Huawei continue devices future

Current and future tips for Huawei Users

The news are shocking for a lot of budget smartphone owners: Google will discontinue trade deals with Huawei, a result of the escalating trade spat between China and the USA. While this sounds kind of political there are actual real-life consequences for everyone who has a gadget of said brand at home: There will be no further updates for Huawei devices such as smartphones and tablets. This will have a serious impact on the user experience and the security of users’ data.


Upcoming Huawei devices without Google access?
Google has confirmed that currently available Huawei devices can still be used and that services such as the Google Play Store, Google Search, Gmail, Google Maps, and the Chrome browser will continue to work. But, there may also be limitations on devices released in the future.


“It is important to keep a device updated with the most recent operating system and patches as these updates are often designed to close new loopholes hackers have managed to exploit such as bugs, vulnerabilities, and zero-days. It’s much more than just giving you the latest graphics or a few more emojis, the real value of these updates is in their potential to protect your device more effectively,” said Director Protection Labs & QA, Alexander Vukcevic.

No PlayStore = security risk
“In the medium term, when and if users can’t access the Google Play store, they will try to download their most used apps from other sources. This will open up new possibilities for hackers. We are expecting an increase in fake apps that will lead to more serious security threats for Huawei users,” he added.

In addition to this, apps downloaded by the Google Play store have been checked by Google for potentially malicious content or abuse of user’s data. “While some bad stuff has gotten through, the Google Play store is much, much cleaner than off-market sources,” he explained.
