Microsoft Just Yanked Huawei Laptops From Its Online Store

The Shenzhen-based firm the world's second-largest smartphone maker

How will existing Huawei users be affected? While these claims are true or now, we are likely to see later this year.

"In such a critical moment, I'm grateful to USA companies, as they've contributed a lot to Huawei's development and showed their conscientiousness on the matter", Ren said.

Google's restriction on the software services it provides Huawei follows the US Trump administration's order last week that limited the Chinese company's access to American technology.

Huawei will be able to continue using Android, it is open source after all, though technical support is only supplied to licenced partners, while any updates are rolled out through the open source much later than for the licenced one. This was by design: The United States is now involved in a quickly escalating trade war with China, and the presidential administration believes that this kind of threat will get China to bow to its demands.

Despite the Google ban, Huawei said Tuesday that its latest smartphone, the Honor Pro 20, will use Android.

Y! Mobile, owned by Japanese technology company Softbank, said sales of the Huawei P30 lite, set for May 24, have been delayed, and advance orders were canceled.

Embattled Chinese tech firm Huawei has accused the United States of "bullying" and said it is working with Google to fight back against potentially crippling trade restrictions.

And he added: "To build a new ecosystem is a big thing, we should take it step by step".

"This is not just an attack against Huawei", a company representative told Reuters.

However, no carve-out was made for any new smartphones or networks Huawei is preparing to roll out in the US.

The Commerce Department said it will evaluate whether to extend the license period beyond 90 days. Huawei might also have a tough time persuading the developers to make changes suitable for their platform.

A Huawei executive has previously mentioned the challenges of creating an operating system.

Experts say President Trump may have blacklisted Huawei to squeeze trade concessions from China in the ongoing spat between the world's largest economies.

It had been predictable that the USA would continue to go after Huawei and the company had been stockpiling products and started work on alternatives, he said.

Microsoft has also held off on making any definitive statements on whether it will continue to permit updates to Huawei devices running Windows 10, according to The Verge.
