Google just removed the Huawei P30 Pro & Mate X from Android's website
by Joshua Swingle / May 24, 2019, 4:44 AM
Prior to Huawei’s US ban, the company’s smartphones were listed along just a handful of others in two important sections. Specifically, the Huawei Mate X sat alongside the Galaxy S10 5G, LG V50 ThinQ 5G, and Xiaomi Mi Mix 5G in a section titled “Latest & Greatest.”
Huawei’s foldable smartphone was initially set to be released in June, but it’s unclear at the moment how the company’s inability to work with Google will affect the launch. After all, like the recently-announced Honor 20 Pro, the flagship probably didn’t make it through Google’s certification process.
Further down the page, in a separate category called “Popular Picks,” Google highlights some of the “cameras that catch the shot” on Android in each pricing segment. Currently, the list includes the Pixel 3, the Moto G7, and last year’s OnePlus 6T, but prior to the ban Huawei’s P30 Pro was also present.
Huawei also isn’t included on the list of “Featured Brands,” although it’s currently unclear if the company was highlighted in this category prior to the ban. In any case, the list now contains Samsung, LG, Motorola, Google, Nokia, and Xiaomi.
- Display 8.0" 2200 x 2480 pixels
- Camera 40 MP
- Processor HiSilicon Kirin 980, Octa-core, 2600 MHz
- Storage 512 GB + Nano Memory (NM)
- Battery 4500 mAh

Even if they did have their own OS it wouldn't matter cause they will still have to find a way to get a processor chip and ARMs is the only mobile chip maker.

You do realise that Google has nothing to do with it, right? They just abide to the law. It's not like they love to see proliferation in Android ecosystem going down the drain. They are forced to do so.

This is pure protectionism by the US! I hope all the different manufacturers will now realise that it is also dangerous for them to rely on us software and that they will therefore develop something new to replace android!

It's not going to be easy to just make a new os and app store, both android and ios have been around for 10 years, optimized and improved throughout those years. I highly doubt a company can make something that will pass it in 1 year.
