Recently, Weibo user @Mobile Chip Expert said that Honor has not yet obtained Google’s Android authorization, and plans to reduce its sales this year. Without Android services, it is basically impossible to play in overseas markets.
However, the acquisition of Google’s Android authorization here does not mean that the Honor mobile phone cannot use the Android system, and the second is that it cannot use services such as GMS.

It is reported that the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) is a complete solution for Android hardware and software developers. At present, most mobile phones of domestic manufacturers use deeply customized AOSP ROMs, and after Google certification, they become international legal Android compatible devices. Simply put, the Android trademark belongs to Google, and only certified models can use the word.
Previously, due to a US ban, Huawei and Honor parted ways. Now Huawei is about to launch Hongmeng OS, but the former sub-brand Honor is still facing these problems.
