Huawei will be allowed to work with US companies

In a report, US President Donald Trump said he’ll allow Huawei Technologies Co. to buy products from U.S. suppliers after trade renegotiation talks with China resumed.
“U.S. companies can sell their equipment to Huawei,” Trump said at a news conference following the G20 summit in Japan. “We’re talking about equipment where there’s no great national security problem with it.”

Trump said the both him and Chinese President Xi Jinping discussed Huawei as part of their talks.

“I said that’s O.K., that we will keep selling that product, these are American companies that make these products. That’s very complex, by the way,” Trump said. “I’ve agreed to allow them to continue to sell that product so that American companies will continue.”

The Trump administration has alleged that the Chines could be using Huawei hardware to potentially spy on countries that use their network infrastructure. Allegations which Huawei continues to deny.

The new move means that Huawei owners can be rest assured that their current and potentially future devices will now have future Android upgrades.
