Honor has not yet received an Android license from Google



Honor has already begun to make transparent hints that the brand’s smartphones will soon acquire the right to install Google services and applications (GMS, Google Mobile Services). However, as Chinese sources now report, Honor has not yet received the corresponding Android license from Google.

Honor’s first flagship without Huawei – Honor V40

It is also noted that for this reason, Honor is forced to lower its forecasts for smartphone sales for 2021, since without a Google license, it will not be able to provide large volumes outside of China.

Honor has already succeeded in rebuilding relationships with many partners including AMD, Qualcomm, Samsung, Microsoft, Intel and MediaTek. However, she has yet to agree on Google.

The Android trademark is owned by Google and only certified models can use it. Google has the right to set its own requirements for smartphone manufacturers if they go to use official Android with Google services and applications.

Many Chinese manufacturers dispense with GMS by using highly adapted open source AOSP (Android Open Source Project) based firmware. When Huawei came under US sanctions, it also had to abandon Google’s services and applications, offering its own branded counterparts.

In an attempt to get Honor out of harm’s way, the brand was spun off into an independent company. However, the problem with Google services is still relevant to Honor smartphones. The first new Honor smartphone with pre-installed GMS is expected to be the Honor 50, which is still pending debut.
