HUAWEI responded to a rumor about stopping updating its devices

18 August 2020, Tuesday By M. Konwar

Earlier, it was reported that HUAWEI can no longer use products based on American technologies and software. In addition, the company's smartphones will allegedly no longer be able to receive Android updates. HUAWEI decided to clarify the situation and gave a comment on further support for the devices.


"HUAWEI will continue to provide system updates and security fixes. All HUAWEI phones with Google Play pre-installed can still use the Play Store to download and update apps. HUAWEI phones without pre-installed Google Play can use AppGallery (HUAWEI's own app store) to get apps and security updates," the company said in a statement.

Information about the termination of the release of Android updates and security patches for the Chinese company's devices appeared after the term of the temporary license issued by the US Department of Commerce, which allowed HUAWEI to cooperate with American companies, including Google, ended on August 13.

However, the Chinese giant did not comment on the new August 17 ban, which would no longer allow HUAWEI and its subsidiaries to use products with US technology and software to manufacture or develop any parts, components, or equipment.
