HONOR greatly affected during HUAWEI ban

HONOR V40 could be the first to resume Google Mobile Services after HUAWEI ban 12When HUAWEI was banned by the U.S. government back in May 2019, both HUAWEI and HONOR were affected as they could not do business with U.S. companies. In Malaysia, the HONOR 9X Pro was the first HONOR phone to use HUAWEI Mobile Services instead of GMS. 

HUAWEI finally sold off HONOR in 2020 so it can continue using GMS

However, HUAWEI announced in November 2020 that the company will be selling off its HONOR business, allowing HONOR to finally run with GMS again. HONOR was already producing the V40 during the business sale, but it’s possible that the company managed to get the license right before the launch which is why it was delayed.
