The Trump government reportedly green-lit certain US companies to supply good to Huawei.

This could mean Google could resume supplying its Core services to Huawei.

However, nothing has been officially confirmed by either Google or the U.S. Commerce Department.

Huawei, which has been banned from sourcing supplies from US firms, could resume business with its US counterparts, according to a report by New York Times. Huawei was placed under a blacklist by the US Commerce Department on the grounds of national security. Because of the ban, Huawei is prohibited from obtaining a license to add Google Play Services to its devices along with Google Core Apps like Search, Maps, Gmail and the likes which reduces the prospects of its products in the international market.

As a result, Huawei had to launch its flagship Mate 30 Series using the open source version of Android and Huawei’s own appstore called App Gallery.

Based on the new report, a meeting was held last week where U.S. President Donald Trump ordered officials to give a green light to a select few US companies to resume supplies to Huawei. The operative keyword is that the goods supplied have to be non-sensitive to national security.

Based on the report, a slew of other publications started conjecturing that this could mean Huawei could be getting its Android license back from Google, allowing the company to install Google Core Services and Play Services in Huawei and it’s sub-brand Honor’s devices.

However, nothing has been officially confirmed by either Google or the U.S. Commerce Department (which issues the license) which maintained that the present “status quo holds.”
