Google Cuts Ties With Huawei

Chinese tech firm Huawei has been banned by Google from accessing some updates to Android, the most widely used mobile operating system in the world.

Business Insider reports Huawei is the second-biggest phone maker in the world behind Samsung, and the restriction is probably a death knell to its smartphone business outside China.

Unless Google changes its mind, Huawei will have to create its own Android fork without critical Google apps and services, or build a fully proprietary alternative.
