Google Support for Huawei Mobile Devices

I want a new phone from Fido if the android operating system for my Huawei phone will no longer be supported by Google!

Re: Google Support for Huawei Mobile Devices

 

Hey everyone, 

 

We understand your concerns and Google stated that basic services would still function on the Android operating system used in Huawei's current smartphones and existing smartphone owners would not lose access to its Google Play app store or security features.

 

Therefore, if you have a Huawei smartphone, you will continue to have access to Google apps. Google has also said that services like Google Play and the security protections from Google Play Protect will continue to function on existing Huawei devices.

 

Huawei Canada has also announced it will continue to provide security updates and after sales services to all existing Huawei and Honor smartphones, and to tablets that have already been sold or are still in stock globally.

 

You will also still be able to get Google Apps updates and Android dispatches.

 

If you have specific questions about Google’s announcement or Huawei’s operations, it would be best to contact them directly for further information.

 

Huawei will announce the support status of Android Q shortly, so please keep an eye out for Huawei’s announcement or reach out directly to Huawei Canada.

Re: Google Support for Huawei Mobile Devices

There's been a lot of misinformation on this topic (and also a lot of changes since the news was originally broken).  For instance, there's currently a three months reprieve on the ban.

 

This seems to be one of the best source of information at this time, as they are updating it as new development occur.

There is no mistake.

The 3 months are limited licenses. Just check.

I'm tired to have no answers.

Re: Google Support for Huawei Mobile Devices

2 uk operators and one Japanese operator stop selling Huawei's phone.

The main reason is there will not have access to Android update.

Hey @aihmar!

 

We moved your post to this thread as it deals with the same topic. 

 

Your phone will still be getting updates. Huawei Canada and Google have confirmed that existing Huawei devices will still get security updates and these devices are still able to get Google Apps updates and Android dispatches. 

 

We do hope this helps Smiley

Re: Google Support for Huawei Mobile Devices

Fido, Huawei Canada and Google need to very clear and confirm what existing Huawei phone (device) costumers will receive? 

Will it be "Updates" or "Upgrades" or "Both"?

Re: Google Support for Huawei Mobile Devices

Huawei Canada and Huawei Mobile Canada  are new Twitter accounts. Most likely, it will give us the most accurate, up-to-date info. 
Here is a statement from May 23 from Huawei Canada Tw acct. 

“Huawei will continue to provide security updates and after-sales services to all existing Huawei and Honor smartphone and tablet products, covering those that have been sold and that are still in stock globally.”

No news can be considered accurate until at least the third version of events, IMO. The word "Google" does not appear in the release. 

Then, there's this...(And lots of stuff is going on in the background as well.)

Re: Google Support for Huawei Mobile Devices

The future of Huawei looks very grim and judging from posts in the other forums existing Huawei customers might be left out in the cold. A long list of partners such as Arm and SD just dropped them to satifsfy the Trump ban. What is Fido's stance for their existing customers who have an Honor or Huawei phone, especially after Aug 13? Will I be stuck paying out my contract for a new phone as well any additional costs?
