While the U.S. government has provided a way for Huawei to continue operating for a few more months, the head of state, Donald Trump leans on not giving them the reprieve. The President of the United States is yet to give the decision. This reprieve could make or break Huawei’s grip on the US market.

Trump has officially expressed that he doesn’t want to work with Huawei anymore this past weekend. Trump considers Huawei to be a national security threat with their devices. This reason was one of the major points why the US government banned Huawei from doing business with US-based companies,  like Google.

Huawei previously got a 90-day reprieve last May which is about to expire this August 19. This allows Huawei to continue operations and work with other US companies until the reprieve ends. After that,  US companies who still want to work Huawei  would to have process a permit to do so.

Unless Trump changes his mind to a decision that favors Huawei working in the US, the company is still in danger of fully losing its US audience. Cutting off Huawei means that their devices won’t receive any new updates anymore and new Huawei devices cannot come over to the US anymore.

If Huawei is granted the reprieve, consumers might still be able to purchase the foldable Huawei Mate X which is about to be released this September. Huawei and Samsung would be the first two of the big smartphone companies to release this new type of smart device.

Fortunately, Huawei has been preparing the Harmony OS which is planned to be used for the company’s future devices. The company confirmed that it still prefers to use the Android OS from Google but now they’re prepared to make the switch once the ban takes its full effect. As of now, Huawei’s first  device with the Harmony OS is a Smart TV and no devices that follow this are confirmed so far.

Either way, Huawei seems to have choices regardless if the talks for the US-China trade war go well for or go against them.
