Huawei Mate 20 Pro joined the Android Q beta program only about two weeks ago and amidst the ongoing trade war which forced Google to enforce an Android ban on the Chinese smartphone company, the US-based tech company has silently removed the Huawei last year’s flagship device from Android Q beta page.
Earlier this week, Google suspended Huawei’s Android license due to Trump’s administration’s new policy. The US government later delayed this move by 90 days but Huawei has not backed down into the corner and with the launch of Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro it has shown an unfazed front.

During the 90 days deadline which will end by 19th August 2019, Huawei can provide security updates for the existing Huawei and Honor smartphones but it won’t have any access to major OS updates. The removal of Huawei Mate 2 Pro from the Android Q beta program was not so shocking in light of the recent developments.
The Chinese company was previously planning to introduced EMUI 10 based on Android Q soon after the OS’ official launch later this year and Huawei Mate 20 Pro was supposed to take charge in testing out the new update. All is not lost at the moment as Huawei and Google are working together to find a way out of this mess as the latter will also be at a loss if the situation continues.
