One of Huawei’s biggest trade war headaches has just got worse, as an unofficial workaround to the Trump administration ban on using Google apps and services has been quashed.
Huawei CBG South Africa general manager Likun Zhao confirmed that the roll-out of the Mate 30 Pro in South Africa has been postponed.
The impact of the Trump administration’s blacklisting of Huawei was laid bare on Thursday as the Chinese company unveiled a flagship Android-powered smartphone that lacks any licensed Google apps.
Huawei has launched its latest flagship smartphone but made little mention of the issues faced by a US trade ban restricting it from pre-installing Google apps.
Huawei is all set to unveil its latest flagship smartphones later on Thursday. They are likely to be the first not carrying core Google apps amid an ongoing trade dispute with the US government.
Huawei has confirmed it will unveil its next flagship smartphone later this month, despite suggestions from Google that it will not be able to use its apps and services on the new device.
The trade war between the US and China is about to take its biggest bite out of Huawei yet, after Google confirmed the upcoming Huawei flagship phone won’t have licensed Google apps.
