Huawei has been in the limelight for quite some time now thanks to the trade war between China and the US with Huawei finding a place on the US trade blacklist, thus causing the company to make some hard decisions. The Chinese tech company is working on collaborations with Russia now while dealing with the loss of Google’s Android. Nonetheless, the company has announced that it will be updating, over a dozen of its famous devices, with Android Q once it is available.
The announcement has been made despite the looming enforcement of the US trade blacklisting of Huawei. Huawei issued a statement where it has announced that it will be updating a lot of its popular handsets including the Mate 20, and the P30 to the Google’s long-awaited Android OS, Android Q.
The company said, ‘At Huawei, we always put our consumers first, regardless of the challenges we face. All Huawei smartphones and tablets will continue to receive security patches and Android updates. Anyone who has already bought, or is about to buy a Huawei smartphone, can continue to access the world of apps as they have always done. Our most popular current devices, including the P30 series, will be able to access Android Q. In fact, we have already launched a beta developer programme for Android Q which is running right now on our Mate 20 Pro device.’
Android Q is currently being tested on a minimum of seventeen of Huawei devices according to reports. There are also reports that the list will grow in the coming days and weeks. The devices include the P30 series, the P20 series, the Mate 20 and Mate 20 X series, the Mate 10 series, P Smart Z, and P smart 2019 series. There are also reports that suggest that Honor 20 series will also make it to the list of Huawei devices that will be receiving the Android Q update.
