Dependency on business makes trouble at one point. Business needs own control on products and service. Both US and China are feeling these facts. Also business needs better technology in a competitive market.
Huawei sells its first smartphones without a Google Play store and services – above all the top model P40 Pro. While the hardware is mostly convincing, Google’s own alternative still feels like a patchwork. Since May 2019, US companies have only been allowed to trade with the Chinese technology group Huawei with a special permit. The sanctions were extended by Donald Trump for another year in May 2020. This not only includes business with hardware partners and suppliers such as Qualcomm, Broadcom, and Intel, but also the use of Google services: This means that new smartphone models such as the Mate 30 Pro and the Huawei P40 Pro (test) are no longer allowed equipped with Google’s many services, apps such as Google Maps, Gmail or Youtube and the Play Store.
The US and China trade disputes are not very new. The U.S. is fighting in the trade dispute with China and is cutting off Huawei’s access to American semiconductor technology. It is true that America has much better semiconductor technology. China also threatened a restriction onCisco, Apple, or Boeing as a counter.
