FT: companies can resume supplying Huawei with smartphone components

30 October 2020
As long as these components are not for Huawei's 5G business, which the US still views as a national security threat.

They make amazing products every year unlike other lazy stupid companies like Apple and Samsung that offers only incremental upgrade from the previous generation which makes no one wanting to upgrade. Huawei is different, every year they innovate and introduce new things.

Most western countries do the same. It's pretty common practice to encourage investment and innovation in the high tech industry. Most of the support is in terms of preferential loans (below the market interest rate) but the loans still need to be repaid

                The CCP would NOT stop their criminal actions until it dies. As for Huawei, no thanks, there are more products on the market that I trust better.

                  Honestly i feel bad and sorry for Huawei, and I'm very disappointed for Google and Samsung as whole, as Apple continues to bad the worst company for this year and it will be the next year.

                    Hold on Huawei !!!

                    Next week there will be a new President in US and the problems with Google will be over.

                        They have only 4G? No problem. They can get a 4G only version of flagships.

                          Fake BS against a global innovator just because the US can't keep up with Huawei in 5G tech. I hope Trump gets a good kick in his sack when he gets sacked in the coming months for all this nonsense. He ruined 5G roadmaps for many many countries around the globe because of these BS fake sanctions against a Private Corporation.

                            So it is ok to supply them with equipment for their WiFi products, that also manage internet. what a bunch of dumbasses in politics. This ban is just to rake in licensing fees.

                                Huawei make great products, but lets not pretend the CCP cares about people. They deserve every sanction possible until they stop their criminal actions.

                                  Vic, 30 Oct 2020But what about Google services? Without ones Huawei smartph... moreSince you're posting here I assume you are an enthusiast who should know there are ways to install Gapps and their full ecosystem on the new Huawei phones. Also it's not so hard to go to one of the well-known, popular smartphone-related forums and browse the thread about a particular model. There you'll find plenty of useful info about the ways to do that. The only restriction which still remains afterwards : Google Pay will not wotk with NFC because that model did not pass Google certification. You'll have to find an alternative which works for your bank or you'll need to find a bank which uses its own NFC payment system linked to your card. That's kind of annoying but not entirely game-changing.
