Huawei: Trump Government grants special licenses to some US companies

It has been several months since Huawei has to deal with the US embargo to develop its new smartphones, but according to the Wall Street Journal, things could evolve quickly. The White House is said to have granted special licenses for US companies to trade with the Chinese telecommunications group. Should we see a sign of opening a few days before a major meeting between US officials and Chinese or a simple economic maneuver not to impact US companies, it is difficult to say.

In addition, the Wall Street Journal says it does not have details of the companies involved in these new licenses. An agreement with Google would be a huge step forward, but right now there is no reason to say it's on the agenda. Huawei is still blocked and can not integrate the Play Store and many proprietary applications of Google into its new smartphones.

In countries like France, Spain or Germany where Google is a must, launching a smartphone without the Play Store would not really make sense. Huawei must therefore be content with its domestic market. An announcement is however scheduled on October 17th, a new range for the European market could be launched, and this despite the American sanctions.
