According to sources separately sent to the site to Reuters, Google has cut off relations business with Huawei , after President Donald Trump signed a decree promulgating the state of emergency , banning all telecommunications networks used by the US equipment of Huawei or corporations from “hostile nations”. This means, Google will not cooperate with Huawei by transferring software, hardware and supporting them in technology . Huawei will have to find open source technology sources, or develop its own technology to continue creating new smartphones , as well as the technology devices they develop with the help of Google.
Of course, in the country, Huawei will have no problem, because they have been developing their own operating system in case American corporations cooperate with them to cut ties. Now the concern has happened and Huawei will have to create a new OS for its smartphone devices. Although in the home market of China, Huawei will be unharmed, but in the international market, it is inevitable that Google will stop cooperating in a bid to compete with the other two leading brands. market share of smartphones with them, that is Samsung and Apple.
According to Reuters, “Huawei will only be allowed to use the public version of Android from now on , and will not be able to receive exclusive applications and services from Google.”
After last Thursday, Huawei Technologies Co Ltd was blacklisted for companies that were not traded with US partners, after President Trump signed the decree. On Friday, the US Department of Commerce said it was considering lowering its ban on Huawei to “prevent disruption in the supply of equipment and operation of existing telecommunications systems.” But it is in the infrastructure equipment segment, and the mobile device software segment is another story.
In addition, it is unclear how the US prohibits Huawei from affecting the global supply chain system. Many experts believe that Huawei’s chip development segment will not be able to continue to operate effectively as it does without the help of American businesses.
Currently according to Google, there are about 2.5 billion Android devices worldwide. Huawei is one of the corporations with the highest number of Android devices. Of course, Google’s stay with Huawei does not affect the AOSP version, the Open Source Project Android, the open source project anyone wants to use, but in return, Huawei will not have the most important thing that many companies are having It is Google’s own support to develop its own applications and services.
In March, Eric Xu, Huawei’s rotating president, declared frankly: “Google or the Android community has absolutely no right to prohibit us from using open source resources.”He is right, but Google’s move means that, from now on, all of Huawei’s smartphone devices will not have Gmail, YouTube, Chrome, nor will Google Play Store be available for users to install. applications into the machine. It is likely that Huawei’s current devices, sold before the day Google announced it would cut the partnership, would not be affected.
Meanwhile in China, most of the above Google services are banned by the virtual Great Wall that Huawei developed for the Chinese government, instead people use similar services, From Social network, shopping apps to app markets developed by corporations like Tencent or Baidu. So in the home market, the fact that Google cuts off relations with Huawei will not make much sense. Huawei’s most affected market will be Europe, its second largest market. “Owning proprietary Google applications is a prerequisite for a smartphone company to compete in regions like Europe,” said Geoff Blaber, CSS Insight vice president.
Following Google , all three of America’s largest semiconductor chip makers and globally , Intel , Qualcomm and Broadcom all stopped cooperating with Huawei after President Trump declared a state of emergency. According to Bloomberg, this notice is effective immediately and the employees of the companies mentioned above are required to stop all cooperation until further notice.
Jobs GoogleThe announcement of ceasing to cooperate with Huawei is a shocking information and at least Google doesn’t feel lonely when chip makers also join. Huawei already has SoC chips for its smartphhone but they still have to rely heavily on US companies for the chips that integrate inside. More specifically, Qualcomm provides network modem chips and other processor chips while Intel is the main CPU supplier for Huawei-branded servers and laptops. Broadcom provided Huawei with switching chips on network devices.
According to Bloomberg, Huawei has foreseen what is detrimental to them so they have stored enough chips from US partners so they can use it for at least the next 3 months, enough time for both parties. can reach an agreement to remove this ban. Or enough for them to complete their own self-developed chip.
Huawei is currently the world’s second largest smartphone manufacturer and depends largely on software from Google.Currently, Google and Qualcomm have stopped cooperating in providing software and chips for smartphones and computers, only Intel, and Microsoft is not clear whether or not to do the same.
