Huawei ban got postponed for 90 days by US goverment

Yesterday, it was quite a boom for Huawei, after Google suspended operations with Huawei, as part of an American campaign against this Chinese company. After that, other American companies, like Qualcom, also said they would cut off all connections with this Chinese company. This all represents one big blow for the company which is currently the second largest smartphone manufacturer in the world.

However, in order to ease the passion for these sanctions a bit, the US government has decided to postpone the ban for 90 days. This means that Huawei is currently being re-licensed for Google products, but it is still not allowed to do business with hardware makers, so it is forbidden to buy US parts and components to manufacture new products without authorization.

In short, this temporary license will allow operations to continue for existing users of Huawei mobile phones, to help them offer software updates for their Huawei and Honor devices.

To what extent Huawei will be hit by the blacklist of the US government is not yet known. What is also interesting is that today they will present their Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro smartphones, and by law and ban, they can not present any new phone that will have Google Play services.

The suspension of the ban, which was granted for a period of 90 days, expires on August 19th. How will this Chinese company get out of this situation and how it will bypass all these barriers remains to be seen.
