The big news this week was actually the fall of Trump's decision to add Huawei to the well-known business list last week. Dominoes began to fall when Google recalled Huawei's access to Android on Sunday. Since then, Qualcomm, Intel, Arm, SD Association, Wi-Fi Alliance and others have cut ties with the Chinese company to comply with US law.

This did not prevent Huawei from pushing forward with the release of the Honor 20 Pro, providing a premium experience at an excellent price.
