Honor Resume Cooperation with Google
After independence, Honor, began to resume cooperation with major suppliers, including Qualcomm, MediaTek, and other major chip suppliers. But for the phone to be listed and sold in other parts of the world, it has to integrate GMS (Google Mobile Services), a suite necessary to use native Android core applications such as the Play Store.
It is worth mentioning that Honor announced earlier this year that it was negotiating with Google and hoped to resume the partnership with Google. And with Honor’s independence, a few months ago there was news that Honor had been undergoing Google’s security review and compatibility testing.
Recently, Honor announced on its official Twitter account that Honor confirmed that it has resumed cooperation with Google and that the Honor 50 series of overseas models will also be pre-installed with Google Mobile Services (GMS).
Google Mobile Services (GMS) is the main difference between AOSP and Android when a model runs an Android-compatible system and obtains Google authorization to use GMS (mainly including Google Map, GMAIL, YouTube, Chrome, Google Play, etc.) services, which is important for the Android ecology.
Previously, Honor CEO Zhao Ming said in a media interview that Honor is now back in operation in more than 50 countries around the world, and more products will be listed in the future, and the phones and tablets will also support Google’s GMS services.
