Published

Unveiled on September 19, Huawei Mate 30 series has now begun expanding outside of the Chinese territory to Malaysia, Singapore, the Philippines, European countries. And the one thing that has been confirmed that this flagship lineup is rolling out Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) and not with the Google Mobile Services (GMS).

For your information, the Huawei Mate 30 series runs the open-source version of Android 10 but doesn’t come with Google services and applications due to the US trade ban. Since Huawei cannot certify its new smartphones from Google, the company has decided to move forward with HMS.

Under the initial efforts, Huawei has bet on third-party developers to expand the HMS ecosystem and announced an investment of US $1 billion under the developer program called the “Shining Star” that will provide support for developers willing to develop with HMS.

Although, the shining star program is surely a big move from Huawei, yet still Google services are meant to serve Android and its app ecosystem is way too bigger than any OS in the market that has been developed throughout a long timeline.

However, Huawei doesn’t have to work from scratch because it already operating its set of mobile services and applications that come pre-installed on its smartphones including Huawei AppGallery, Assistant and Browser; core services like HUAWEI Cloud, wallet and Skytone; and content services like HUAWEI Video, Music and Reader. As well as services related to IoT and cross-device platform.

So, the only and big challenge for the company is to grow its app ecosystem for global users to replace its current reliance on GMS, which may create some hurdles in sales of Mate 30 series in the global market.

It’s been a long time since the US administration is making accusations against Huawei and banned it as a national security threat. But there’s a new addition to this story.

According to Reuters, US federal communication on Friday said to adopt final rules and banned the sale or import of new equipment made by Huawei citing “an unacceptable risk” to U.S national security.

Other than Huawei, the US fed accused and stopped sales from China’s surveillance equipment maker Dahua Tech, Hikvision, and telecom firm Hytera communication.

FCC Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel said these rules are an important part of the US’s ongoing actions to protect the American people from national security threats involving telecommunications. However, Jessica didn’t cite any evidence of espionage.

So far, Huawei has not commented on this decision but the company has been continuously denying posing a security risk to the U.S.

Background:

FCC proposed such a ban on equipment and devices in a list of companies proposed last year. However, it’s derived from Entity List.

In 2019, the former U.S. president, Donald Trump announced the Entity List. It targets tech giants such as Huawei from getting key U.S. technologies to build new products such as smartphones or network equipment.

In the following year, FCC designated Huawei as a national security threat alongside ZTE. The US ordered to the removal of Huawei from the country’s network infrastructure. On the hand, the commission has passed a bill to provide 1.8 billion USD in assistance for service providers to remove Huawei-made gears.

Still, U.S. carriers need more funds than the actual one that was announced by the FCC. The subsidy will only cover around 20-40% of the equipment, while they’ll have to pay the rest of the price from their own funds.

The new ban on Huawei and other Chinese companies may create some headlines for the U.S. in the name of national security. Yet, the US is not showing any evidence of how Huawei poses national security.
