Huawei can’t launch new Android smartphones with Google apps before May 2021 as Trump extends trade ban

The last few smartphones launched by Huawei and its sub-brand Honor don’t come with Google Mobile Services (GMS) or the Google Play Store. Instead, they feature Huawei’s own alternatives to these services, namely Huawei Mobile Services Core (HMS Core) and Huawei AppGallery. This is due to the fact that on May 15th, 2019, U.President Donald Trump signed Executive Order 13873, declaring a “national emergency” under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, in order to limit the ability of U.companies to do business with entities deemed to be national security threats, including Huawei and its subsidiaries.
