Google Seeks Huawei Trade Exemption

Ahead of that launch, the company has quietly announced a Lite variant in the series called the Huawei P40 Lite. With over 350 million Huawei phones users to date, there are more than 1,700 Quick Apps released globally, a 200 per cent growth year-on-year.

Meanwhile, few users still prefer to sideload Google Services on their Huawei phones.

Huawei plans on almost doubling that number by aiming to have 73 top local apps that are most used by Huawei customers to be integrated with its AppGallery by March 2020, before the launch of its flagship phone, Huawei P40, Khing Seng said. However, the software is built around the Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) core and not Google Mobile Services (GMS) core, which means no access to essential Google services like Play Store, Gmail, and Maps among others.

According to Google CEO, Sundar Pichai, the company has a presence in over half of the USA states, but it intends to target 11 states, namely Colorado, Georgia, Massachusetts, Nebraska, Oklahoma, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, California and Washington, with this new investment. We also don't know where else the phone will be on sale, but we don't expect it to come to the United States considering Huawei often doesn't introduce its phones in that market.

Huawei have been accelerating their development on the Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) since losing its Android license in May 2019. The latter blog claims that Google has formally asked the White House to lift the ban to provide its services to Huawei but it hasn't yet received a timeframe for an answer.

Huawei may have just unveiled its new Mate XS foldable phone and MatePad Pro 5G tablets with a flourish at a big event, but the company has quietly introduced the first member of its upcoming P40 family of smartphones separately. Huawei Mobile CEO Richard Yu this lack is soon thinks closed. It is still not clear whether Google will get an exemption to work with Huawei.

For those who buy into the Huawei and Honor ecosystem there is some relief, and right now it is possible to add Google services to these devices after purchase.

Huawei represents a huge chunk of the market all around the world.
