Honor, the newly independent company in China, is currently streamlining its business and forming new relationships with partners and suppliers. While it is making deals with component suppliers, the company is also working on getting the support of Google.
As per the latest report coming from Russia, Google Mobile Services (GMS) could soon make a comeback on Honor devices. This is primarily because the company is no longer a part of Huawei and thus, sanctions imposed by the United States on the Chinese giant no longer apply to Honor.
It further mentions that the return of Google services of Honor smartphones could happen around Spring. The company is already working on two new phone lineups that will have support for Google Mobile Services. This should bring back official Android support as well as a host of other Google applications.
With the introduction of Google services on Honor smartphones, new devices getting launched by the company will no longer have Huawei AppGallery pre-installed. However, the older devices will continue to have AppGallery
For those who are unaware, in May 2019, US President Donald Trump signed an executive order banning Huawei from dealing with American companies, cutting off access to Google’s services as well as many others. Since Honor was a sub-brand of Huawei, its devices were also not able to use GMS. To make sure that the brand survives, Huawei sold off Honor in November last year
Apart from establishing relations with suppliers, the company is also working on establishing its presence in the market. The company has started its own online store named Honor Mall and is planning to launch several offline stores.
