Customers Need Not Worry About Their Huawei Devices
There has been a lot of speculations and
news regarding Huawei and the US Government over the past couple of days. Much
like any other hot topic, it comes with a fair amount of assumptions, misinformation
and miscommunication. Huawei has risen to being the second largest smartphone
maker in the world which is also the spot it enjoys in Pakistan currently.
For the convenience of everyone, after
intensive research, we have collected statements available to the public online
and put together a quick guide on some of the concerns, questions and misconceptions
customers have regarding their Huawei devices.
Your Huawei device will not stop working
There has been a lot of confusion amongst
owners of Huawei phones that their phones will stop working however that is
simply not true. Your phone will continue to operate just like it normally does
like any other phone. It will also continue to be serviced by Huawei. In a
public statement, the company mentioned:
“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.”
Your phone will receive its usual updates
The good news is that all phones that have
been released by Huawei, be it purchased or in store will continue to receive security
updates for Android and regular Google app updates from the Google Play Store. Here
is Google’s statement:
“We are complying with the order and
reviewing the implications. For users of our services, Google Play and the
security protections from Google Play Protect will continue to function on
existing Huawei devices,” a spokesperson told us.
So there you have it. As Google’s official
statement suggests, Huawei’s current devices will have complete access to the
Play Store and get security updates from Android.
Huawei is one of the biggest Android partners and a
When you purchase a Huawei product, you must
know you are buying from one of the largest Android partners with the most
innovative technology. Huawei promises to continue providing support for all
its devices for the whole lifetime of that phone.
It’s also worth
noticing Huawei stops at nothing with plans for launching new phones. The Honor
20 was recently launched globally while a new Y series phone from Huawei is
also all set for a release soon. This means that Huawei is confident in its
products and willing to support the end-user whatever the outcome of the
current issue at hand be.
