Keep your Huawei phones as the Google Ban in the US could soon be lifted

Don't sell your phone just yet

Google Mobile Services may soon return to Huawei phones

Things haven’t been going particularly well for Huawei this year.

Earlier in May, an executive order from the US government restricted companies from working with Huawei after they deemed the Chinese tech company a national security risk.

That prevented Huawei future phones from accessing updates from Google Mobile Services (GMS), which include Google Play Services, Google Play Store and apps. Currently, the Google ban technically hasn’t gone into effect since the government issued a temporary license which expires in November.

Google Ban may be lifted

A few days ago, a report by The New York Times says the Trump administration plans to soon issue licenses allowing some American companies to supply nonsensitive goods to the Chinese telecom giant Huawei.

If that’s true, GMS could return to Huawei devices overnight when the ban is lifted.

Huawei CEO, Richard Yu also said they are ready to roll out GMS to new devices (Mate 30) as soon as the US ban is lifted.

Keep your fingers crossed

You might want to keep your Huawei phone for now and hope the license gets approved soon since the Huawei P30 Pro is undoubtedly still one of the best camera phones around, even by today standards.
