In May, U.S. President Donald Trump signed an executive order declaring the United States in a "state of emergency." American companies are not allowed to use telecommunications equipment made by companies that pose a threat to national security. After that, the U.S. Department of Commerce will officiallyHUAWEIHuawei and dozens of its subsidiaries are on the "entity list". That is to say, without the approval of the U.S. government, Huawei will not be able to buy components and technologies from U.S. companies, including Google.
With the exception of publicly accessible services licensed through open code sources, Google temporarily suspended all business transactions with Huawei, including hardware and software transfers and the provision of related technologies. As a result, Huawei's recently released Mate 30 series uses the AOSP (Android Open Source Project, Google-led open source project plan, which includes a basic version of the Android kernel operating system that anyone can use), and has built into Huawei's own app store on its new overseas version. However, Huawei had also said it could push Google Play to the Mate 30 series overnight if the United States was willing to lift the ban.
It is worth mentioning that there has been a manual installation of Google applications on Huawei's new machines online, but this is not an official solution and is now blocked by Google.
The good news is that at a meeting last week, President Trump began to "turn on the green light" for a handful of American companies, approving permits to allow them to work with Huawei around the government's ban this year.
However, the New York Times also said the license to allow U.S. companies to work with Huawei could be seen in part as a goodwill to ease tensions between China and the United States, but the actual effect could be limited-because as early as June, Trump said U.S. companies could sell parts to Huawei without major security issues. Moreover, the permits needed to work with Huawei were issued by the Commerce Department, but people familiar with the Commerce Department told the media that "for the time being, the situation has not changed."
The New York Times also said that despite the ban, many companies still maintain partnerships with Huawei-they will avoid marking the goods as "made in the United States," and will provide Huawei with parts they make outside the United States.
American chipmaker Micron ([地名] [越南] My Quang ) Chief Executive Sanjay Mehrotra said at a June earnings conference that the company briefly stopped deliveries to Huawei, but resumed cooperation after Micron reviewed the entity list rules and confirmed that it could legally supply to Huawei. It is reported that Huawei was Micron's biggest customer last year.
However, it is not known which companies will be involved in Trump's approval of the license and how the move will affect Huawei.
