to lose some patronage especially from the vast Chinese OEMs which will, in turn, compromise the U.S. national interests.

Google said: "Like other U.S. companies, we're engaging with the Department of Commerce to ensure we're in full compliance with its requirements and temporary licence".

The California company revealed people with the existing Huawei smartphones with Facebook Apps will continue to be able to use and download app updates provided by Facebook.

Google also fears that the export ban would create a competitor to the US-made Operating Systems (OS), which would hurt the search engine giant's Android monopoly, Ars Technica reported on Friday.

The company has added that among the risks is the possibility of security breaches as the upcoming Huawei smartphones will get security updates directly from Google.

Furthermore, Huawei's operating system would lack Google services, including Google Play Store, so Huawei would have to come up with its own app store too.

Interviews with Democrats inside and outside Congress suggest this political logic: The later it gets in in 2019, the harder impeachment becomes.

"The fact that the US government has effectively banned Huawei from being able to roll out 5G wireless internet technologies in the country all but guarantees that the company will never gain a foothold in the States".

It hasn't been long since Google suspended its services for Huawei Technologies Co Ltd, soon after which, SD Association also closed its doors to the company. The launch is expected sometime around August or September, which is about the same time when Huawei's 90-day temporary respite from the U.S. trade ban ends.

What is Google saying about the ban against Huawei? .

Not something the USA would want.

According to Reuters, the change will only affect new phones.

That's the claim in a new report by the Financial Times, providing a peek into the lobbying effort that's going on behind the scenes as the New Cold War plays out in the world of technology. It pushed the company to fuel the efforts to launch its own OS, named Hongmeng, a hybrid version of Androidto counter the ban. One of the charges levied against Huawei includes its role to act as an agent of the Chinese government and to spy on American communications on their behalf.
