The last few months have been vital for Huawei e Honor and have traced the path that the two companies will follow, now consolidated companies in the tech world. The Chinese giant has officially sold its sub-brand and the consequences of this action begin to be felt: the company has confirmed the release for the Skills Google aboard future Honor smartphones. We start with the latest top series, fresh from launch in China but also coming to our latitudes.
13 / 08 Update: let's talk about Honor and the return of Google services, this time on the occasion of the launch of the Magic 3 series. Find all the details and news directly at the end of the article.
Without the "weight" of Huawei, Google services could return to Honor smartphones
Huawei and the US ban: let's take stock of the situation
Let's start from the starting point of the whole question, namely the ban of Huawei. It is useless to dwell on it given the disproportionate number of words written down, but it is good to make a quick recap. Here you find our editorial, useful for understanding the initial dynamics relating to the contrasts between the Chinese house and the US government. As for the more recent events, despite the entry of President Biden on the scene, things have not changed. There continue to be limitations, problems for the investments and the name of the Chinese giant continues to appear on the Black List.
Since the happy ending seems unlikely, the time has come to bet everything: the gigantic investments of Huawei For their own Mobile Services ed AppGallery led to the global release of HarmonyOS 2.0, a novelty that could prove to be one of the biggest upheavals in the mobile sector in recent years. Now the Chinese house has announced tablets e SmartWatch moved by the new OS it is only a matter of time before putting your hand to a smartphone with the native system.
In short, it is clear that a back to status quo is to be excluded: Huawei will continue to focus on its services (perhaps without disdaining those of Google, in case of a future rapprochement) and total independence.
What does the Honor sale mean?
The concept of independence it is essential to understand the reasons for the Honor sale. Being independent from US companies costs and obviously selling the sub-brand (let's remember once again: one of the most flourishing in the mobile landscape) has certainly generated a capital not to be poco. The figure is not known, but there are rumors of around 12 billion euros.
But obviously in addition to Huawei's independence (and the need to generate money) it is likely that the decision was also made with Honor in mind. The former sub-brand, in fact, received the same treatment as the parent company: it was never mentioned by the Entity List of the U.S. Department of Commerce, but obviously its relationship with Huawei has closed many doors. Honor also had to give up Google services on the latest models but now things could change thanks to the sale to the company Shenzen Zhixin New Information Technology (a consortium of over 30 members).
Honor's situation after the sale
After the sale of Honor there was no impact on production and all 7.000 employees have been maintained: in short, the brand has continued to move as it has always done. Social accounts haven't changed and the Magic UI continued to move forward. The same is also true for i after-sales services models on the market and previous ones.
Honor has continued to produce accessories and smartphones but many have wondered (over the months) about the possibility of a return of Google services.
