Google and Huawei have unintentionally parted ways, a future without Android is the long-term outlook for the Chinese smartphone maker. Now a Financial Times report announces that Google is doing a lot in the background for Huawei and further cooperation. Also, there is the fundamental problem that Huawei has been blacklisted by American companies for weeks and is therefore excluded from doing business with them.
In the background, Google has important conversations with the US government. They want to obtain a permit to continue working with Huawei. Safety is an important argument. If Huawei relied on its own proprietary smartphone operating system in the future, security against hackers and other attacks might be even less guaranteed.
New OS too insecure
Sensitive data, which also affects US security, could in the future be unintentionally exchanged between people, one of whom is equipped with a new Huawei smartphone that has the new and at the same time vulnerable operating system. Such detours would make it possible that Huawei’s new operating system also poses a threat to the security of the United States.
Currently, Huawei’s ban is temporarily lifted until August, so Google can work with the manufacturer for existing Android devices. Basically, future devices are at higher risk of not being able to equip themselves with Android or Google services. Bitter for everyone, not just for Huawei.
