Future versions of Huawei phones, however, will not have access to the Google Playstore and its apps unless the U.S. government changes course. This is said to have been created as a failsafe should Huawei ever lose access to Android; it would potentially be installed on upcoming phones in place of Google's operating system.
Google is concerned that an Android version from Huawei would be more susceptible to being hacked, as Google would not be able to update it.
Google has made the argument that whatever OS Huawei develops will be less secure than Google's Android.
Google is not the only tech company that will have to cut ties with Huawei, meanwhile.
But it's not clear if buyers of new Huawei devices will be able to install Facebook's apps on their own. However, it looks like the company's new operating system could be called "Oak OS", as revealed by Globaltimes today.
Huawei has previously stated that it is prepared for these disruptions, and multiple reports show that it is working on its own operating system to ensure that its devices remain functional and compatible with Android applications.
Ian Levy, Technical Director of Britain's National Cyber Security Centre, part of the GCHQ signals intelligence agency, recently said that despite Huawei's promises to invest $2 billion in fixing its products security issues past year, it hasn't begun to address them.
What just happened? Another day, another U.S. company distancing itself from Huawei.
These companies and organisations include Google, Intel, ARM, and various standards associations which present a challenge for the implementation of standardised smartphone technology.
Last month, Huawei was blacklisted by the U.S. government, which argued that its 5G infrastructure could be used by the Chinese government for espionage.
The US administration in May added Huawei to a trade blacklist. What if Samsung and others decide to move in similar directions once Huawei proves that it can be done in Europe and other global markets? US officials are concerned that Huawei's handsets and networking equipment contain a hidden backdoor that acts as a conduit to pass sensitive information along to Beijing.
