It is not a possibility its reality. No future updates for these phones unless Trump reconsiders and that is not going to happen.
I'm 2 week with the P30 pro, while it's a good phone it's now going to be blocked from my work network as they say it will cause a security risk due to lack of security patches etc.
Where do we stand with this news? I've to revert to my OnePlus 6 from this week to continue accessing my work network. In other words, I've an expensive P30 Pro ornament.

No access to OS updates or security patches.
There will eventually be updates via AOSP, but these could be too late. Problem is rolling out any new fw to certified devices without going through Google results in broken SafetyNet, which means no Google Pay etc as the licence is invalid.

Thanks for the update, unfortunately for me it has had an impact. My place of work has stated that they will be blocking Huawei devices from accessing email, WiFi etc due to this news.
While I can still use it personally and apps etc will update, I will not be getting any security patches, OS updates as these are releases and signed by Google, so no longer available to Huawei.
My concern is that my new €800 phone is now possibly already outdated and my year old OnePlus 6 is actually a better option.
I understand that this is only breaking news and still a lot of uncertainty but I'm sure you can appreciate my/our concerns with the impact or potential impact to our new devices.

Spotted this on Engadget
Update 5/19 5:15PM ET: Engadget understands that the report is accurate, although there will be a slight reprieve. Updates for Play Services and apps will still go through, as they don't require that Google interacts with Huawei. OS and security updates, however, are strictly off-limits.
