We all know that the US ban is causing a lot of troubles to HUAWEI. From Google services to the production of chipsets, the Chinese tech giant is determined to overcome them one by one. Earlier, it was reported that the company's self-made HarmonyOS will be featured on all their devices in the future. Now, it looks like they are slowly achieving the goal by announcing the first smartphone that comes with the system later this year.

For those who bought the previous HUAWEI smartphones that come with GMS (Google Mobile Services), this could be a problem that you might be worried about after the US ban happened. As the company no longer has access to American software and technology, current users are wondering if their HUAWEI devices (with GMS) still can get system updates or security patches. Now, it appears that the answer might be a 'yes' from a statement made by HUAWEI.

Nowadays, it looks like Huawei is becoming more self-reliant especially after the ban took place. Although the company has been restricted to access resources from the U.S. for their technology products, they are still constantly coming up with new ideas to wow the crowd. Recently, it is suggested that all of the Huawei products might ditch Android OS and replaced by the HarmonyOS in the future.

At the beginning of the year, we saw the news that OPPO will be manufacturing chipsets to be used on their own devices. The process of making a chipset takes a long time and great effort, so it might have to be a while before OPPO's chipset gets to meet the world. However, it is said that the company is now speeding up the process because of the US sanctions that happened between the US and Huawei.

The US sanctions on Huawei has been happening for quite a while and the situation is definitely not getting better anytime soon. Earlier, we have also seen the news that the President of United States Donald Trump has extended the ban until May 2021. Not only the company has lost access to Google services, there are also some other problems surfacing as well such as chip supply. It is said that HONOR (sub-brand from Huawei) is planning to turn to MediaTek for the supply of 5G SoCs in the future.
