Huawei commits to bringing Android Q and security patches to 17 smartphones despite US ban

It’s been around a month since Huawei’s troubles with the US government came to a head with the company being placed on the “entity” list that effectively blocks it from dealing with American companies. While a reprieve until August 19th has been awarded, consumer confidence in Huawei is beginning to decline, which has resulted in the Chinese electronics giant offering a 2-year money-back guarantee on support for popular apps in the Philippines. Now, Huawei has announced that it is committed to updating 17 of its “popular current devices” to Android Q.

The promise was communicated via Huawei Mobile UK’s official Twitter account, and states that the company will “always put our consumers first, regardless of the challenges we face.” Huawei hasn’t specified when the Android Q update will begin rolling out; the blacklisting reprieve is currently scheduled to end on August 19th, which could give Huawei enough time to get the updates certified beforehand, considering that the official Android Q release is likely to be towards the end of August.

Huawei has committed to providing the Android Q update to the following handsets:

Despite there being no Honor handsets listed above, the Honor 20 series of smartphones (Honor 20/20 Pro) is also scheduled to get updated to Android Q. Huawei has also promised that it will continue to provide security updates to its smartphones and tablets.

He’s been an Android fan ever since owning an HTC Hero, with the Dell Streak being his first phablet. He currently carries a Pixel 2 XL, Huawei P20 Pro, and a Huawei MediaPad M5 (8.4) in his pockets and thinks nothing of lugging a 17-inch laptop around in his backpack.
