Over the past few days, we’ve seen social media go crazy with the blacklisting of Chinese tech giant Huawei by the Trump administration, labelling them a security threat, is this because of the P30’s camera?

Huawei began to feel the effects of Trump’s order that bars American firms from selling components and software to the company, fuelling a cold war that has been going on between the two countries over technology and trade. 

In response to Trump’s order,  Google cut off support to Huawei for android hardware and software services, this means the Chinese tech company will not have access to future Android operating systems and popular Google applications (Google play store, Google mail, Google maps) native to all Android devices.

Wait, it gets worse! Chipmakers including Intel Corp, Qualcomm Inc, Xilinx Inc and Broadcom Inc have told their employees they will not supply critical software and components to Huawei until further notice and this looks like the end of an era in the United States for the Chinese company.

End of an era or not, the company still has a huge customer base in other parts of the world including Asia and Africa with their latest flagship, the P30, with its crazy camera features and sleek colourful design.
