Huawei, the biggest smartphone company affected by the trade war between the United States and China, suffered a loss of Google services.
Huawei is working on its operating system and services, but the company suffered a drop in sales of phones in the last quarter of last year as a result of depriving Google of apps.
But the company said in its new statement that it still wants to use Google services in its phones.
The statement surfaced when Huawei's country manager Fei Wang Fred in an interview said that the company would not go back to Google services even after US sanctions were lifted.
He said that Huawei no longer wants to rely on US politics, which could cause problems for the company in the future.
But shortly after this statement, Huawei also issued a defining statement.
According to technology site The Verge, "Open Android ecosystems, including Google Mobile Services, are still our priority, but if we cannot use them we have the ability to build our ecosystem."
Huawei can still use the Android operating system because it is open source but cannot add Google services to its phones.
Google services will not be available in last year's flagship Phone Mate 30 Pro and P40 series phones or other devices to be introduced next month, and Huawei is working on developing its mobile services in this regard.
However, even after Huawei has developed these services and apps, it remains to be seen how much consumers in other countries outside of China like the phones of the company accustomed to YouTube, Gmail and other Google services.
According to a Bloomberg report, Huawei is working increasingly to explore alternatives to Google Apps as the P40 series is due to be released in March.
Huawei is hosting events for developers in various cities around the world, where the company is promising cash rewards for building apps.
Huawei is investing $ 1.5 billion to develop apps.
It may be recalled that in May 2019, the United States barred Huawei from trading with US companies, and a special government license was imposed on US companies for the delivery of parts to Huawei.
Huawei was blacklisted by the Trump administration as a threat to US national security and said its devices could be used for espionage, a charge the Chinese company has always denied.
