Huawei smartphones will get Android Q


Huawei is currently going through the worst time since its establishment. But still, the company assures to update their latest smartphone portfolio to Android Q after it gets released in a couple of months. However, there is a catch as this update may not come with Google services which also include the Play Store.


Last month, Huawei was added to US Entity list which made US-based companies stop doing business with the Chinese telecom giant. Thus, Huawei lost its Android license from Google which was soon followed by other companies dropping their business with the firm. As a result of which, the sales of Huawei/Honor phones went down in global markets and competitors like Samsung took advantage of the situation with reasonable trade-in offers. Huawei started looking for alternatives including a new OS for their smartphones.

Rumours started pouring such as no more updates for existing Huawei smartphones which made Huawei UK address their customers regarding the future updates for their phones. In a statement, the company assures that all of its latest smartphones will be updated to Android Q. It even mentioned that it has begun testing for more than 17 devices and the Mate 20 Pro has already received approval for the update rollout.

On the other hand, it is not sure whether the Android Q update will arrive with Google services. Whatsoever, here is the complete list of Huawei smartphones that will get Android Q:

  • P30 Pro
  • P30
  • Mate 20
  • Mate 20 Pro
  • P30 lite
  • P smart 2019

Even though Huawei did not mention anything about the Android Q for Honor smartphones, they are also expected to get it, after all both have the same hardware and software.
