Google puts a ban on Huawei

One of the most distinctive and biggest stories of 2019 is US adding Huawei to entity list. Back on May 2019, Huawei was blacklisted by order of the U.S. Executive Department of Commerce.

This was because Google has determined that Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro models had backdoor access to Google services because of user interface (UI) security vulnerabilities.
Such a decision had many consequences for one of the largest smartphones manufacturer. The worst part was that Huawei could not use Google apps or services on newly released mobile devices. Consumers were strongly affected by the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro, as both models operated without Google services and applications.

Development of digital photography and night mode improvement

Development of mobile photography quickly led manufacturers to face an obstacle that is challenging for all cameras in barely lit environments or in the dark. For smartphone manufacturing giants this was a new way to compete and finding a solution that improves picture quality taking photo in these conditions meant to have a new opportunity to attract more users. Huawei and Google took their first attempts to render quality photos.

2017: Google acquires HTC’s smartphone engineering division

From the date of Motorola’s acquisition (May 2012 to January 2014), Google didn’t had a technical production department to produce its own custom phones, so it was forced to work with third-party mobile device manufacturers to design and produce the declared “original” smartphones. Some popular android news websites made headlines that if Google wants to fully control their devices and push Android to the right direction, it should go back to the technical part production.

Google introduces first “Pixel” series smartphone

After years of releasing Nexus phones in different quality and class, in fall of 2016 Google finally revieled its first and true branded phones. Initial rumors were pointing HTC as a longtime Google phone manufacturer, but later turned out it was Huawei that refused to manufacture smartphone for Google and basically decided not to work on any project that doesn’t have their branding. At the time, Huawei was working hard to enter the U.S. market, so their non-branded device was uninteresting to them.

Google Photos debut

2015 started with Google Photos debut. Application was introduced as a separate tool from all the bundled Android and iOS apps. Google Photos release meant that users no longer needed to have Google+ account to use a convenient automatic photo and video backup service including smart photo sorting with search feature. It also brought media management into new era where all photos taken on multiple devices were stored and accessed from one place using cloud servers.

Such notice was published in August 2011, whose prospect was quite simple: Despite Google already working with third-party manufacturers on Nexus, company wanted to become a solid player in smartphones business. The idea was to run Motorola as a separate business entirely from the Android project in purpose to compete with Samsung and HTC – two most powerful manufacturers of Android powered phones at the time.,

After seeing Apple’s success with the iPAD tablet in 2011, Google needed to get on the same train and they had to act quickly, as other manufacturers were preparing to launch their own tablets without a clear OS model.

And so it happened…
At the end of January, Google introduced new interface which included tablet support in Android 3.0 called “Honeycomb”. Users were able to have a landscape mode, discover new notifications and updated display settings. But most importantly, “Honeycomb” rolled out with enough space and freedom for application developers to customize OS bringing their own features into it. The updated Android design with variety of new themes quickly caught smartphones users attention.

10 years of technological development is a really big period, with a lot of innovations that are practically impossible to see in great detail, so I will not try to do that. But going through the major Google products and services that have changed our daily lives is really worth it.

One of the main huge inventions that forever highly improved whole gameplay was Android operating system release and everything that went along with it. As well as its integration and bunch of applications across platforms that changed the way we use our smartphones till this day.
