Published

Huawei is introducing its mobile services ecosystem – Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) to local developers around the globe and now the company has reached India, in order to grow its alternative to the Google Mobile Services.

HMS is a set of applications and services from Huawei for its device ecosystem and to provide a smarter, faster and better seamless experience. And since Huawei cannot use Google Mobile Services (GMS), the company has decided to expand HMS throughout its global users.

According to ET, Huawei’s subbrand Honor held talks with the top 150 apps developers in India to encourage them to integrate HMS in their apps and upload it on AppGallery.

“We have our own HMS and are trying to build a mobile ecosystem. Most of the key apps such as navigation, payments, gaming and messaging will be ready by December end.” Charles Peng, CEO of Huawei and Honor India Consumer Business Group.

To encourage developers to publish their apps with the HMS platform, Huawei announced an investment to $1 billion under the developer program called the “Shining Star 2.0”. This program also aims to cover the development, growth and marketing funds needed.

“Huawei HQ is in touch with China developers and the India developer base will help us in India as well as regions like Europe. In every country, we will focus on bringing top 100-150 apps to customers through HMS,” Peng added.

Back in May, Huawei placed under the trade by the US and banned from using Google Mobile Services and pre-installing applications such as Gmail and others.

Android is open source and doesn’t require any licensing that’s why Huawei launched Mate 30 smartphones running the open-source version of Android and used HMS instead of Google Mobile Services.

Huawei U.S. License

This is quite interesting news, the U.S. has granted billions of dollars worth of licenses to Huawei from November through April to get access to U.S.-made technologies while being listed under the U.S. Entity List.

According to the document released by the U.S. Congress and seen by Reuters, Huawei has received over 113 export licenses worth 61 billion US dollars were approved for suppliers to ship products. Alongside the Chinese tech giant, the U.S. has also approved, around 188 licenses (worth 42 billion dollars to the Chinese semiconductor maker – SMIC.

The data shows that Huawei’s ratio of license approval was around 69% of the overall request for approval that has been made, while SMIC got approval for 9 out of 10 license applications.

However, the entire process is a bit complicated and there are plenty of senators and politicians that have voted to retain strict restrictions on the Chinese tech maker.

Some of them have raised their doubts on the current U.S. president – Joe Biden on his low-level policy on Huawei and why it’s continues to get exceptions in terms of accessing technologies that could expand its business.

“It is just another example of President Biden not taking the economic and security threat posed by the Chinese Communist Party seriously,” said Republican Senator Marco Rubio.

Huawei U.S. License

U.S. Commerce Department Statement:

The Commerce Department has been the center of this entire matter since the beginning and imposed sanctions on Huawei. The commerce department said that the release of an “arbitrary snapshot” of license approvals “risks politicizing the licensing process and misrepresenting the national security determinations” made by the government.

Heart of the matter:

In May 2019, Huawei has been placed under the U.S. entity list, which bans the company from purchasing U.S.-made technologies such as important chipsets and so on. The company has also given up on making new chipsets due to the expansion of restrictions made by the U.S. government.

However, the information regarding the current licenses has not been disclosed but there are certain licenses that have been denied in the process.

Furthermore, a previous report reveals that Of the 113 licenses approved for Huawei after U.S. Entity List, 80 were for non-sensitive goods that only required a license because the recipient was blacklisted. For SMIC, the figure was 121 of 188.
