The BBC reported earlier on Wednesday that ARM, which is owned by Japan's Softbank, had instructed employees to halt "all active contracts, support entitlements, and any pending engagements" with Huawei after the United States added Huawei to a list of companies with which USA firms could not do business.

Britain's biggest technology firm Arm Holdings appears to be cutting ties because of United States president Donald Trump's curbs on American firms doing business with the Chinese telecoms company.

Question: Can Huawei smartphones still receive Google security patches? Well, first of all, these apps are not covered by the open source licence and as the apps get updated, they will require you to run the latest version of Android in order to work.

Speaking with TechRadar, UK trade-in site Music Magpie reported that it saw a massive increase in trade-ins for Huawei smartphones.

There is, of course, the possibility of sideloading Android apps into your Huawei device.

Question: Will people still be able to update their Google apps?

Can an alternative OS salvage Huawei's smartphone business?

Huawei phones are known for their advanced cameras, stylish design, powerful processor and bigger battery.

Google said it would continue to support existing Huawei smartphones but future devices wouldn't have the company's apps and services, such as maps, Gmail, YouTube, and Chrome.

Huawei has addressed the uncertainty and answered some of the questions emerging in the minds of users following Google's restriction. Huawei's brand reputation has already been tainted. To that end, the company had announced that it's working on its own operating system, which, reports suggest is going to be named HongMeng.

The ban would also fall heavily on Huawei's MateBook line of laptops, which use US-made chips and Microsoft's Windows. He stressed that Huawei can operate with or without American semiconductors.

Samsung is the largest smartphone maker in the world with over 22 percent of the market share, but Huawei has been steadily increasing over the last 18 months, even surpassing Apple and its iPhones.

According to the Washington Post, the move is likely due to U.S. concerns about having its western allies' sensitive information vulnerable to supposed Chinese infiltration. The company has a close relationship with the Chinese government, prompting concerns about spying.

"The problem is that even if all of this was fixed overnight, and the USA administration said, 'Terrible mistake, it's all fine, silly us, ' the uncertainty that it's created is Huawei's biggest enemy now", he said.

"If we buy something that is useless, how are we going to sell it?", Dylan On, a salesman at Singapore retail and fix shop Wanying Pte Ltd., told a Reuters reporter.

What is on stake for telecommunication future?

Similarly, the company reportedly started its in-house software development efforts back in 2012, when the US government had a tiff with the fellow Chinese company ZTE.

Analysts say it is unlikely any others will face the sort of blacklisting Huawei has endured. "They have to obey the law - as required in the Entity List - because the U.S.is a country ruled by law", said Ren, adding that USA politicians should take the blame.

Huawei's founder and chief executive, Ren Zhengfei, had said Saturday, before Google's announcement, that growth of the Chinese tech giant "may slow, but only slightly" as a result of recent USA actions, Reuters reported. It also faces the problem of no Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, or Messenger, among others, all of which are key features for consumers, especially those based in Europe, one of Huawei's most important markets.

Huawei has flatly denied the U.S charges.

Meanwhile, President Trump has so far failed to convince America's European allies to take similar steps against the Chinese company. "It is an attack on the liberal, rules-based order", said Liu.

Last week, the U.S. Department of Commerce placed Huawei on its so-called "Entity List", restricting U.S. firms from selling Huawei technology without government approval.
