After Russia's attack on Ukraine, companies around the world continue to boycott Russia.
According to BQ CEO Vladimi Puzanov; Google has revoked BQ's Android certificate! Stating that the devices licensed so far will continue to work, the CEO said that they are already working for phones with HarmonyOS and that they will release these models in the second half of 2022.
A license called "Google Mobile Services", that is, GMS, is needed for Android phones to work. Cancellation of this license means that Android cannot work on phones. This incident also happened to the Huawei brand in 2019, and the company eventually had to downsize in the mobile market. After selling its sub-brand Honor, it continues with the P50 series today.
This may be the only exit door for BQ Mobile, which has already started working with HarmonyOS.
What do you think about this subject? Do you think HarmonyOS can be the salvation of BQ Mobile?
