So most of the users nowadays wondering, what will happen to them, will Honor Phones continue to get the software updates for their phones or they’ll just have to stop using them?

Back in 2020 November, Huawei sold Honor, its budget smartphone brand to a consortium of buyers in China, as a way to help the unit survive the US ban.

In 2019, Huawei was put on a U.S blacklist called the Entity List which restricted American companies from selling components like semiconductors and software to Huawei.

after splitting, Honor got access to Google Mobile Services as well as other American components such as semiconductors and software for the newly launching Honor smartphones.

Huawei and Honor Finland executives have confirmed to SuomiMobiili.fi (via GSMArena) that Huawei will support all Honor phones released before April 1 this year, providing firmware updates. This means that the Honor 50 series launched earlier this month & which is also made record of selling More than 5.5 billion phones sold in 1 minute in the first sale will be supported by Huawei, and all the other devices released earlier April 1, 2021, will be supported by Huawei.
