HUAWEI Continues as Member of the SD Association, Bluetooth & Wi-Fi Alliance

Google has returned the HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro to the Android Q Beta program. In addition, HUAWEI remains on the lists of SD Association, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi Alliance.

The membership of the SD Association was not been cancelled but changed temporarily in order to confirm its accordance with the US Trade Department. Following the negotiations with the company, the Association took the decision back, thus enabling HUAWEI to regain its own place on the SD Association list.

Despite the problems and a multiplicity of misinformation, HUAWEI has had to face recently, experts expect the situation to stabilize soon. They also claim that HUAWEI’s return to the list of Android Q Beta means that the phone will be able to download and update the Beta version of the new Android generation.
