Huawei was placed on the U.S. Commerce Department's Entity List in May, preventing the company from accessing its U.S. based supply chain. Sure, this was terrible news for the company since it is prevented from licensing the Google Play services version of Android from Google, chip designs from ARM Holdings and components from Qualcomm, Intel, and Micron. But the ban also hurts U.S. companies; in 2018 Huawei spent $11 billion for parts and software from the U.S.


Exactly one month ago today, U.S. President Donald Trump announced that he and Chinese President Xi Jinping had reached a truce temporarily preventing any escalation of the U.S.-China trade war. While Huawei was placed on the list for security purposes, the president himself said that the company could be used as a bargaining chip to extract better terms for any trade agreement between the two countries. And after the truce was announced, Trump said, "U.S. companies can sell their equipment to Huawei. We're talking about equipment where there's no great national security problem with it." While that sounded like good news for Huawei at the time, the truth is that nothing has changed over the last month. Huawei still can't access its U.S. supply chain and Google's cut ties with the Chinese manufacturer remain severed.
Huawei and Google were planning to sell their smart speaker in the U.S.

And today, The Information (via Android Police) revealed that the ban has cost the world another smart speaker. An anonymous source inside Huawei said that the company and Google had been working for a full year to develop this speaker which would have featured Google Assistant. Ironically, Huawei was going to sell the speaker in the United States even though the government won't let Huawei's phones be purchased through state-side carriers. But alas, the ban has put the kibosh on the project. While the world certainly doesn't need another smart speaker, it would have been interesting to see what the two tech giants might have come up.
