The Chinese Tech Giant, Huawei has been banned by Google due to the US-Chinese business disputes. To keep the user-base alive, Huawei has started implementing new techniques. The company has already replaced the Mobile Operating System of Google and now, they are planning to replace Google Maps with the new Maps.
To make this happen, Huawei has partnered with TomTom. The company will provide the navigation data, traffic data and all the other services that Google’s Maps have been providing. The new Huawei Maps will bring all the latest navigation features to the upcoming Huawei Smartphones.
Just like Google’s Maps’ service, Huawei’s Maps will also come as a private map that will also be compatible with Android devices. However, the same has not yet been confirmed by the officials. Huawei’s previous smartphones are running on Android Operating System. So we hope that the new Huawei Maps will also be made available for the older Huawei Smartphone Users.
If we talk about the partnered company, Huawei has partnered with TomTom which is not a new company in the field. The company has already been providing navigation data through its apps. The company has been in the same field for over 20 years now and is now planning to collaborate with the Chinese OEM to bring the Navigation services to Smartphone devices manufactured by Huawei.
Both the companies haven’t spoken anything or disclosed anything about the deal which has been sealed recently. It is unclear how the Government of the US will take this news regarding the collaboration of Huawei and TomTom.
Of course, it takes years of time to replace Google’s services such as Google search, Google Maps, Google Chrome and Google mail. Huawei is replacing all the other Google services one by one to create a new platform and a new hub of apps just like Google’s Play Store. The new Application store from Huawei will be exclusive for the future Huawei Smartphone, at least that’s what we believe.
We will get to learn more about this deal in the coming days as we haven’t received any official statements yet.
