Chinese phone manufacturer Huawei may not be able to market the new Mate 30 with Google's Android mobile operating system, reports news agency Reuters Wednesday.
A Google spokesman says Reuters Mate 30 cannot be sold with Google apps and services due to US regulations.
The best people from Huawei want to release the new phone even if they don't use Google's software. "We will continue to use Android and its associated ecosystem as long as the US government allows," a Huawei spokesman said. "If not, we will continue to develop our own operating system."
Huawei allegedly introduced the newest device in Munich on September 18th, but it is unclear when the phone will be available. Mate 30 is the first device Huawei has wanted to release since the US put the company on a sanction list.
Due to the placement on this list, American companies are no longer allowed to do business with Huawei. However, a temporary license has been extended, so the ban will come into effect later. The delay does not apply to new Huawei products.
The United States has long said the company has jeopardized American security. According to the US government, Huawei's products could be used to spy on the Chinese government, but the evidence was never disclosed to the public. The group denied the allegations.
