The ongoing dispute between China and The US has resulted in some tough times for Huawei and its devices, making it difficult for the Chinese smartphone giant to work with American companies like Google. While things started looking up recently when Huawei was offered a 90-day reprieve from this ban, Google has now told sources that Huawei’s upcoming Mate 30 flagship handset “cannot be sold with licensed Googled apps and services”.
The reason for this is that the reprieve offered by the US Government only applies to existing products and deal partnerships that Huawei has with US companies, meaning that any new product or deal would not be eligible for collaboration of any kind.
While there is no confirmation till yet, it’s possible for Google to seek an exemption from this ban for specific products. It was recently revealed that over 130 such applications have been submitted to the US Commerce department, although none of them have yet been granted.
