Huawei and Google have been working together for a long time until the US imposed business restrictions on Huawei and prohibited Google from sending software support to the company but now a new report hints that both companies are working together to overcome from this current crisis.
Google will provide software updates to existing Huawei devices for the next 90 days
According to Reuters, Huawei EU chief, Abraham Liu, said on Tuesday on Tuesday that the company is working with Google in response to trade restrictions imposed by the US.
“They (Google) have zero motivation to block us. We are working closely with Google to find out how Huawei can handle the situation and the impact from the U.S. Department of Commerce decision,” he said.
The EU chief told that we don’t have any reason to blame Google for its decision and it is too early to say what the consequences of this ban will be.
“Huawei is becoming the victim of the bullying by the U.S. administration. This is not just an attack against Huawei. It is an attack on the liberal, rules-based order,” Liu added.
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. Moreover, the company will now require a license to do business in the country which will likely to be denied.
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. The US Commerce Department said it will evaluate whether to continue the exemptions beyond 90 days.
This new exemption on Huawei allows Google to send software updates to Huawei phones including monthly security patches for the above-mentioned timespan.

Huawei and Saudi Telecom installs world’s first SuperLink network solution
Huawei and Saudi Telecom have developed the world’s first SuperLink network solution and installed it in Dammam, Saudi Arabia. The latest product delivers extraordinary performance and stability in terms of network operations.
The SuperLink solution mainly aims to improve network services in the region. As the name reflects, it comprises a single-link bandwidth of 10Gbps and provides advanced and high-frequency rates in 5G coverage.
Further, the excellent product supports a single antenna which saves 67% of the antenna area and 70% of the equipment. Also, the SuperLink network solution is the first product of Huawei and Saudi Telecom which uses a multi-frequency antenna and 4-in-1 CA ODU carrier collection.
To be mentioned, a multi-frequency antenna includes a variety of frequency bands. For instance 6GHz, 7GHz, 8GHz, 13GHz, 15GHz, and more. With the help of this mechanism, operators get relief from using a separate antenna every time while receiving a new frequency.
In addition, the 4-in-1 CA (Carrier Aggregation) ODU (Outdoor Unit) combines four components in one piece of equipment. Thus, it decreases the number of external units by 75%. Besides, it contains higher modulation functioning elements and large bandwidth that increases the single ODU capability by 500%.
With such elements, the Superlink solution can offer a network with efficient performance for minimal costs.
SuperLink solution will speed up 5G development
The Vice President of infrastructure at the Saudi Telecom Company (STC) – Eng. Bader A. Allhieb believes that the unique network solution will accelerate the 5G evolution in Saudi Arabia. Moreover, it will end the long-distance network coverage issues in suburban areas.
So far, Saudi Arabia has been using E-band bearers for distant places. However, the traditional solutions didn’t prove much effective for users. Hence, Saudi Telecom decided to collaborate with Huawei and deploy some meaningful products in the region.
On the flip side, Huawei said that it will continue to innovate new technologies that can contribute to the 5G evolution across the world.

Let’s look at and compare both of the logos:
The old one has a heart included with a heart along with a wavelength of the heartbeat. The rear color of the icon was orange. While the new Huawei Health app logo is plain an there’s it’s pure white. The heartbeat wavelength is removed and there’s a new cutout on the heart shape.
When we launched the app, we also found that the app launch screen has mixed and quite low contrast orange as compared to the initial one.
However, there are not much of changes made to the text or the slogan of the app. This is “Work out for better health”.
The latest changes are rolling out with version 13 and later. As it brings optimizations for the app’s user interface display and performance to improve the user experience.
