And now it remains to be seen how the trade war will be resolved, and whether Huawei will be allowed to do business with firms in the US going forward. He said that it's wrong to connect Huawei's products with politics.

The Commerce Department said it gave the grace period to give US companies time to adjust and prepare to cut out Huawei. It will likely have implications beyond the United States, too, as Huawei phones are popular worldwide and not being able to improve the base software is going to be a huge problem for the company's customer base.

"If Huawei [phones] can not be updated by Google's Android then what's the point of buying it?" Thanks to an executive signed by US President Donald Trump, US-based companies have had to nix their support for the Chinese technology manufacturer.

The U.S. concerns may be explained by the 2017 Chinese law requiring Huawei and all other firms to cooperate with Chinese government intelligence agencies. The company is also promising that it's been prepping a mobile OS to replace Android as a Plan B for its devices, which could be ready as soon as later this year.

In response to Google denying access to updates of its Android operating system, homegrown Chinese smartphone maker Huawei Technologies is set to release its own operating system as early as this year fall. This is not just an attack against Huawei. This will present Huawei "really with a very tough time", he said.

This is a major hit to Huawei smartphone business since their overseas markets' smartphones are dependent on Google Android services.
