Huawei is still able to sell products made before the ban, which allows it to preload those phones with the Google apps you'd expect to find on a new Android phone. Even though it looks like the U.S. and China are coming to terms with each other and Huawei's ban might be lifted soon, the manufacturer has told Austrian newspaper Der Standard that it still won't return to Google's services. The company indicated that it is investing around $3 Billion in 2020 alone, for developing Huawei Mobile Services (HMS). Roland Quandt, who broke the story with the help of Andreas Proschofsky, tweeted in English saying "Huawei just said they will never go back to using official Android with Google services on their devices". The lack of the services mean that its smartphones do not have apps such as YouTube and Gmail.

It even launched a TV that runs on the Harmony OS but it was launched under its other sub brand, Honor. The Google Play Store hasn't been available in China since 2010, and Chinese app developers have made their own hugely popular apps like social media platform Weibo, ecommerce app TaoBao, and the "Netflix of China", IQIYI. Even the company bragged about how powerful its own Operating system, Harmony OS is. The shift has actually been much from smooth as Huawei was apparently left without a secure application ecological community over night however it appears the business isn't searching in the rearview mirror.
