Major technology companies are considering their next steps after the United States blacklisted Chinese tech giant Huawei over national security concerns.

American suppliers have three months to keep supporting Huawei users before they have to cut ties.

Google said it will carry on updating its software on existing Huawei devices, but new handsets won't have access to its operating system and applications.

That's raising questions about how the world's second-largest mobile phone maker will adapt.

How will consumers and the industry be affected? And could this change the course of the ongoing US-China trade war?
