Google announced the Android Q beta release during I/O 2019 conference early this month. This year, 21 devices were included, which comprised of the usual suspects, a surprise entrant from TECNO mobile and of course the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.
Well things have gone south the past week thanks to Google initially banning Huawei from accessing its Google Services products like Gmail and Google Play. However things turned for the better when Huawei got a 90 day reprieve where they got back their Android Licence.
Well, it is not over yet as Huawei Mate 20 Pro has been removed from the list of devices that one can try out Android Q beta, which is only two weeks since the announcement.
This move is probably due to the fact that Huawei’s Android licence was suspended by Google which meant they were not to get further updates and support by the company. Although the move was delayed by 90 days as previously mentioned, this still meant little for Huawei’s long time plans.
The Mate 20 Pro was the only Huawei phone on the list that was given the chance to test the next version of Android. However, Huawei had earlier mentioned that they would update 8 of their smartphones when Android Q is officially released so that means that is not happening for now.
This has been one hell of a month for Huawei as the continued trade war between the United States and China persists and we’ll have to see what will transpire when that 90 day expires eventually and what means for Huawei mobile.
