As we all may know, Huawei is a Chinese enterprise who raised billions and billions of dollars annually thanks to their hardware, distributed around the world. It’s the company which has grown up more than any other when we talk about “selling smartphones”, leading the 3th rank against Samsung -1st- and Apple -2nd-.

Last year, Huawei sold more than 49% of its smartphones outside China. That means a huge impact on user experience around the world. The negative position in which it’s located momentarily, will be difficult to face.

Huawei’s plans almost became real: conquering the market, leading the first place against Apple and its main competitor, Samsung. Now, that dream for the Chinese enterprise is so far away that they cannot imagine it.

Google’s decision instantly killed Huawei’s ambition to overtake Samsung in the global market and another concern was raised:

What are they going to do right now? I am talking about their users.

Millions of users are worried about this. Android won’t be Huawei’s OS anymore, so what is going to happen next? A Chinese OS? Will they continue with the free and open source version of Android until they formulate another plan to change their current path? They can’t even take a look at the US market anymore. A big deal to be solved (if they can).

No more Huawei’s phones in the US are going to be sold because of legal commitments with the state. Data leaks, the main issue that every single tech savvy company has in this XXI century.

At this moment, many people are trying to look for more information about this subject. Imagine that you are a Samsung’s loyal user, you have a S7 (an “old” phone) and one day you wake up with the news that your phone’s OS is going to be legally banned by the government. What will you do? Will you ever buy another Samsung? Will you change brands? I believe that.

Many questions are being asked in these culminating moments for the mobile telephony industry. One thing has been clearly proven: the user experience for Huawei is not going to be the same as yesterday and this will impact on the company with low revenues at the end of the year.
