Huawei’s additions to the so-called ‘Entity-List’ forbids the use of Android services in Huawei’s future smartphones but a recent interview of Huawei executive reveals that Google still willing to supply its services to the company.
In an interview at Huawei’s headquarters in Shenzhen, Kevin Ho, the president of the handsets business said his company is moving forward with the expectation that Google’s waiver will be granted, enabling the use of Android’s OS on new Huawei scheduled for launch later this year, reported YahooFinance.
“Google is still trying to supply to Huawei,” Ho said. “We have had several conversations about how to collaborate.”
Google did not respond to a request for comment. Intel, another major U.S. supplier of Huawei, said it’s working hard in Washington in order to continue to sell to Huawei.
The US Commerce Department added Huawei into the trade blacklist in May, which bars the tech giant from doing business with the US firms, meanwhile, the commerce has provided 90 days reprieve to continue serving its existing users, as well as an allowance to use Android and its software updates.
