unfolded.
For a more detailed historical look at how Huawei has reached this point, check out our full

executive order, thereby blacklisting the company as far as U.S. corporations are concerned.

and growth of Android around the world. As one of Android’s key global partners, we have
worked closely with their open-source platform to develop an ecosystem that has benefitted
both users and the industry. [We] will continue to provide security updates and after-sales

temporary license that will allow Huawei to maintain its current products (for existing
customers). The license expires August 19, which will essentially bring the full weight of the
ban to bear.

Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei has strong words for Trump’s ban, according to Global Times.
“The company is able to continue providing products and services, and the U.S. sanctions will
not hurt our core business. In such a critical moment, I’m grateful to U.S. companies, as
they’ve contributed a lot to Huawei’s development and showed their conscientiousness on
the matter. As far as I know, U.S. companies have been making efforts to persuade the U.S.

Plan B (https://www.androidauthority.com/huawei-apps-operating-system-988800/) have
leaked. Beijing-based Caijing says Huawei has an OS in the works that could replace the
Android OS on its phones while still running Android apps.
Wednesday, May 22:
Arm suspends business dealings (https://www.androidauthority.com/arm-huawei-businesssuspended-989083/) with Huawei: British chip designer Arm told its employees to halt
conducting business with Huawei. “Arm is complying with all of the latest regulations set forth
by the U.S. government,” said Arm in a statement. Huawei later acknowledged the action.
“We value our close relationships with our partners, but recognize the pressure some of them
are under, as a result of politically motivated decisions. We are confident this regrettable
situation can be resolved and our priority remains to continue to deliver world-class
technology and products to our customers around the world.”
Thursday, May 23:
TSMC says it can still do business with Huawei (https://www.androidauthority.com/tsmchuawei-ban-989690/): A spokesperson for Taiwan’s TSMC reportedly said its shipments to
Huawei won’t be affected by the current U.S. restrictions. The chip manufacturer is
responsible for producing Huawei’s Kirin smartphone chipsets, while processors from Apple,
MediaTek, and Qualcomm are also churned out by the firm. The company’s continued
cooperation means Huawei won’t need to search for another manufacturer to produce its
Kirin processors.
Trump open to dealing with “very dangerous” Huawei
(https://www.androidauthority.com/huawei-trump-trade-deal-dangerous-990118/): President
Trump has called Huawei “very dangerous,” but said the U.S. is open to including the

Huawei barred from SD card organization (https://www.androidauthority.com/huawei-sdassociation-microsd-989998/): As first spotted by SumahoInfo (https://sumahoinfo.com/post-
32481), the SD Association currently has Huawei de-listed on its website
(https://www.sdcard.org/about_sda/member_companies/index.html). In a statement sent
to Android Authority, the SD Association confirmed that it is complying with the U.S.
government order and barring Huawei from the association. This will not affect current
Huawei smartphones, but could cause major issues for future devices.
Huawei pushed out of Wi-Fi Alliance (https://www.androidauthority.com/huawei-wi-fibluetooth-990610/): Similarly to the barring of Huawei from the SD Association above, the WiFi Alliance also temporarily revoked Huawei’s membership to its own organization. The
Alliance had this to say in a statement to Android Authority: “Wi-Fi Alliance is fully complying
with the recent U.S. Department of Commerce order without revoking Huawei Technologies
membership. Wi-Fi Alliance has temporarily restricted Huawei Technologies participation in
Wi-Fi Alliance activities covered by the order.”
Monday, May 27:
Huawei claims it wouldn’t support bans of American companies
(https://www.androidauthority.com/huawei-founder-protest-apple-990932/): Huawei founder
Ren Zhengfei told Bloomberg (https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-0526/billionaire-huawei-founder-defiant-in-face-of-existential-threat) that he would protest a
Chinese ban against Apple, calling the Cupertino company his “teacher.” In regards to a
Chinese ban on American companies, he said, “That will not happen, first of all. And second
of all, if that happens, I’ll be the first to protest. Apple is my teacher, it’s in the lead. As a
student, why go against my teacher? Never.” So it seems that Apple, at least, is safe.
Tuesday, May 28:
Huawei sues, says the ban is unconstitutional: Huawei filed a legal motion (https://cdn.voxcdn.com/uploads/chorus_asset/file/16305867/huawei_motion.pdf) claiming the ban on the
company working with other U.S.-based companies violates the U.S. Constitution. In its

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) will continue to make chips for
Huawei, the company confirmed. This goes in opposition to other global manufacturers
complying with the U.S. ban (TSMC is not obliged to commit to the ban). Although TSMC will
continue its relationship with Huawei until at least the end of the year, the other bans might
still have a negative effect on TSMC’s business.
Huawei’s replacement OS will not arrive in June (https://www.androidauthority.com/huaweios-june-991546/): A rumor started to spread online that Huawei OS — the replacement for
Android on future Huawei smartphones — will land in June 2019. The source of this rumor
was actually a Huawei employee. However, Huawei quickly shot down the rumor as just that,
stating that any announcements regarding Huawei’s Android replacement will come through
proper channels.
Wednesday, May 29:
Huawei rejoins three consortiums: Only a few days after getting pushed out of three
consortiums, Huawei is now suddenly a member of all of them again. Huawei was relisted as
a member in the Wi-Fi Alliance (https://www.androidauthority.com/huawei-wi-fi-bluetooth990610/), the SD Association (https://www.androidauthority.com/huawei-sd-association991853/), and JEDEC. This is some much-needed good news for the company, although it’s
not quite clear what this means for the ban overall.
Science publishing group IEEE boots Huawei employees as reviewers: The Institute of
Electrical and Electronics Engineers (or IEEE) is in charge of publishing scientific journals.
However, due to the Huawei ban, the U.S.-based organization can no longer allow Huawei
employees to peer review those journals. This information leaked via an economics professor
on Twitter (https://twitter.com/qian_junhui/status/1133595554905124869).

It’s not clear if this means HongMeng will be the name for its Android-replacement OS across

HongMeng globally just so other brands don’t use it, but Oak OS will be the global name.
