Huawei also states that its AppGallery has over 270 million monthly active users, although detailed app store data might be more important for developers contemplating publishing on Huawei's app store.

Owners of these smartphone will still be able to download these apps to their devices and they will also get updates from the Play Store. This is because Huawei has no other choice than to produce an insecure operating system. Estimates show that Huawei is now the second largest global smartphone manufacturer worldwide, ahead of American giant Apple with its sights set on supplanting Samsung somewhere down the line. Well, better late than never! However, this is only available to the smartphones that have been bought by users. The firm even touts it publicly, telling developers that "In 2018, more than 270 million HUAWEI users access apps through HUAWEI AppGallery each month". In a combination, they have almost 6 billion active users globally, according to a report by Smart in Sights.

In May, the Trump administration announced a fresh set of measures targeting Huawei, including giving the commerce department power to ban the Chinese firm from selling 5G equipment in the USA, as well as a ban on American companies selling their products to the Chinese group, Xinhua news agency reported on Monday.

Not only has none of the remaining women won a Grand Slam trophy, none has participated in a major final. The Queenslander said it's incredible to be in the final and that it will be exciting for both players.

Then came the USA government placing Huawei and its affiliates on a trade blacklist that restricts the company from buying services and parts from U.S. companies without approval.

The world's number one manufacturer of telecommunications equipment and number two smartphone vendor is under siege from all sides of the mobile industry as a result of mounting USA political pressure, but both officially and unofficially, Huawei has repeatedly suggested contingency plans are in place to tackle a prospective "worst-case scenario". And, as with Samsung taking its Android-powered Galaxy smartwatches to Tizen some years ago, the last thing Google wants is its OEMs launching a non-Google OS. This will allow Huawei to make alternate arrangements before the ban is completely in effect starting August 19. You know what that means, right?
