Honor has unveiled its Honor 20 series flagship on May 21 in London, UK but the company still don’t have an availability date to order Honor 20 phones, which is possibly an effect of Android service restriction on Huawei.
According to WinFuture, the Honor 20 Pro has not completed its Android certification, which would stop the company from selling this phone in the European market and also won’t receive any Google services related to security patches and applications.
However, the phone can be shipped with the Android OS but won’t be able to access Google’s main services and apps that can be only achieved through Android license.
Apart from Honor 20 Pro, the regular Honor 20 had received its Android license before Google’s services ban and eligible to enter in the market by June.
Still, it’s expected that the company is working closely with Android and can come up with a solution for this issue to get a grab a launch for Honor 20 Pro.
Last week, The US Commerce Department added Huawei into the trade blacklist and imposed restrictions that’ll make it very difficult for the company to do business with American firms.
Following the US Commerce Department, Google also suspended its business with Huawei and canceled sharing hardware, software, and its services except for the ones with open source license.
Later on, the US eased its restriction on Huawei and provided a temporary license for 90 days to manage the business with its existing users.
This new exemption on Huawei allows Google to send software updates to Huawei phones including monthly security patches for the above-mentioned timespan.
