because the United States government placed them on a blacklist in which it forces companies in this country to break their business relationships with the Chinese company.
For this reason, Google, Qualcomm, Intel and other companies have announced their rupture of relations and even firms such as ARM, which is based in the United Kingdom, although it uses American technology, it will also have broken its relations with the Chinese manufacturer.

With this, Huawei runs out of software base, such as Android certified by Google, or the necessary ARM licenses to continue manufacturing its Kirin processors.
Thinking of buying a Huawei phone? Do not buy it…
Even Huawei could also be in trouble with the Bluetooth consortium, an American organization that also requires a certification to be implemented in a cell phone.
Without this, Huawei will have serious problems to develop software, hardware and multiple important technologies in their devices.
In the software, Huawei can opt for the Android version of open code (AOSP) that has the base of the platform, but that evolves slower, does not have as many novelties as the version that certifies Google, involves much more development and not It has Google Play or traditional services.
Huawei may choose to use its app store called AppGallery, but it does not compare with Google Play in any way because it lacks many apps.
Most likely, Huawei will use a more established Android app store or buy and integrate them into its store.
Another option will be to create your own operating system that is rumored to take time to do so (although this will be based on the open source Android that I mentioned and not entirely from Huawei), which will take a long time if it is entirely yours.
In hardware if you will have even more problems, because without the ARM license you will be forced to dig through an alternative to be able to develop a processor which takes the same amount of time.
Without Bluetooth, it will be strange to sell a cell phone but it could be something that not necessarily everyone uses, or at least is used less than a processor or an operating system.
The US government gave Huawei a second air by offering 90 days more in which companies can work with Huawei, but after this the available Android Android phones will no longer receive Android updates and security updates from Google, which could make these devices obsolete faster.
That said, the biggest question is in future products because although the company supposedly already has licenses for its next Kirin 985 processor, the company will not be licensed to place Android in a new product.
Given all this, I consider that at this time it is not worth buying a Huawei cell phone or at least it is not the best decision you can make. It is better to wait until these 90 days are fulfilled and wait a little longer to see what is the plan and situation of Huawei in relation to the United States government and its partners on which it depends significantly.
