SZTadir , 01 Jun 2019There is something wrong with the title that I can't put my... moreWithout Android they will hit the "app gap" wall most certainly, like Microsoft and Blackberry. They can use a forked Android and top of that of course can be their own Android skin EMUI. So most of Android apps will be available to their OS. Since Play Store is not working on China, most of Chinese OEMs have their own app stores. Probably Huawei already have their own Android app store.

But they can have no replacement to some Google apps. They can offer some sort of alternatives to Gmail and Maps I guess, but Youtube will hurt them must. Since no other alternative has such a rich content.

More importantly without ARM they just have no alternative. Through next year they can use next Kirin chipsets, but after that they seems like pretty much screwed. There are alternatives to ARM ISA like OPEN RISC or RISC-V, but most of them also American. I don't know if being open source helps the Huawei in that case, but even than they have to develop a CPU which is building it from the ground takes years. Not to mention Android apps probably won't work with another ISA. Android supports ARM, MIPS and x86/x64. Not to mention GPU and other parts.

Huawei said it right, this move will hurt US companies than it will them
