The economic war between China and USA just moved a step further when Google was forced to cut ties with the Chinese tech giant Huawei.
The news just came out and took the internet world on sensation. President Trump passed the orders and Google has no other option except to comply with the same. Google will be suspending business with Huawei that requires the transfer of both software and hardware, and other technical and support services. But open source license services will be available to Chinese tech Giant.
A Google Spokesperson said “We are just complying with the order we received and reviewing the implications such decision will have. On existing devices, Google Play and the security protections from Google Play Protect will continue to function”.
Which Restrictions Huawei users are going to face
Even after the Ban, Current Users with Huawei smartphones will still be able to use Google’s apps and updates, but after upgrading to the next versions of their smartphones, they will not be able to Google’s “Android” and other popular applications including Google Play Store, YouTube, Gmail, etc.
It is also heard from some sources that chipmakers namely Intel, Qualcomm, Xilinx, and Broadcom have told their employees that they will not be supplying chips to Huawei until further notice.
Which Options are left for the Chinese Giant
It’s worth mentioning here that Huawei has been working on its OS since 2012. Looks like they got eyes on the back of their head since long. According to sources, Huawei could potentially launch its own OS by the end of 2019. After all, Huawei is the second largest seller of smartphones and dominates markets like China, Asia and other parts of the world.
However, this move from President Trump will no doubt disturb the company’s business globally. It seems that both of these countries are in no mood to quit. The economic war to dominate other has entered into a new arena which we can call as Technological war.
