After recent developments that led to Google suspending some of its business with Huawei, the Chinese company issued a short statement to address the concerns of its customers.
As reported by The Verge, the statement somewhat echoes Android’s response and reassures current users of Huawei, and and its subsidiary Honor, that their devices will continue to get security updates and after-sales service.

The statement reads:
“Huawei has made substantial contributions to the development and growth of Android around the world. As one of Android’s key global partners, we have worked closely with their open-source platform to develop an ecosystem that has benefitted both users and the industry.
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.
We will continue to build a safe and sustainable software ecosystem, in order to provide the best experience for all users globally.”
At least for now, Huawei and Honor users are assured of support. But if worse comes to worse, Huawei has a back up plan in the ready. According to reports, the company has developed an in-house operating system to replace Android in case something like this happens.
Hopefully, this issue will be resolved soon and the need to use such measure doesn’t come to pass.
