Huawei is going through a nightmare right now with companies ranging from Google to Bluetooth SIG being forced to sever alliances with it. However, it what may come as good news to those who still plan on purchasing Huawei handset; Reuters is now reporting that all the bloatware apps from Facebook will no longer be pre-installed on Huawei handsets.

Consumers who plan on purchasing a Huawei device in the future can save close to 1GB of storage space as apps such as Facebook, Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp will no longer come pre-installed. While the Play Store ban applies to all future Huawei devices, the Facebook ban will apply to all devices that lie unshipped with Huawei. This will be quite an annoyance for Huawei as it forces them to unseal their unsold stock and remove these apps.

 

Huawei has gotten a reprieve as this National Emergency allows Huawei to offer security updates from Google till August 21, 2019. However, Google has been reportedly lobbying for an extension and possibly to be exempted from this ban for the security of Huawei smartphones.

While Huawei won’t be able to pre-install Facebook apps on their handsets, it doesn’t mean that consumers can’t log on to the Play Store and start downloading said apps. This essentially means that there’s really no downside here; just Facebook’s way of showing the US government that they are complying with the rules enforced.
