This is a crippling blow: What Google’s decision to cut ties with Huawei means for the Chinese tech firm

Google has just dealt one of the biggest smartphone makers in the world a crippling blow.

The company has revoked the Chinese tech giant Huawei’s Android license, meaning the firm is now limited to using Android Open Source Project, the barebones and Google-free version of Android. The move follows the Trump administration’s effectively barring Huawei from doing business with US firms.

The sudden change means new Huawei phones won’t have access to the most popular Google apps and services, and Huawei will be able to push Android security updates only once they’re available on AOSP, according to reports from Reuters and The Verge.
