This week in Android: HUAWEI back in action and Samsung device leaks

Huawei's blacklisting might be coming to an end, plus a sneak peek at a Samsung's upcoming devices.

The big story this week was potentially the end of Huawei’s ongoing troubles with the U.S. government. At the G20 Summit in Osaka, Trump announced that HUAWEI will be able to work with American companies once again, which might signal the beginning of the end of Huawei’s blacklisted status. This is great news for the Chinese company that lost up to $30bn of revenue as a result of the ban, even though less than 1 percent of the HUAWEI P30 Pro uses American-made components.

Samsung also made the news this week, but not by choice. Renders of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus leaked on Friday, complete with hole punch camera right in the middle of the display. To top things off, the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 also leaked.

We also released our review of the Motorola One Vision and a hands-on of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e tablet. We also gave our thoughts on the OnePlus 7 Pro camera, which OnePlus is keen to improve over time.
