BQ CEO:

BQ CEO Vladimir Puznov told Gazta.Ru that new BQ phones will launch without Google Mobile Services (GMS). However, the already launched devices will continue to work as usual with Android services without any issues.

Puznov was the first person to inform that his company has been banned from using Android core services on BQ devices due to the US sanctions of export or re-export as well as the transfer of essential technologies originated from the U.S. or U.S. based technologies.

“We believe that this [license revocation] will affect the entire market, including foreign manufacturers. It is likely that all Google services in the Russian Federation will be turned off. No official information from Google has yet been received. We assume that this will happen as suddenly as the suspension of licensing,” concluded Puzanov.
